McGrath defines doubt as not scepticism or unbelief, but as a mixture of questions and uncertainty, something that is “a permanent fixture of the Christian life,” and a “kind of spiritual growing pain.” McGrath points out that all worldviews have an element of faith (even atheism) and that no respectable Theologian or Scientist thinks they can prove or disprove God’s existence. McGrath also deals with doubts about the gospel, oneself, Jesus, and offers some useful tips on how to handle doubt. Lots of quotes and anecdotes, especially with/from C.S. Lewis and Pascal. Main takeaway: if faith is a form of resistance in a land occupied by an invader power, then expect your faith to be assaulted and challenged on every front, feeling prodded, weakened, and unguarded is natural.
