Product Description

  • Written by a best-selling, award-winning author
  • Contains author's personal struggle with his faith
  • Speaks to the theological virtue of faith
  • Provides an introduction to Christian expression of faith
  • Incorporates humor


At some point in our lives, no matter who we are-laity, clergy, consecrated men/women-we question, doubt, or struggle with our faith commitment. Even individuals who have been canonized or beatified have had this experience. Maybe the faith you acquired during childhood no longer resonates with the challenges you face as an adult. Or, perhaps you have suffered a painful loss or illness that has shaken the foundations of your belief. Or, maybe you simply can't seem to find the time or drive to make faith a constant in your life.

Especially in today's age where information overload and personal responsibilities divert our attentions, Church scandal prompts distrust, and Catholic social teaching stirs criticism, our faith is more fragile than ever before. 

As someone who has personally struggled with his faith, best-selling author R. Scott Hurd knows all too well the questions, doubts, and challenges that can emerge within a faith commitment. And while he realizes that there's no overnight transformation from Homer Simpson to Mother Teresa, there is still hope for the wary, weak, and wandering. If you're a Catholic who values your faith, but you feel like sometimes you're hanging on to it by a thread, this book is for you.

Combining his pastoral ministry experiences with his conversational writing style and humorous nature, Father Hurd reassures, inspires, encourages, and challenges you to take practical steps to reawaken your faith. He acknowledges the chaotic, instantaneous, and competitive age we live in, along with disillusionment by recent Church and world scandals, tensions with the institutional Church, and disagreement with Catholic teaching, providing a grounded reality from which you can approach your faith. 

He then offers ideas for how to integrate the faith into all aspects of your life-spiritually, practically, and leisurely. Whether it is going to confession to "shed some baggage," spending quality time with your family to express and experience love, or taking a hike to appreciate the wonder of creation, Father Hurd nourishes you with many ways to help you when faith feels fragile. Through his guidance, you can accept God's beautiful and priceless gift of faith.
