answering-the-toughest-questions-cover

Answering the Toughest Questions About God and the Bible, written by Bruce Bickel and Stan Jantz, published by Bethany House is a wonderful book.  Inspired by a letter posted by an ex-Christian who felt restricted and judged when it came to questioning matters of faith, the authors surveyed people to find out what questions people have about God and the Bible today.

The purpose of this book is to answer many of those questions brought forth by those people who are seeking a better understanding of their faith and to encourage Christians to be prepared to answer such questions from others. Some of the questions included in this book are: Is God real and how can you know? Why did God create us? Can I trust what the Bible says about God? Is Jesus God? and Why do Christians say Jesus is the only way to God?

This book very straightforward, informational and easy to read. One great aspect is expression of encouragement the authors extend to Christians to ask serious questions and also to be prepared to give answers to those seeking them.

This is a wonderful book for those who are questioning faith in God or the Bible, thus it is a recommended purchase.
