Can It Be True?: A Personal Pilgrimage Through Faith and Doubt
The Christian faith inherently confronts some very troublesome questions. Nagging doubts surface about the trustworthiness of Scripture, the place of miracles, finding God's personal guidance, the hypocrisy of fellow Christians, and other root issues.
Michael Wakely uses his own struggles with doubt as a clear challenge to experience salvation and the reality of faith without having all the answers. Can It Be True provides a dose of reality, an honest viewpoint and a fresh look at faith that will strengthen and inspire.
" These pages have a powerful ring of reality. True stories of real people, not all with happy endings, jump off the pages of this book."--George Verwer Founder, Operation Mobilization

I read just a portion of this book, and my, my, my was it ever disappointing. I am not give a shout out to the Prosperity Preacher. However, I am for the preacher, minister, healer who preaches hope in the midst of sorrow. Yes, we will indeed suffer sometimes. In fact, we are on top of the mountain as much as we are in the valley. However, throughout the Scripture, we find natural situations being overcome and affected by spiritual, supernatural power. God and Christ are not outside of us to be called on when we need the POWER. The Gift and the Giver are INSIDE, carried in our hearts. When believe we can overcome, believe it in our hearts, the Word of God will spring forth as healing, prosperity (mind, body, spirit). To me the book sounds hateful. I believe in Proverbs 20:1-4. I believe Matthew 6:24, I believe sickness may come. However, we can overcome it and become even closer to God.
