Tyndale House Publishers
“Are you confident in your beliefs? Don’t let doubts or objections intimidate you. Bestselling author Mark Mittelberg will show ho you can enjoy a solid and robust faith that you can share with your skeptical friends or questions family members. There is a firm foundation for your beliefs with:
~ A fun Faith Path Questionnaire
~ The Twenty Arrows of Truth
~ The Ten Barriers to Belief
You can have confident faith. Discover how – today!”
Author Mark Mittelberg has attempted to create a “guide” to walk the believer through the process of how to be confident that the faith commitments and their beliefs are built on a solid foundation of facts.
In order to accomplish this, the book is divided into three sections. Section one contains the “Six Faith Paths’. Included in this section is a “fun” questionnaire that will help the reader to discover how they came to the beliefs they now trust in as well as an explanation of their current approach to faith.
The next section is a chapter-by-chapter explanation of the “Six Faith Paths”. This section is designed to help, and reinforce the approach the believer has using in the beliefs.
The next section contains the “Twenty Arrows of Truth” which point to the truth of the Christian faith. This section also serves as a reference for future use is discussions about faith by providing summaries of the truths.
The last section contains the “Ten Barriers to Belief”. These are common stumbling blocks that can hold the believer back on their journey to a rich and deep faith.
I was intrigued by the title of this book and was looking forward to reading it. For me, this book missed the mark. I felt a very negative vibe running throughout the entire book, from the vague questions in the “fun” questionnaire through the unpacking of the “Six Faith Paths” and into the last chapters. I had a difficult time finishing this book. Therefore, I cannot recommend this book.
