Flavors of Faith

When we first become a Christian, we all start out with a simple, child-like faith just like pure, sweet vanilla ice cream. Over time we add other little bits of ideas into that simple faith. Some of those bits are good and add to our understanding and depth of faith; other ideas are toxic and strangle our faith. Flavors of Faith shares the author's journey of sorting out ...more

Flavors of Faith by Tom Heil was a book about a man's journey in faith that had lots of good meat in it, but was encased with fluffy thoughts and perfume.

Before I explain that thought, I need to explain a little of where I'm coming from. I was raised Catholic and became a born again Christian in college. I fell away from my faith when I got angry at God when my husband and I struggled with infertility. I've started coming back to God slowly, but the older I get, I find myself drawn more to my f
Tom Heil takes the reader into a sense of what flavor, or type of faith you are in, and many have shared or thought similar feelings that the author writes. It is an easy, simple, today kind of read--conversational and engaging as if we were sitting drinking coffee or tea to talk about what kinds of faith we have.

Scared faith taught me how we view God. Do we see him as the Creator who watches our every move and will judge us accordingly, which scares the living crap out of most of us. Heil show
Anytime I read a book I ask myself, “who could I recommend this book to?” Since I work with college students I am always on the lookout for books I could pass on to them. My friend Tom Heil’s book, Flavors of Faith, is perhaps one of the best books for college students, and teenagers, that I have read.

Flavors of Faith by Tom Heil was a pleasant surprise. It was a refreshing departure from the normal books on faith. It was lighthearted in places, and charming. The writer took me places I had not considered previously. It restored my faith, truly restored it.

I enjoyed the opening scenario of faith being compared to flavors of ice cream. How we, as human,s choose and take the parts we are comfortable with. But, faith is believing in the not-knowing. Ultimately, that is the message from the auth

This book had all the elements of an enjoyable read. It was lighthearted yet thought provoking. Throughout the book IS felt as if I was walking along side the author as he discovered new areas in his walk with God. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone questioning their walk or would just like to understand it better. (In fact I already have:) )

Like most people Tom Heil has been on a life journey with many twists and turns. He was born in a small town in rural Ohio before moving to the big city to attend the University of Toledo. At University he studied Computer Science and Engineering, a new field at the time, and was very active in church and campus ministry.
