I believe that many of us reflect on our faith and sometimes have doubts, but not everyone will write down their thoughts about it. This is exactly what Roger A. Marum did in his book Faith, Doubt, and Listening: Lessons Learned by a Reluctant Disciple, in which he compiles a series of essays from his website, written over several years. The topics covered are varied, but they all relate to the author's spiritual and psychological journey. The essays are divided into sections and deal with themes such as listening to God despite doubts, waiting in silence, and prayers, while there are also tales concerning the season of Advent. In short, it is a fascinating collection.
Faith, Doubt, and Listening is a profound book. I am sure that Roger A. Marum will capture the interest of his readers thanks to his clear style of writing. What struck me most was the variety of topics he covered. At the outset, I was expecting a book with just a few themes. On the contrary, there are many, and the way Marum presents them to his readers is one of the strong points of his book. I like to think of each essay as a mix between reflection and a story, which is why they are so enjoyable to read. I recommend this book to readers who share the author's approach to faith and doubt, but also an interest in the in-depth reflection and quest for truth. This is a read they will not easily forget.
