Clear Winter Nights: A Journey into Truth, Doubt, and What Comes After By Trevin Wax Book Review


Clear Winter Nights is a novel that contains a story intertwined with Christian theology mixed in the plot. The main character, Chris is doubting his faith in God and what he actually truly believes. His college professor has contributed into his countless questions about is God really who He claims to be. He is also so torn that he calls off his engagement to fiancé, Ashley. He recently lost his grandmother and a few months later his grandfather, Gil has a stroke. He chose to move in with his grandfather to assist in his daily watch and care. His grandfather was also a pastor for many years. Gil and Chris debate and have major conversations about faith and God throughout the whole book.


I would recommend this brilliant book that enclosed theology throughout the story. I liked how Trevin Wax was very creative in presenting the message of Christianity. I immensely loved how he addressed many common questions that people have about having faith in God. I also loved the risky aspect of discussing homosexuality in the storyline and it was very eye-opening on how to still be friends if someone comes out. I also connected with the deep father wound that Chris had against his dad and I believe numerous people will be able to relate to. Overall, the book was a great read about someone who is doubting their faith in Christ and how they dealt with and overcame it. If you’re seeking a wonderful book on Christianity that is relevant in today’s times, then read this book!
