Journey of Faith: Helping People Navigate 50 Key Obstacles to Christianity


The journey of faith is a never-ending dance with questions and answers that, if we allow them to, leads us deeper and deeper into the heart of God. However, at a single moment in time, the Christian can be broadsided by issues, ideas, questions, and perspectives that hinder our journey of faith. Sometimes we and those we care about ask difficult questions that expose underlying doubts about God’s nature. Is he really good? Is he really powerful enough to come through for me? Is he just?

Journey of Faith: Helping People Navigate 50 Key Obstacles to Christianity gives brief answers to 50 questions that attempt to derail the progress of our faith. Many of these questions threaten to undermine or detract the Christian from their pursuit of God’s will for their lives. Journey of Faith is unique in that most chapters are limited to four to five pages. In a busy world, many Christians don’t always have the time or the inclination to read an entire book or a very long chapter on each of these compelling issues. It’s also written so that every chapter contains illustrations or conversations that reflect real faith experiences of Christians and skeptics alike. Finally, Journey of Faith is a resource guide. It’s a book where 50 vital and tough questions are placed in ten easy-to-find categories.

I found Dr. Strawsburg’s new book Footprints of Faith a remarkable work on apologetics. He takes on the toughest
questions, answers them thoroughly and cogently, but does so in a way everybody can understand. I predict that this will be
a big hit in Bible study groups across North America. It’s very well done.
