In his book, “A Conversation With God,” Alton Gansky sets out to answer the many simplistic questions formulated by the recently saved but also tackles, for the staunch Christians, those questions that roll about the mind, frequently searching for the truth of God.
Everyone seeks answers to questions in regard to the faith, but many of our questions must remain unanswered, for this is the divine will of God. The premise of this book, the basic idea behind its existence, is to answer these difficult to understand questions as well as the others that might be obvious through a little scripture searching on our own.
This idea, this concept of sharing the truth of God’s Word, is admirable, but personally I find the manner in which Alton goes about answering these questions to be, shall we say, questionable. We have all wondered what God would say as He gave answer to our queries, but to place words into the mouth of God comes close to disrespecting the Creator.
Not only are some questions answered as if they were from the vocals of God, others are brought forth as if the answers were from the likes of Jesus, Paul, Peter, Joshua, and Jeremiah, as well as numerous others.
Although many of the questions were very valid in their presence, I feel the manner in which they were answered should have been completely different.
All in all, this book was, shall I say, an interesting read but not recommended unless after reading this review your curiosity has gotten the best of you.
