    Regarding the question of uncertainty let me suggest a good book that
    comes out of the American evangelical tradition and has recently been
    republished by IVP. Daniel Taylor's THE MYTH OF CERTAINTY: The Reflective
    Christian $ the risk of commitment takes the subject on in a gentle,
    winning way. I have used it with great profit in some of my discussion
    groups with faculty and graduates.
