Selling Doubt

The one who commits themselves to the task of helping people really enter into doubt, unknowing, and ambiguity needs to be ten, twenty, even a hundred times better than those who sell certainty. They have got to be prepared to walk a difficult and often dangerous path if they wish to invite people into this murky and uncertain world, for in doing so they bring to the surface a whole host of anxieties that we spend so much of our time and resources repressing.

Jeremy, After reading your blog post here I read that book from Peter Rollins. I told you over breakfast at the Men's challenge how amazing that book and author was. Then I read Insurrection shortly after and had the same thoughts. It's refreshing to read from an author that takes God and our approach to Him out of the box. Thanks for tipping me off to this great author. Have you read any of his other books that you recommend?

I'm glad to hear it Dan. Those are the only two books I've read of his but I've been so impressed that I'm sure I'll eventually read them all. The other book of his that I hear rave reviews about is called "How not to speak of God." You should check that one out if you haven't already.
