Over the past few months, I’ve been working up a book proposal based on a blog post from 2016:
“Christian, learn to say ‘Perhaps'”
It’s about reclaiming what I call the sacred middle ground between “Doubt” (pervasive skepticism) and “Dogmatism” (abrasive certainty).
The alternative is something that I’ve dubbed “Faith seeking imagination” (fides quaerens imaginationem).
I’m excited about the project, and I hope to hear back from a publisher this month.
In the meantime, I had the chance to preach on the topic last Sunday–using the story of Gen. 22 (Abraham’s near sacrifice of Isaac) as a guide.
My big idea was fairly simple: Sometimes, believing in God’s supernatural providence means learning how to say “Perhaps.”
