Believers face three obstacles in modern society: None of the world’s major religions appeal to many in the Western world, science has made believing in God more difficult, and history doesn’t show a trend toward justice and compassion as war and suffering still exist, according to the author. “The capacity of science to explain the world around us makes it harder and harder to accept the traditional conception of God that is described in Genesis,” Correia writes. “In particular, it makes it difficult to accept the idea that we live in a universe that is controlled by a divine hand.”
The author himself, who was raised in a conservative Protestant church, has experienced conflict of disappointment in organized religion paired with an inability to think of the universe without God. In The Uncertain Believer, Correia explores the ways people think about God – or reject Him. Chapters cover such topics as the God of the Bible, the God of love, whether God created the universe and whether God exists at all. He provides food for thought on whether there is a conception of God that makes sense for modern times. Correia’s answer is a resounding yes. If readers can reconsider their childhood assumptions and come to terms with the idea of a loving God, that can help guide them to lives filled with strength, wisdom and peace.
Author Edward Correia served as special counsel to President Bill Clinton for civil rights, acting as a senior legal adviser on civil rights laws and constitutional issues. Clinton appointed Correia to the National Council on Disability. He was a professor of law at Northeastern University. The author is an adjunct professor at American University’s Washington College of Law and serves on the Board of Directors of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.
