Answering the Toughest Questions About God and the Bible, by Bruce Bickel and Stan Jantz, 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.

This book was written to answer many of those questions and to encourage Christians to ask honest questions and 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?

I found this book very straightforward and informational. I especially appreciated the way the authors encourage people to ask questions and to be prepared to give answers. They are clear on the idea that it is totally acceptable to “keep wrestling, asking, and seeking truth.”

I would recommend this book to anyone questioning faith in God or the Bible and to anyone attempting to answer such questions from others.

I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
