Confidence in God (13014)

SKU: 13014
  • Confidence building has become the hottest pursuit of our times. A wild variety of means is being tried, only to invite ever new methods. They all show drastic shortcomings. For that reason alone it may be worth taking a new and serious look at the question whether one can have confidence in God. God has always been a mysterious being, but he is especially so in a post-Christian age that has become oblivious to the fact of Christ in whom God has become a most concrete being. And so did confidence which it was the purpose of Christ's life on earth to build and perpetuate. Such is the topic of the first chapter. Christ achieved the building of that confidence by undergoing a baptism, his death, so that by rising from the death, he may assure all those who are baptized that they, too, can cope with death, this greatest threat to human confidence. This is why baptism has become the foremost treasure of the Church, as shown in the second chapter. The third chapter is about the saints as so many models of unshaken confidence in God.
