1) It's honest. Brutally honest. It's essentially a book filled with his confessions - how much he doubts and how imperfect he is. We could all learn a lesson or two from his act of honesty.

2) More likely than not, you have struggled at some point in time with the same questions he struggles with. It's the perfect book to help you feel like you're not alone in your doubting. If you haven't, you're not being honest with yourself - so you should go back to reason number 1 to read it.

3) This is a story of someone who grew up in the Southern Baptist tradition and learned along the way the value of learning from other denominations. No one denomination is 100% right. Jason pulls from rich liturgical traditions to help him when the simple answer of "Jesus saves" isn't enough to hold him up. At the same time, he embraces the power that exists behind charismatic traditions. I love the way he pulls things from various denominational traditions to help him discover what he believes. If you think you are 100% right in all you do and your denomination or traditions are better than others, revert back to number 1 for why you should read this book.

4) If you're in full-time paid ministry, there are many people that you encounter that struggle with the same kinds of questions Jason struggles with. Whether you can identify with what he's saying or not, you should know how to relate to people who are where he is. And if you think you can't identify with what he's saying, then I point you back to number 1 for why you should read it.

5) He's incredibly intelligent. Jason will probably tell you that he's not that smart - but I would disagree. This book is a brilliant portrayal of how intellectual giants wrestle with doubt and yet still have faith. His most brilliant point: faith & doubt are not mutually exclusive. In fact, faith & doubt work hand in hand with one another. If we don't doubt, then there's no need for faith. When we intellectually can't understand something, that's when faith steps in. If you think you understand everything - well, then - I guess you're just stuck with reason number 1 to read this book.

I have always enjoyed Jason Boyett's writing. I became familiar with him when, on a whim, I picked up his "Pocket Guide To The Apocalypse". His good-natured sarcasm, combined with the fact that he takes the time to "know what he's talking about" had me at "Hello". Since then, I've read several of his other "Pocket Guides" and I follow his blog. When Boyett announced that he was releasing a new book with the provocative title, "O Me of Little Faith", it would be an understatement to say that I was interested in reading it.
Now that I've read it, I must confess that Jason Boyett has created a problem for me. On one hand, he seems to have unknowingly written his book about me. I am a confirmed doubter. For me, faith and doubt are like eternal dance partners. It seems to me that "faith" is more closely related to words like "trust", "confidence", "hope", "commitment", and has less to do with words like "certainty" or "convinced". I can't turn off the questions. I don't generally find books on apologetics helpful. I resonate with the man who cried out to Jesus "Lord, I do believe. Help my unbelief" in the gospel account. On the other hand, not everyone is like me. I've found that some people aren't given to such incessant questioning, and that the things that are issues for me aren't issues for them.
So here's my problem: Jason Boyett has written a beautiful, hopeful, gut-wrenchingly honest book for people like me. I can't even begin to tell you how refreshingly helpful it was, and how much life it breathed back into my faith. But, at the same time, I realize (as Boyett seems to) that for people who aren't like me, this book could be devastating. He doesn't shy away from hard questions, and he doesn't answer them. He doesn't defend the status-quo. He doesn't whitewash problems. He makes no attempt to win any debates. He speaks with poignant honesty as one who is deeply committed to hope. I can't recommend this book to every Christian I know. However, I know that I will, without hesitation direct my fellow faithful doubters to this beacon of hope. It is a well of living water that I will return to again and again.
