I (Still) Believe by John Byron and Joel N. Lohr, eds.

★★★★ ☐ The publisher has provided a copy for review.
How does research and biblical scholarship affect the faith of famous academics? Often, we assume that studying about God will undermine our relationship with God. But is God big enough to handle serious questions? Can he be examined and shown more marvelous and mysterious than anticipated? Can belief remain strong when the queries are intense and the quest to know is fierce?

The editors ask well-known researchers why they went into biblical scholarship, whether their faith was threatened or enhanced by their studies, and how their lives in the community of faith (Church) has been affected by their findings.

If you study theology, you'll recognize the names: Walter Brueggeman, James Dunn, Gordon Fee, Andrew Lincoln, Bruce Waltke, and more. Come meet them up close and personal ... and be prepared to be inspired and challenged. I was.
