Permission To Doubt by Ann C. Sullivan ~ Book Review

Ann C. Sullivan has challenged and encouraged thousands of women as an international speaker. In her first book, Permission to Doubt, she offers a candid look at when her faith and reason collided.
 Through a thirteen-year struggle with an undiagnosed panic disorder, Ann learned several valuable lessons: Never shy away from the big questions. Always follow the evidence to its logical conclusion. And genuine truth doesn’t buckle under the bright lights of interrogation.

Ann uses these lessons to help readers recognize doubt and also shares unique step-by-step solutions in which faith can be reinforced in the midst of our struggle. Using personal examples and an intensely practical approach, Permission to Doubt informs, challenges, and encourages those who’d like to take their faith a little deeper. It’s an honest look at what faith is—where it comes from, how it’s threatened, and how it can be strengthened.

My Thoughts

Permission To Doubt  weaves the author’s revelation into her testimony as she struggles with a panic disorder, and its challenges to her faith in God, as His child.  As one who traveled this road of illness for a couple decades, I understood this spiritual struggle of doubt in God who has the power to heal in a second, yet allows physical pain in His children.  

The author clearly shows that this doubt is actually an opportunity for God to reveal Himself in all glory and power as He increases your faith through slow healing, bringing your trial into a testimony.  Although the audience for this book would interest all who desire to know about God in a greater way, I believe it will greatly bless those who are struggling with an illness or situation that has placed them in a hopeless position.
