- The Searchers
- A Quest for Faith in the Valley of Doubt
- Joseph Loconte
- Thomas Nelson Publishers
Loconte analyzes every possible question and thought of two men who traveled from Jerusalem toward their home in Emmaus after the crucifixion of Jesus. They were disillusioned, confused and grieving. A stranger joins them and explains God’s mysterious, eternal plan to them, as revealed in the Old Testament. Only at dinner together is the identity of the stranger revealed, to the amazement of the men.
Loconte examines ancient and contemporary literature, art, history, architecture and the writings of historians, philosophers, biblical scholars and agnostics to show how the interactions of these men and the stranger apply to our live. He portrays the centuries old search for faith in the midst of doubt. The author includes movie themes and the evils of religion in his study.
His important message discusses ideas about who God is and how our understanding of the Godhead is impossibly limited and often flawed.
Loconte’s views will teach and encourage seekers for truth. The writing is clear, but necessarily somewhat academic so will appeal to intelligent readers.
