{Review} Finding Faith in Slow Motion by Damon J. Gray

Faith is neither static nor instantaneous. It is not something we stumble upon and instantly understand. Neither is it a monolithic, one-dimensional, singular entity that has but one face, one color, one fragrance. It is many-faceted, multi-dimensional, and appears differently depending on one's angle to the Son. 

In Finding Faith in Slow Motion, Damon Gray examines faith from myriad angles and
through gut-wrenching life experiences, as he asks regarding faith, "What is that stuff" Spanning the emotional gamut from laughter to tears, Gray challenges us to define our faith and redefine it, to look at it from a multitude of perspectives and define it again. 

The writing is intentionally evocative and playful, offering the reader the ability to identify with Gray as he wrestles with the weighty subject matter of finding faith.

Review :
Author Damon J. Gray's book, Finding Faith in Slow Motion is full of ideas on how to explore all levels of faith.  As he takes us step by step through our growth in our faith and belief in God. Damon examines faith from many angles and through real life experiences, he asks, "What is Faith?" His writing is both evocative and playful as he leads the reader through the matter of finding faith.  I enjoyed reading through this book and how it constantly challenged me to re-examine my own walk with God.
