Hubert G Locke

Paperback 2004-03-01

Publisher Description

This heartfelt book recounts the author's personalstruggles with doubt, uncertainty, and skepticism inthe face of three consequential life experiences -- thedeath of his parents, his life as a black American, andhis lifelong preoccupation with the Nazi Holocaust.For Hubert Locke, as for many others who sharehis circumstances or sensitivities, these experienceshave presented a serious challenge to conventionalChristian teaching. They have forced him to reexamine Scripture, where he has ultimately -- and beneficially -- discovered a remarkable congeniality on thepart of biblical writers with doubters and skeptics."Doubt is not an act of unbelief," Locke writes. "In fact and ironically, doubt may be a supreme actof faith and devotion. If this is too much to claim, atleast doubt and skepticism are stances that Scriptureunderstands and for which the Bible has the utmostsympathy.""Searching for God in Godforsaken Times and Places isa heart-cry by one person whose honest journeythrough life hasearned him,a special kind of spiritual peace, a person who has profound insights tooffer others seeking to live Christianly in a confusing, contradictory world. Penetrating and sensitive, questioning and honest, this book is for believersand seekers alike who are looking for a meaningful, real discussion of life's duplicity.
