    Stay Curious: How Questions and Doubts Can Save Your Faith

    Most of us are going through the motions when it comes to faith, believing we've found all the relevant answers to life's questions. When we make certainty and correct belief the end goal of faith, we miss out on the chance to know God more deeply. Our questions and doubts, push us closer to a God we can actually believe in--rather than further from a God we think we can contain.

  • Confident Humility: Becoming Your Full Self without Becoming Full of Yourself

    Confident Humility: Becoming Your Full Self without Becoming Full of Yourself

    Self-help books emerge from one of two flawed views of the self--that people are fundamentally bad or fundamentally good--and these mutually exclusive ditches are destructive. Dan Kent presents a third view. He shows how the humility Jesus revealed offers the most accurate, freeing view of the self. Whereas the ditches both lead to powerlessness and passivity, humility as Jesus teaches it is empowering, fosters proactivity, and serves as a scaffold for true confidence.
