Doubt Continued...

Scot McKnight did a follow up letter to the letter he recieved regarding 'Doubt'. 

His response is worth reading and for its generosity and wisdom. It is something that  I'll kept 'stared' in the google reader.

But I have to begin with this observation: you will never go back to where you were and you will never be the same again and you will never get back to where things were. Instead, this season of doubt, which for some lasts months and for others years and even in some ways lingers for a lifetime, is with you and it changes you and your faith. There is a temptation to seek to go back and find your first feelings or your former way of doing things. That approach to encountering doubt teaches most us one one thing: that's not the approach that "works."
