An Uncertain Certainty
Snapshots in a Journey from "Either-Or" to "Both-And" in Christian Ministry
Imprint: Cascade Books
"When going forward is not doubted but a limp is developing, one realizes that ministry today is not as certain as some suggest. For those times, this wide-ranging, insightful, faithful book will cast the soft light of hope on the path."
--Scot McKnight, Northern Seminary, Lombard, IL
"The confidence that is proper to a Christian 'is not the confidence of one who claims possession of demonstrable and indubitable knowledge. It is the confidence of one who had heard and answered the call that comes from God, through whom and for whom all things are made: "Follow me"' (Lesslie Newbigin). In An Uncertain Certainty, Graham Buxton admirably captures this conviction in a compelling and entertaining fashion that has the potential to change the way we in the church think about ministry."
--John R. Franke, from the foreword
"Graham Buxton is earthed in everyday ministry, life, and politics, and it is in that context that he inspires theological thinking of the highest quality. Both thoroughly biblical and thoroughly sensitive to contemporary culture, here you will find both grace and truth."
--David Wilkinson, St. John's College, Durham University, Durham, UK
