Issler Interviewed in WORLD Magazine

    Posted by Admin on September 24, 2008

In an interview for the September 20th issue of WORLD magazine, Klaus Issler (joined by co-author J.P. Moreland) talked about his latest book, In Search of a Confident Faith: Overcoming Barriers to Trusting in God.

Marvin Olasky, editor of WORLD, asked about the four-step procedure for how to deal with doubts (explained in chapter 2 of the book).

In summary, Issler and Moreland's procedure runs like this:
  1. Identify the source of the doubt (e.g., evening news, movie, conversation at work).
  2. Identify the particular assumptions that stand under the source (example: if it can't be tested by the five senses, you can't believe in it).
  3. Raise doubts about the doubt. Challenge it (example: I can't see my own thoughts, but I know them, so why should I believe this principle?).
  4. Replace the assumption with a more biblical one (example: For thousands of years, the brightest people alive have known God was real from the creation even though they never saw Him, so we can, in fact, know things that go beyond our five senses).
