By Searching: My Journey Through Doubt Into Faith Reviews
This is a great autobiography of a young woman through her university years at the University of British Columbia to Moody Bible Institute to candidate with China Inland Mission to her departure for China as a missionary with CIM. It starts out with her questioning the faith with which she had grown up, but never really accepted for herself, when a university professor started describing the myths of Genesis. She decided she was an agnostic, and went all the way through the university that way, unaware of the Godly people who were praying for her soul. But she didn't have peace, and couldn't live with herself, and couldn't sleep, until one night when she was tempted to commit suicide, but couldn't do it, and instead, prayed to God for peace, and God gave her peace.
This book was loaned to me 12 years ago and I really really loved it... I was reminded of it again this year so I bought it, and once again was so encouraged and challenged as I read it. A real-life account of Isobel Kuhn, and it gives you such a big, encouraging picture of a God who cares about the little details in the life of His children.
An excellent story and a help in the face of discouragement. Her testimony of going through trials and keeping her faith is very helpful. Before I give it away I am going to read it again.
A must read for any Christian! And even for some non-Christians. This book is inspired and will touch your heart with its honesty. It answers many questions which you find in a searching heart, and honestly relays the struggles of the author and how she questioned her own faith, and reveals a God who is searching for our hearts. Beautiful in it's simplicity.
Great little read. Although this book was written in the 50s it grapples with many of the same issues we do today. I thought about the recent Christian movie, God's Not Dead. Isobel lost her faith while studying at university, only to be found by Christ and become a missionary.
I loved this book! It is fantastic! Very well written. I ordered the next book In the Arena to read next. I love to read missionary biographies, and this is one of the best . I will have my children read it too. Very inspirational!
Written in a simple, honest, humble way. I am encouraged by the testimony if a missionary three generations past. God was doing an amazing work in people's hearts at that time through simple people who taught the word and prayed. Lord, please give us such a work in our day.
