This was an interesting read. The author is a Christian but writes about his struggle with doubt. There were many points in the book I agreed with but other points that I questioned. I feel that the book is very relevant because despite the author’s doubt he understands the importance in faith.
The tagline on the cover of the book says “True confessions of a spiritual weakling”, but I do not see the author as a spiritual weakling. I see him as a man who recognizes that our faith is built on our struggles and our doubts.

O Me of Little Faith by Jason Boyett.
In O Me of Little Faith, author Jason Boyett brings you a transparent and personal account of his own of struggles with doubts and unbelief in living out his faith. With humor and frankness, Boyett uses personal anecdotes and a fresh look at Scripture to explore the realities of pursuing Christ through a field of doubt.
After three decades of knowing God, understanding Christianity, and living a Christian life, Boyett has come to the place where he can voice the tough questions and travel the road of uncertainty with blinders off, candor on.
The message along the way is one of encouragement: Relax. Rely on the grace of a merciful God, a kind father who realizes that his finite creatures must have doubts, should have questions, and will have trouble making sense of an infinite Creator. Ultimately, Boyett concludes that doubt and faith are not polar opposites, but actually work together, existing side-by-side.
Uplifting, entertaining, hopeful, O Me of Little Faith will strike a chord with you and any Christian who’s dealing with the uncertainties of living life in pursuit of a God who occasionally seems to disappear.
