O Me Of Little Faith by Jason Boyett - Book Review
After three decades of knowing God, understanding Christianity, and living a Christian life, Boyett has come to the place where he can voice the tough questions and travel the road of uncertainty with blinders off, candor on.
The message along the way is one of encouragement: Relax. Rely on the grace of a merciful God, a kind father who realizes that his finite creatures must have doubts, should have questions, and will have trouble making sense of an infinite Creator. Ultimately, Boyett concludes that doubt and faith are not polar opposites, but actually work together, existing side-by-side.
Uplifting, entertaining, hopeful, O Me of Little Faith will strike a chord with you and any Christian who’s dealing with the uncertainties of living life in pursuit of a God who occasionally seems to disappear.

Jason Boyett writes openly and honestly, expressing his doubts and asking questions that many of us have but dare not express. Reading Jason's book is like having a conversation with a friend over coffee.
Jason is on a journey of a lifetime. He is "an ernest seeker who clings to faith even as he explores the hiddeness of God." [Quoted from back cover copy.]
Jason has written this book for doubters. He understands the questions that people are asking, in their hearts, at least. He explores the relationship between faith and doubt. He doesn't tie up all the loose ends, and hand us a neat package with all the doubts resolved. The journey continues.
This book asks the tough questions, and helps us to think through what we believe and why.
I wish to thank the publisher, Zondervan, for providing a copy of the book for review purposes.
Jason's book is available through http://www.amazon.com/
