Synopses & Reviews
William O'Malley provides persuasive answers to questions raised by the new atheists, authors like Christopher Hitchens (God Is Not Great) and Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion) whose certitude that there is no God has sparked a national conversation between religious and scientific worldviews. Fr. O'Malley addresses the core issues with philosophical conviction and goes beyond the debate with heartfelt understanding for individuals, like himself, who sometimes doubt but always seek grace, understanding and truth. Help My Unbelief helps believers (and belief includes occasional doubt) to understand the issues, tolerate ambiguity in their lives, and continue their quest to see the invisible and know the unknowable. Knowing trumps believing. And O'Malley shows that there is a way of knowing that transcends argument and offers the possibility of moral certitude and certain assurance.
