Honestly I received this book a long time ago. Way too long ago to not have already posted a review. This book was not as satisfying as I had thought it would be. In my hunger for more and more information I could gleam about God I thought this would be a great resource. This book is set up as question/answer type of book using first person response – with God and other key Bible characters.
I did find this book somewhat hard to read from beginning to end, but the author even suggested skipping around. Since there are 55 chapters and each chapter is a different question/answer, there is a lot of covered material. It was hard to adjust to the first person platform, the fact that the author was speaking for God and many of the other Bible characters was a little awkward. Also the answers, at times, fluctuated back and forth between the same two people causing more confusion.
The book posed questions such as: why there is so much pain and suffering the world, what is heaven like, and is there really such a place as hell. These questions and more I thought were very relevant and often asked. Each answer was drawn from the Bible and most answers had scripture references, but all the references were in the back of the book. It would have been so much more convenient to have the references built into the chapters themselves.
Would I recommend reading this book? That’s actually not easy to answer! Yes I would if you are just starting to learn the Bible and if you are comfortable reading this book from the first person response. Also, if you are looking for more of discussion or reference book – I believe it would fit in well with those categories.
