The way of inescapable doubt and its virtue

Exciting News!

I am very happy to announce that I’ve entered into an agreement with Wipf & Stock Publishers to publish The Certainty of Uncertainty. 

I’m really excited about working with a great publisher like Wipf & Stock, who have published such great scholars and theologians as John Howard Yoder and Walter Brueggemann. Wipf & Stock publishes titles in a wide range of topics including biblical studies, theology, ethics, church history, linguistics, history, classics, philosophy, preaching, and church ministry, which makes it a great home for The Certainty of Uncertainty, with its romance of theology, philosophy, and linguistics.

Watch this space for details on the forthcoming publication!

    I heard your interview on Interfaith Voices and can’t wait for the book! I would like to use it in an adult education class at my church (Episcopal) in Raleigh, NC. Do you have an estimate about when the book will be available? I wish you all the best!
