Prolific author and world traveler Daniel Taylor will present “Telling Stories to your Inner Atheist: Faith and Skepticism in a Postmodern World” at Whitworth on Nov. 1, at 7 p.m. in the Robinson Teaching Theatre in Weyerhaeuser Hall.
Taylor’s most recent book, “The Skeptical Believer: Telling Stories to Your Inner Atheist,” is about the inner skepticism that often accompanies faith, and working out useful responses to questions that have no definitive answers. The book steers a middle course between the modernist conviction that faith is an agreement with a set of statements about God and the postmodernist assertion that religious faith is just one story among many, no more or less true than any other, according to a press release.
In addition to teaching at Bethel for more than 30 years, Taylor is the author of 10 books, including “The Myth of Certainty”, “Letters to My Children” and “Tell Me a Story: The Life-Shaping Power of Our Stories, Creating a Spiritual Legacy.” He has also published essays, articles and short stories, has worked on a number of Bible translations, and speaks frequently on a variety of topics at conferences, colleges, retreats and churches.
This event is free and open to the public.
