Many believers have seasons of doubt. But can you question your faith without losing it? Ed Stetzer sits down with pastor and author A.J. Swoboda who says doubt is a natural part of our spiritual journey, and the local church must walk alongside those who are deconstructing their faith and show them how to reconstruct it.
Dr. A. J. Swoboda is a pastor, professor, and writer. For nearly ten years, he served as a college pastor on the campus of the University of Oregon. Then planted and pastored a missional church in urban Portland, Oregon called Theophilus. Currently, he is the Assistant Professor of Bible, theology, and world Christianity at Bushnell University. He also leads a Doctor of Ministry program around the Holy Spirit and Leadership at Fuller Seminary and has taught at Multnomah University, London School of Theology, LIFE Pacific, and Southeastern University. He is the author of ten books, including After Doubt. He is also the co-host of the “In Faith and Doubt” podcast with New Testament scholar Dr. Nijay Gupta that reaches thousands each week.
Ed Stetzer wears a lot of hats—author, speaker, researcher, pastor, church planter—as he helps Christians learn to share Christ. Ed has earned two master’s degrees and two doctorates, and has written or co-written a dozen books and hundreds of articles. Now he ministers as interim pastor of The Moody Church, teaches at Wheaton College, and serves as executive director of the Billy Graham Center and a regional director of Lausanne North America. Ed and his wife, Donna, have been married more than 25 years and have three daughters.
