Enns offers a model of vibrant faith that views skepticism not as a loss of belief, but as an opportunity to deepen religious conviction with courage and confidence. He models an acceptance of mystery and paradox and shows that God prefers this path because it is only this way by which we can become mature disciples who truly trust God. In doing so, he gives Christians who have known only the demand for certainty permission to view faith on their own flawed, uncertain, yet heartfelt, terms.

I cannot think of another book that has caused me to jump between desiring to purchase a copy I could highlight and just wanting to be done with the thing more than this one. Mr. Enns makes a lot of good points, however, and I think his overarching point is absolutely worth reading and considering. Would I have some questions for him on sub-points? Yeah. Do I agree with his approach on everything? No. My suggestion would be to read it, glean from it what you can and use that to grow.
