Uble making sense of an infinite Creator Ultimately Boyett concludes that doubt and faith are not polar opposites but actually work together existing side by side Uplifting entertaining hopeful O Me of Little Faith will strike a chord with you and any Christian who's dealing with the uncertainties of living life in pursuit of a God who occasionally seems to disappear. O Me of Little Faith by Jason BoyettIsn't the Cover of this book just the greatest I will admit that the cover is what drew me to this book but once I Started reading it I was intrigued The author raised some uestions that me as a Christian for over 30 plus years was a bit uncomfortable with but if I was really honest with myself I have thought in the deep recesses of my mind before uestions reguarding Science and do we have to disreguard it Why are most Christians interested in the Social aspect of church than in the living out of the principles of Christ If some are really capable of miracle healings why aren't they doing so in hospitals and at hospice Just to name a few Boyett relates all of this with an insight and humor that makes us fell like it is ok to have these uestions I am glad that someone else has voiced these uestions and that I am not alone in my wondering Through it all though the author maintains his belief in God and Jesus and I think that is the main point of the book That you can have uestions but still have beliefI received a copy of the book in exchange for a honest opinion from the publisher

In O Me of Little Faith author Jason Boyett brings you a transparent and personal account of his own of struggles with doubts and unbelief in living out his faith With humor and frankness Boyett uses personal anecdotes and a fresh look at Scripture to explore the realities of pursuing Christ through a field of doubt After three decades of knowing God understanding Ch. O Me of Little Faith by Jason Boyett is a book about doubt by a guy who’s determined to keep the faith I wanted to read it because I enjoyed an article by this author in Relevant Magazine and from there I discovered and began freuenting his blog His old one here he’s since moved it to In the book I encountered the humor I’ve come to expect from Boyett As a mom of three boys who is trying her best to raise them to believe in and follow Jesus I especially appreciated his boyhood faith stories I find myself reassured that in spite of his early faith encounters and beliefs many of which had to be shed and reshaped he still grew into a man who explains “Discarding faith would be like discarding both my legs at the hip I’ve been standing on them for as long as I can remember Faith is part of who I am It would be deeply wounding to lose it” Yes exactlyI too am a doubter This wasn’t so difficult earlier in my faith because unlike Boyett I didn’t grow up in the church or with family guiding me toward Christianity In my high school and college experience working through one’s faith by tossing out the big uestions was embraced but somewhere along the way I came to realize that certain ideas and subjects were taboo in the adult faith world Mutter the world universalism and you could be branded a heretic Ditto if you imply that a bookstory of the Bible could be metaphor Or that some of what we believe was influenced by other religionsbeliefs of the culture during biblical times OrSo what happens if you’re still ok with asking the big uestions admitting that you don’t come down on any particular side of a theological debate because well you just don’t know Do you keep uiet in church or just forgo the façade Boyett who is a committed member of a Southern Baptist church is making room for another alternative Go Doubt Serve Be Honest See what happens The “Be Honest” part is where we doubters are going to have to stand together I’ve been in a traditional Sunday school environment where a non traditional idea gets offered up and then everyone looks uncomfortable until the leader or most outspoken person sets this person “straight” Ouch But if we want our faith places to embrace those of little beginning or none at all faith we’ve got to change this We can no longer be afraid of where conversations may lead us Can we bring the vulnerability Boyett exemplifies in this book into our churches If we care about the survival of the modern church I think we have to
