Redeeming Doubt (The Other Side of Faith)

Redeeming Doubt (The Other Side of Faith) July 5, 2013

Thanks to Tony Jones for posting an excerpt from Emerging Prophet on his blog today (and tomorrow). The post today is from my reflections on epistemology, Against Certainty, in which I argue that doubt is not an enemy of real, authentic faith; rather, it represents the “other side” of faith. Both Kierkegaard and the emergent church (in particular, leading emergent leaders/thinkers (McLaren, Peter Rollins, Tony Jones, etc.) and contemporary thinkers who influenced them (Caputo, Westphall, Richard Beck, etc.).

I encourage you to head over to Jones’ blog and join in the conversation. I’ll be checking in from time to time and responding to comments there.
