Item Description...
Overview
As human beings we wrestle with doubt in understanding faith; yet throughout Christian history doubt has been seen as inappropriate. Teachers and pastors have enjoined their people not to doubt, while theologians have sought to explain how faith is to be understood in a way that overcomes doubt. In Wrestling with Doubt, Frank D. Rees provides a theological analysis of doubt as a constructive element within the Christian experience of faith. He considers three theological frameworks, each of which offers an interpretation of doubt, and two life-story theologies that deal with faith and doubt. These approaches are shown to depend critically upon the concept of God: leading to the conclusion that an adequate understanding of the relation of doubt to faith is ultimately a theological issue, requiring an understanding of God appropriate to the personal dynamics of faith and doubt. Wrestling with Doubt presents a theological argument which includes and combines theological scholarship, biblical reflection, and pastoral experience. It is for all who may have rejected the idea that doubt and faith are incompatible, but have not thus far been offered an adequate theological argument for their intuitive reaction. It will also be useful for pastors and teachers, as a reference text in pastoral theology and as a resource in spiritual direction.

A scholarly analysis of three theological frameworks  Oct 5, 2002
Wrestling With Doubt: Theological Reflections On The Journey Of Faith by Frank D. Rees (Dean of Theology and Professor of Systematic Theology, Whitley College of the Melbourne College of Divinity, University of Melbourne, Australia, and President, Australian and New Zealand Association of Theological Schools) is an impressive and scholarly analysis of three theological frameworks that postulate on the issue and phenomena of doubt. The reasonings of Newman, Barth, and Tillich are all discussed, compared, and set forth in this meticulous, well reasoned, informed and informative examination of faith, doubt, and belief in Jesus Christ.

Viewing Doubt Constructively  Jul 2, 2001
People of faith have always experienced doubt, but many have been taught that doubt signifies a loss or absence of faith. Frank Rees PhD shows that doubt can be a constructive element within a life-journey of faith.

Wrestling with Doubt explores three major thinkers who have tried to explin the relationship between faith and doubt: Cardinal Newman, Karl Barth and Paul Tillich. The discussion of these leads to the conclusion that the relation of doubt and faith is essentially a theological question-understood only by considering the nature of God. Evidence for this approach is found in the life story theologies of Harry Williams and Val Webb. Then Frank Rees offers his own account of the God of the Bible as "God the Conversationalist." This God is seen to ask real life questions about personal responsibility, social ethics, as well as religious questions.

The book suggests that the life of faith is a 'journey' of believing and doubting, protesting and exploring, and many other elements-not an intra-individual state but a shared adventure of the self, others and God.

The book is written in a way which provides scholars with many resources of interest, yet is clearly accessible to 'ordinary' souls who continue to wrestle with doubt. It doesn't give us an 'answer'but a possible way to live with our questions.
