John writes with customary care and clarity about an often-neglected subject. I hope this pocket-sized anatomy of doubt will be a great reassurance to many.

Marcus Honeysett

Director of Living Leadership and author of Finding Joy and Meltdown

All Christians struggle with doubt from time to time. The Devil uses it to deprive us of our joy and to stop us serving Jesus wholeheartedly. This is an extremely practical little book that is great to read before doubts come, if you find yourself in the middle of them or if you want to help someone else who is struggling. Highly recommended

Martin Salter

Grace Community Church Bedford and editor of Foundation

Practical, pastoral, and rooted in Christ's work on the cross, and the Spirit's witness in our lives, this book lifts our eyes away from our own shortcomings, and up to what Christ has done for us and in us.
