Growing in Faith

David Yount, Author, Carlton Books Ltd, Author, Donald Coggan, Foreword by Regnery Publishing $16 (0p) ISBN 978-0-89526-494-7
``This book is dedicated . . . to all those . . . who consider themselves Christian but . . . are unsure of their beliefs . . . and to the millions of church-going Christians whose faith was formed and informed in childhood but is stuck there.'' With these words Yount, a former clergyman and now chairman of the Seminary at the Washington National Cathedral, opens a work of astounding depth and thoroughness. Yount covers everything from traditional church history and personal relationships with Jesus to liturgy, worship and prayer as well as a catalogue of problems ranging from the unpopularity of many messages implicit in Christianity to the unresolvable mysteries explicit in Christian and Jewish scripture. There are incisive questions for study after each chapter and three appendices for further help in guided reading and the nurture of faith. Suitable for groups or individuals, this is an excellent book. (July)
