New Xulon Book Defends Key Beliefs versus Modern Skepticism
Howe helps Christians confront unsettling questions
Maitland, FL (PRWEB) December 20, 2012
With Belief in the Face of Doubt ($16.99, paperback, 978-1-62419-745-1; $8.49, e-book, 978-1-62419-746-8), Dr. Howe deals with claims of modern society that weaken Christian beliefs and lead to questioning instead of faith. He explores issues that many Christians struggle with as a result of challenges posed by modern science. Dr. Howe shares the fruit of three years of studying the spiritual insights of great Christian thinkers, specifically concerning twelve issues central to Christian belief. These insights are thus made available for his readers in their own personal struggles, in facing tough questions posed by others as well as their own doubts.
“With this book I seek to strengthen and revitalize Christians' beliefs by creating accessibility to the thinking of Augustine, Aquinas, Luther, Calvin and many others, including contemporary theologians,” states the author. “Belief in the Face of Doubt will serve as an extremely valuable resource, a must read, for the thinking Christian.” In the face of skepticism arising in a world that often views science as arbiter of truth, readers will now have a tool in their hands to rise to new heights, turning their doubts into opportunities for growth instead of stumbling blocks.
Dr. Stephen Howe is an accomplished scientist and lay theologian who also struggles with issues concerning Christian beliefs. After retiring in 2007 from a career in aeronautical engineering, he devoted three years to full-time independent studies in Christian Theology. Following course curricula from two leading seminaries, he realized early on that theological works contain many valuable insights concerning the questions of greatest concern to the lay Christian. In this book he seeks to provide the insights he has gained to others who have similar questions.
