Many of us find ourselves battling for our faith, with doubts infecting our lives. Others are content with a minimalist faith. Some just don’t know what it means to believe, equating faith with a blind leap into the dark unknown. Faith is the foundation of the Christian life. If we don’t know how to believe, what we believe will suffer greatly. The material presented in this book is not rocket science. It is not only for the seminarian. It is not just for those who have been Christians for a long time. This is discipleship 101. Join Michael Patton as he shares his experiences and expertise, working through the difficulties of what it means to believe in Christ. Dissecting the Reformers’ three-part understanding of faith – Content, Conviction, and Consent – this book will put you on a biblical path to believing more today than you did yesterday.
Recommendation for C. Michael Patton, Increase My Faith:
As I began to read Michael Patton’s text Increase My Faith, I quickly grew intrigued. Then I found myself drawn into his carefully-delineated concepts regarding the nature of faith. I was especially intrigued by his repeated depictions of his “Belief-O-Meter”—what an original and helpful aide to illustrating these thoughts! Moreover, the practical implications of these thoughts for personal belief, handling one’s doubts, and so on that are found on almost every page combine to make this volume a very valuable resource.

Michael Patton has provided us with a rich, intelligent guide to faith. Besides the clarity of writing and practicality, the strength of the book resides in the very careful distinctions Patton makes, along with his identification of the real-life implications of those distinctions. This is an important book and I highly recommend it.

We live in days of doubt. The unrelenting barrage of skepticism and uncertainty has left many feeling like the man who cried out to Jesus, “I do believe; help my unbelief.” This book is a welcome, thoughtful answer to that age-old request. I have known Michael Patton for almost thirty years, and I can’t think of a more spiritually qualified person to write this book. His own faith has been severely tested and refined in the crucible of deeply trying times. I have watched his faith grow, and it has blessed my life.
Read this book to inform and increase your faith.
