Summary
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
