O Me of Little Faith ~ a review

O Me of Little Faith

I was sent a review copy of this book from Zondervan.  In return for the free book, I’ll post a review on this blog.  By the way, thanks Zondervan, for the free book!!!

This book is exactly what the title suggests.  It’s the recounting of one man’s journey with God and doubt. 

Jason Boyett is very forthcoming about his story.  I found this honest account of his ongoing battle with doubt refreshing. 

Too many times we either brush our doubt under a rug and pretend everything’s fine or just refuse to acknowledge it altogether.  At least that’s the case with me.  More and more I’m unable to ignore the doubts that creep up.  (Mom, don’t worry, that’s not a proclamation of leaving the faith.)  I have to meet them head on and either overcome them or learn to live with them, as the author does. 

The thing that I found so beautiful in this book was the choice that he makes to “believe” even when things are unbelievable.  That’s the hope that I came away with.  Even when you can’t wrap your head around a concept, you can still choose to have faith.

Choose to have faith.  That’s what I want.  That’s what I choose.  Every day.

I haven’t really given you a clear picture of the book.  I just sort of shoved an idea at you.  But I like that.  I want you to be intrigued and get this book and see for yourself this man’s journey.  I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

You can find this book at Amazon, B&N, CBD or Zondervan.

You can also follow Jason Boyett’s blog.  That’s how I found out about his upcoming book and Blog Tour.
