A candid, encouraging guide for those who wrestle with doubt in their journey of faith
^^Call it existential doubt or "the dark night of the soul." However you term it, God-doubting is undeniably a part of the Christian experience, suffered by saints throughout history from Therese of Lisieux to Mother Theresa. In fact, nearly all believers doubt God at one time or another. Faith at the Edge is a book designed for doubters who struggle with their faith within the Christian tradition.

^^What causes that sense of divine absence? Are we at fault? How should we respond? Robert Wennberg answers these and other troubling questions through personal illustrations and through the wisdom and insight of such figures as Blaise Pascal, G. K. Chesterton, Simone Weil, C. S. Lewis, and Martin Marty. Laying out a credible theological account of what happens during doubt, Wennberg helps us understand how we can cope with these dark episodes and even profit from them spiritually.^

Have you ever doubted your faith? Have you ever, deep down in your heart, doubted that God was really present in your life? Or wondered whether everything you believed in as a Christian was false? / Call it existential doubt. Call it the dark night of the soul, as one Christian saint famously did. Whatever you call it, its real. It is personal, it is painful, it is distressing, and it can last for years maybe even a lifetime. / You are not alone. Such crises of the soul have come upon saints throughout Christian history from John of the Cross in the sixteenth century to Mother Teresa in our own time. In fact, there may be something of this God-doubting in all of us. At some point in our Christian walk, most of us have traveled or will travel this dark path. / In Faith at the Edge Robert Wennberg draws from his own experience with doubt to address such troubling issues. But he also calls upon the wisdom and insight of such figures as Blaise Pascal, G. K. Chesterton, Simone Weil, C. S.
