Item description for What Faith Is Not by Mitch Finley...
In his trademark accessible and thought-provoking style, Mitch Finley offers us a book that explores what faith is not, so that we can understand what faith is. Dispensing with common misconceptions of faith as a way around suffering, a source of secret knowledge, a security blanket, a crutch, a way to escape death, an answer to all questions, a solution to all problems, and an antidote to doubt, Finley helps us make the most of our finite human language in talking about our infinite God. Mixing wisdom from Scripture, tradition, and everyday life with humor and insight, Finley helps us understand faith as a gift that stretches our minds, helps us learn from suffering, motivates us to reach out to those in need, and leads us to more meaningful and joyful living.

Reviews - What do customers think about What Faith Is Not?
Especially recommended for Catholic readers Feb 8, 2002
What Faith Is Not is a book that takes a rather different and engaging approach to understanding and appreciating the nature of faith -- by focusing upon what should not be confused with faith. Author Mitch Finley (recipient of numerous awards including ten Catholic Press Association Journalism and Book Awards and an Excellence in Writing Award from the American Society of Journalists and Authors) displays his theological and linguistic skill with his deep, soul-striking presentation of that which gives life and love true substance. What Faith Is Not is especially recommended for Catholic readers, as well as anyone else wresting questions of personal faith within a Christian context.
