"Enns asserts that Christians can focus so much on the angst of
uncertainty that they place God inside a stifling mental box. . . .
A fine work for believers of all stripes."--Library
"Enns has delivered yet another to-be-read-frequently volume to my library."--Clarion Journal of Spirituality and Justice
"Enns is brilliant at taking the big topics, those Christian ideas that usually scare us or intimidate us or worry us, and then make those very places a meeting place with a God who is bigger and wilder and more wonderful and trustworthy than we ever could have guessed."--Sarah Bessey, author of Out of Sorts and Jesus Feminist
"If you're afraid that your theological questions and doubts disqualify you from being a person of faith, theologian Peter Enns has good news for you. Really good news. And it's a delightful read too!"--Brian D. McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christianity
"Peter Enns' new book, The Sin of Certainty, will make you reflect on your life and question what you believe. That's a good thing."--Joel Anderson, Resurrecting Orthodoxy
"Seldom have I read a book that I so totally agree with! This is a very fine, very readable, often humorous, and much needed analysis of what Western Christianity is up against."--Richard Rohr, author of Falling Upward
"This book is accessible, freeing, empowering, and beautiful. I underlined almost every page. I only wish I had it in my hands fifteen years ago! I'm deeply thankful for Enns's work and his new book is right on time for many of us."--Sarah Bessey, author of Out of Sorts and Jesus Feminist
