I’m officially an author now. Today marks the release date of my book Living by Faith, Dwelling in Doubt, a reflective memoir about the uncertainty that came to rest at the heart of my religious faith and why I believe this uncertain faith, if not well-suited to everyone, may benefit those struggling to reconcile their belief with their unbelief, their faith with their doubts.
Fair warning: it’s not a book that tells you how I arrived at all the right answers. It’s a story about my struggles to live in a state of questioning and my decisions to hope and love, as best I can, without the surety of what this life is all about. It’s an account of my attempts to make sense of a life shattered by divorce, estrangement, and terrible losses. Mostly it’s about the people I strive to love and my hope that death does not rob my love of its meaning and worth–that love endures and will endure when all that we call life has passed away.
If you’re so inclined, you can get the book from Loyola Press, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble. Some other places have it as well. I have you all to thank, actually, as it was a guest post I wrote here that led to my getting the attention of the publisher. And your feedback over these past couple years has aided me tremendously as I’ve endeavored to think through my doubts and questions.
