Item Description...
Overview
This book about faith and doubt, and the quest for certitude is for anyone who has ever asked: how can I really know there is a God? How can a loving God allow evil and suffering? Does science made my faith look foolish? What can I do to find assurance? William O'Malley provides persuasive answers to questions raised by the "new atheists," authors like Christopher Hitchens (God Is Not Great) and Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion) whose certitude that there is no God has sparked international conversations between religious and scientific worldviews. Fr. O'Malley addresses the core issues with philosophical conviction and goes beyond the debate with heartfelt understanding for individuals, like himself, who sometimes doubt but always seek grace, understanding and truth.

Publishers Description
William O'Malley provides persuasive answers to questions raised by the "new atheists," authors like Christopher Hitchens (God Is Not Great) and Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion) whose certitude that there is no God has sparked a national conversation between religious and scientific worldviews. Fr. O'Malley addresses the core issues with philosophical conviction and goes beyond the debate with heartfelt understanding for individuals, like himself, who sometimes doubt but always seek grace, understanding and truth. Help My Unbelief helps believers (and belief includes occasional doubt) to understand the issues, tolerate ambiguity in their lives, and continue their quest to see the invisible and know the unknowable. Knowing trumps believing. And O'Malley shows that there is a way of knowing that transcends argument and offers the possibility of moral certitude and certain assurance.

You Have Nothing to Lose but a Closed Mind  May 17, 2010
Doubting my faith lately, I was looking for a book on apologetics so perfect it could be guaranteed to convert an atheist to a believer. This is NOT that book. However, it's guaranteed, no matter who you are, Catholic, Protestant, atheist, agnostic, or something in between, to make you think.

It's clear that O'Malley is intelligent, or at least well-read and current. The book is filled with philosophical quotes not only from famous Christian thinkers, but from well-known atheists such as Dawkins, Darwin, Sagan, Freud, and Nietzsche. O'Malley refers to sources as diverse as Star Wars and The Matrix. O'Malley's writing voice is intellectual, witty, and very conversational.

Early on, O'Malley debates the existence of a soul and discusses what makes someone human. He points out, interestingly, that Freud's work has often been misinterpreted, replacing "soul" with "mind." In further chapters, O'Malley explains why comparing the Bible to myths isn't the worst thing someone could do and removes several of the stumbling blocks from unbelievers understanding the Bible. In later chapters, O'Malley looks at accusations from scientists like Richard Dawkins and argues that science has not taken away the need for a God. And he does this while remaining humble and largely avoiding ad hominem attacks. O'Malley's final chapter takes an honest look at the old question of evil and why a good God would allow suffering.

The largest chapter, nestled in the middle of the book, is called "The Imperfect Church." I found the chapter to be a good defense of the Catholic faith, and, by extension, an answer to many accusations unbelievers level against Christianity and religion in general.

O'Malley's book isn't theologically flawless, and it doesn't offer very many definitive arguments against Richard Dawkins et al., but as far as food for thought goes, it will give any reader plenty of solid meat to chew on. The book might not change everything you believe, but it will prompt you to evaluate what you're willing to believe in. You have nothing to lose but a closed mind.
