Building Faith Through Doubt – G17CDS731 Workshop ID: G17CDS731
Dates: July 9 – July 15, 2017
Price: $715.00 – $1,580.00
The way to an authentic, reliable faith runs through the valley of the shadow of doubt. Drawing on my 2016 book, “The Value of Doubt,” the class will explore various Christian doctrines and how asking difficult questions about them can help clarify their meaning. Class members also will write about their experiences of doubt and faith. They’ll also explore the resources available to help them with this journey and sample writers and thinkers who have covered some of this ground in helpful ways.
