Reviews - What do customers think about Have Faith Anyway: The Vision of Habakkuk for Our Times?
Have Faith Anyway Nov 7, 2008
This is an extremely timely book. The world is indeed in trouble, but as Dr. Keith argues, we can have faith anyway. I found the chapter comparing faith and beliefs to be very helpful. The last chapter, with its conversation between a Christian and God, is truly inspiring.
Have Faith Anyway Nov 4, 2008
What a great reminder of how we can choose to view life in these turbulent times. I've read the book several times, and it gets better. The book is powerful in its simplicity of reminding us that we are not the only ones who have had troubling times, and we can choose how to approach our problems. I am personally tired of the fear approach and am renewing my commitment to faith. Even though I don't understand why or how long things will be difficult, or even how to turn things around. If we profess faith, we might as well apply it.
