A Story of Belief, Uncertainty, and Boundless Love
By Kyle R. Cupp
What People Are Saying
"Candid, sincere and always refreshingly honest, Living by Faith, Dwelling by Doubt is one man's story of faith—lost and found—which will give you pause to consider your own trajectory of belief. Read, ponder and believe."
—Lisa M. Hendey, author of A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms
"In this memoir, readers will find many of the facts they know so well as to find cliche ("God is Love," "Faith is a gift," etc.) refracted through Cupp's experience until we find these truths vivid, jarring, and urgent again."
—Leah Libresco, Huffington Post, Patheos.com
"Living by Faith, Dwelling in Doubt is a powerful and moving account of one man's journey of faith. Cupp writes with humor, compassion, love, and no small amount of wisdom in the face of life's most profound mysteries. His examples are wide-ranging and eminently relatable: from video games, pop culture, teenage jobs, and middle school angst to the depths of love, loss, birth, and death. Here questioning and exploration win out over triumphalism and easy certainties, and Cupp illustrates how the otherness in our experience can give birth to an uncontainable love even in the face of doubt, weakness, brokenness, sadness, and perhaps most powerfully in the face of the appalling suffering of children that Dostoevsky rightly identified as the strongest challenge to faith. In the midst of this incomprehensible mystery, Cupp argues that faith in God is love and that we are never more 'religious' than when we love, which helps us to find worlds of meaning even in the confused and broken fragments of the postmodern condition."
