You Need a Shot to the Head

I looked forward to receiving and reading this book.  It turned out to be a bigger challenge than I had expected.

It was well written and the information was interesting, some more than others. However, I do not feel like it is very practical to the average believer.  After just a few chapters, I began to realize how impactful this book could be to a small study group.

 A Shot of Faith to the Head was not quite what I expected, but don’t let that discourage you. There is a lot of great stuff in there to stretch you and make you put on your thinking cap! Doubts happen in all Christians’ lives, but, as Dr. Stokes says, “All thoughtful believers - even those who faith is mature - encounter doubt. Not a single person has had unadulterated faith. In any case, it certainly won’t do to ignore your doubts, and defusing them will only strengthen your faith. To be sure, doubts can be strong enough to become a trail in your life; but like all trails, they’re meant to refine faith, not stifle it.”
