Welcome!

This is a blog about faith, doubt, and the tough questions in-between.  I write about the questions that keep me up at night.  These include (but are not limited to):

  • Should modern science change the way we think about God?
  • Does God exist?
  • Why does God sometimes feel distant?
  • Does God act in the world?  (And if so, how?)

I’m not looking for superficial answers, nor am I simply trying to validate whatever beliefs I happened to grow up with.  Instead, I try to face my questions head-on in search of what I can honestly believe with my whole heart, soul, and mind.

Smarter people than I have already written about these questions in great detail, so I spend a lot of time doing research.  Unfortunately, many of the most interesting responses to my questions are encoded in the dense, complicated lingo of academic theology and philosophy.  I use this blog to translate (as best I can) their interesting ideas into a more readable, engaging language.

From October 2016 to October 2017, I am working on what I call a “God Project.”  For more on what, exactly, this is, check out this post.  Your feedback is always appreciated, so please share your own thoughts and experiences in the comments sections.

You may notice that when I refer to the name of a book or display an image of its cover, I include a link to Amazon.  This is because I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for me to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites. Who knows – maybe one day my obsession with books will pay for itself!
