Who doesn’t have questions about God? But where in the world can you go to get answers?
Eric Metaxas has been there, so he gets it. Which is why he’s written this shockingly down-to-earth book on the big questions everyone asks (but not always out loud).
Totally conversational and sometimes flat-out hilarious, this book asks:
* How can a good God create a world that has evil and suffering?
* Is God anti-sex?
* Doesn’t science make God obsolete?
* What’s the real story on miracles?
* If God is everywhere, why go to church?
* Don’t we already have God within us?
* Isn’t God too busy running the universe to care about the details of my day?
These questions (and many more) get no-nonsense answers that don’t hide behind dull theological language. So get the lowdown (and more than a few laughs) on what are probably the most important questions anyone has.
There's an old conservative Christian saying, "God said it, I believe it and that settles it." Metaxas a New York humor and children's book writer doesn't use it, but employs that attitude in writing this cheeky question-and-answer book addressing the most common questions people have about God. Metaxas writes from an evangelical Christian perspective as he discusses the authority of the Bible, salvation and concepts such as heaven, hell, angels and demons. He admits early on that this book idea is "patently insane"; however, he "took a crack at" answering the kinds of questions he is asked all the time in his work as a writer and speaker. Without a doubt, Metaxas is a clever and straightforward writer, fielding jokes right and left before hitting the reader with the hard stuff. ("Q: What happens when you die? A: Well it depends, but typically the lawn goes unmowed for a while...") He then more seriously replies that we are either welcomed into God's presence in heaven or banished for eternity to hell. Metaxas gets high marks for wit but fails to explore the wide range of beliefs that devout Christians hold today.
