WHEN FAITH IS NOT ENOUGH
extraordinarily honest, informed, and probing address to the doubts that
confront the person of faith--and a firm affirmation of the conviction,
nonetheless, that only faith in God recognizes reality for what it is and
gives full meaning to life. Kelly James Clark does not dodge hard questions
and does not give evasive or mushy answers. Vividly and engagingly written,
with superb citations from other writers, it's compelling reading."
-- NICHOLAS WOLTERSTORFF
Yale Divinity School
"Clark probes the question of doubt--especially doubt for the 'believer'--with great courage, but also with great delicacy. If his questions threaten one's own scheme, then he has perhaps done the work he set out to do. In the end, though, it is a work springing, like the work of Dante or Pascal, from faith."
St. John's Seminary
'Absorbing. This is a terrific book--mature, insightful, and, above all, full of life. ...Lots of people write on this topic, but few write with such vitality and sheer wakefulness."
--CORNELIUS PLANTINGA JR.
Calvin Theological Seminary
"A wise and deceptively simple book, written with a simple directness that engages the reader. One is confident from the outset that one is going to be taken on an intellectual and spiritual journey by a guide who knows the way. A nice mixture of autobiographical anecdotes and literary references salts the text, Clark is a clear- headed philosopher whose faith enhances his reason."
University of Notre Dame
"Superb, in every way fine, a nice read--as 'they' say--and ever so luminous. I have learned a lot from it, want to consult it and recommend it."
--LEWIS B. SMEDES
Fuller Theological Seminary
