Don't Ask Me To Believe


Current surveys show a surprisingly high percentage of people in Western countries believe - or sort-of believe - in God. Many have had some experience or sense of a wider reality beyond the mortal material world, that can't be explained away in terms of physical science or psychology.
Many say they believe in some concept of God and are willing to consider the role of Jesus but are wary of organized Christianity, of accepting a whole package of beliefs or of committing to regular churchgoing.
But they accept the possibility that God may not only exist but may intervene in individual lives in some very human ways and in some supernatural ones.
And they are open to hearing others' experiences as well as pondering their own.
If you are one of those people, this book may be for you.
In their own words, a wide variety of ordinary people tell of the experiences that led them towards or through or away from faith in God. Faith, doubt and cynicism all feature in these accounts, and the author and interviewees are honest about their struggles with life and belief or non-belief in a God who cares personally for human beings.
Issues as diverse as religious teaching, childhood abuse, fear, intellectualism, illness, homosexuality, bereavement and crises of confidence - reveal some of the factors that make someone say, 'I believe this … and possibly this … but don't ask me to believe that!'
'Don't Ask Me to Believe' invites the reader to meet these doubters, believers and strugglers and to identify with or compare their own lives and experiences.
And see what you believe.
