"Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!"
Nothing has motivated Fleming Rutledge in her preaching more than addressing people's struggles with doubt. Now with a new preface from the author, Help My Unbelief speaks directly to the "faithful doubters" and the "unbelieving believers" of the church who wrestle with questions and uncertainties about Christian faith.
What if I'm not very religious?
Why isn't it enough just to be good and loving?
How can I respond to an abstraction like the Trinity?
Isn't Christianity outmoded?
Can we still believe in the Resurrection today?
Fleming Rutledge approaches these questions with a combination of pastoral warmth and theological fearlessness, aligning herself with those seeking answers and pointing readers toward the One who creates and sustains faith.
Fleming Rutledge is an Episcopal priest now engaged in a nationwide ministry of preaching and teaching. Her other best-selling books have been widely acclaimed across denominational boundaries and have established her reputation as one of America's finest preachers.
