These two authors join forces to answer 10 tough questions based on biblical truth.
I was really attracted by the concept of this book, and I found very interesting that these authors got the top 10 questions by asking real people what their doubts were.
However, I thought I would find a different kind of approach. I expected the answers to be more skeptic-oriented, and it was like that at first, but at some point it changed. Some answers are so biblical that they require some trust in the Bible as the Word of God to find them relevant.
They do considerate people from all kinds of backgrounds, but I feel some chapters might be more helpful for Christians, seekers, or those returning to Faith.
Besides that, I must say I like how the authors understood the real question behind some questions. They went deeper in each case and gave answers based on what people really have in the heart.
I loved their illustrations and how they put in simple terms things that could be very complicated. I feel like they were friends trying hard to help me see truth.
I learned a lot, and I’m glad I read it.
**I received a copy of this book from Bethany House through Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own**
+ “Because he made us in his image, his personality is familiar”.
+ “God is not visible, but neither is he hiding”.
+ “He proposes that an ‘objective lawgiver’ must exist, not only because we know what is right and wrong, but also because we feel an obligation to do what is right”.
