This I Trust

Full Product Description

"Trust is not the opposite of challenge and doubt. It is precisely in doubt that trust finds its strength. It preserves this strength in the face of new questions. Trust does not prove itself by being able to provide someone with an answer to the theoretical question of where evil comes from. It shows itself in the fact that it does not capitulate even in the face of evil." -Wolfgang Huber The question of faith - so controverted today - is not at heart one of belief, argues Wolfgang Huber, but of trust. Do I trust life and the God of life? Can I yield to the love and promises of God, and to the imperatives of conscience and authenticity they entail? In these surprising meditations on classic words of the Christian tradition, from the Beatitudes and the Lord's Prayer to the stories of the birth and parables and death of Jesus, Bishop Huber searches for the fiery core and world-defying implications of Christian faith today. Alive to the complexities and ambiguities of contemporary life, he nonetheless asserts, "If we trust in God we can endure the uncertainties, accept the limitations, and receive the fullness of life as a gift." For those who struggle with the meaning of faith and Christian discipleship in their personal, familial, professional and political lives, Huber offers deep assurance and steep challenge. Wolfgang Huber is a prominent German theologian and ethicist. Engaged in both church and politics, he has served on numerous boards of ethics and public policy, as a professor of theology in the universities of Marburg and Heidelberg, and as Bishop of Berlin-Brandenburg from 1993 to 2009. His many published works range from medical and political ethics to political philosophy and theology.

This I Trust by Wolfgang Huber was published by World Council of Churches (WCC Publications) in January 2014. The ISBN for This I Trust is 9782825415795.
