“So many people of faith are afraid and ashamed of doubt. I’m thankful that in this book, Dominic gives us permission to wrestle with God and life’s hardest questions. He encourages us to walk through our doubt in order to find a deeper and richer faith on the other side.”

PHIL WICKHAM

Singer, Songwriter

When Faith Fails is a good reminder that we are all vulnerable and our faith fails easily because we look for quick answers on our time line, forgetting God has his own timing. I want to encourage people to read this book, especially if they have doubts and questions that can only be answered by God.”

SISTER ROSEMARY NYIRUMBE

director of Saint Monica Girls' Tailoring Centre in Gulu, Uganda, nominee for a Noble Peace Prize, and one of TIME's 100 Most Influential People of 2014

“Dominic hit the nail on the head in this amazing read. This is a book that all should gravitate to. We all—even believers—have seasons in life where our faith dwindles but this book is a reminder that we are not walking alone. If we just continue to tap into God’s glorious power, he will lift us up in due time!”

BRANDIN COOKS

wide receiver for the Los Angeles Rams

“Doubt is an inevitable part of the Christian journey. Sadly, for many it can end up derailing their faith altogether. Combining personal experience, theological depth, and the heart of a pastor, Dominic Done has written an essential guide for navigating doubt. When Faith Fails is, quite simply, excellent.”

JUSTIN BRIERLEY

host of the Unbelievable? show and author of Unbelievable? Why, After Ten Years of Talking to Atheists, I'm Still a Christian

“This book is one of those books that I will be buying to give to multiple friends. It answers and encourages so brilliantly the questions many of us have and wrestle with in regard to doubt. I’m thankful for Dominic sharing his story, wisdom, and hard-fought truths with us and the rest of the world!”

JEFFERSON BETHKE

New York Times bestselling author of Jesus > Religion

"Dominic is the type of soul who understands the questions of the heart. He never shames. He’s always transparent. He gives substantive hope. You will find yourself trusting him as he shepherds you on three important elements: relationship, intimacy, and trust. I do not doubt you will love this book!”

EMERSON EGGERICHS

New York Times bestselling author of Love & Respect

“This is the best book on doubt I’ve ever read. Dominic is a trustworthy guide, who’s walked this haunting valley of doubt’s shadow himself, and emerged with wisdom, insight—and humorous wit—on how to traverse its trail. When Faith Fails reveals that doubt is not the opposite or enemy of faith, but rather an opportunity to enter more deeply into God’s faithfulness to us.”

JOSHUA RYAN BUTLER

pastor of Redemption Church, and author of The Skeletons in God's Closet and The Pusuing God

“This book will help you surrender and trust the areas of your life that are meant to exude God-designed mystery, while also holding your hand as you search for substance and truth.  This book is for anyone who wants to discover more of God and live a life of unshakable faith."

AUDREY ROLOFF

founder of Always More, cofounder of Beating50Percent, and coauthor of A Love Letter Life

“Dominic helps us not to feel afraid of our finitude, ashamed of our doubt, or alone with our questions. This book is intelligent, well-written, and will be a real help to those going through the mill of doubt—and those who seek to support them."

MICHAEL LLOYD

principal of Wycliffe Hall, University of Oxford

From the foreword...

"This book is for those of us who have experienced a gut check, or two, when it comes to some of the intersections between our lives and our faith. It’s for those of us who no longer want to add unnecessary explanations to our beliefs just because we can’t fully see what God is doing in our lives."

-BOB GOFF

How do you deal with the hard questions about God, the church, and the Bible? Where can you find a safe place to openly and honestly wrestle with your faith without being criticized or judged? If you have ever struggled with doubt, you are not alone.

Writing with humor and candor out of his own experiences, and incorporating Scripture, literature, and accounts of others who have doubted, Dominic Done argues that not only is questioning normal, it is often a path toward a rich and vibrant faith.

Whether your struggle is with tragedy, the difficult parts of the Bible, the intersection of science and faith, or even God’s silence, you can move through doubt into a deeper, fuller faith—a faith that doesn’t run from questions and the hard work of honest wrestling but instead embraces the mysteries of belief.
