About the Book:
When it comes to the big questions about God, Bruce Bickel and Stan Jantz don’t pretend to have all the answers. But they do know how to wrestle with doubt. They welcome questions, and in these pages they ask some of the most important ones you have about God and the Bible:
- Is God real? How can you know?
- Can I trust what the Bible says about God?
- Why is the Bible so hard to understand?
- Why do Christians say Jesus is the only way to God?
- How do God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit relate to one another?
- and more!
With candor, insight, and a disarming touch of humor, Bruce and Stan provide some answers to these critical questions, yet they leave enough space–and grace–for you to keep wrestling, asking, and seeking truth.
There is no shame in asking–after all, even some of the greatest men and women in the Bible had doubts. Don’t questions go unanswered. What you find might just change your life.
Answering the Toughest Questions about God and the Bible is a book that answers a lot of questions that not-Christians or new Christians may have about Christianity and God in particular.
The book answers several questions that are often asked, which I like. It also takes a comparatively takes a non-controversial route, and answers questions straight from the Bible, which is nice, because I can use some of the arguments more easily without needing to pick and choose.
The defense and the explanation for each of the questions are very well-researched and cohesive, which is very helpful if I ever need to use it. Each of the questions starts being answered by starting at a very basic level, which is helpful as well.
There are discussion questions at the end of each chapter, which allows for discussion and study in groups or by oneself.
Overall, I like this book, and recommend it for anyone who has questions about God and the Bible, or is looking for answers for someone who is questioning stuff like this.
