Product Description

Doubt and questions aren't the enemy of a strong faith in God. In fact, seeking answers to hard questions is a very good way to strengthen your faith. Danielle D'Souza isn't afraid to enter into some of the more difficult discussions about Jesus, the Bible, hell, politics, evolution and other religions-and she invites you to join the conversation right along with her. Whether you're a believer, a skeptic or someone in between, you will be stimulated by the intellectual and spiritual challenge of thinking through more than 30 perfectly reasonable questions such as:
  • Is the Bible literally true?
  • Did the resurrection really happen
  • Why do people become atheists?
  • Do Jews, Muslims, and Hindus go to heaven?
  • How do we know what comes after death?
  • Are miracles really possible?
  • Is America a "Christian nation"?
  • Were Adam and Eve real people?
  • Is science at war with religion?
  • How do we know that we have souls?
  • What's wrong with homosexuality?
  • Why does God appear to some people but not everyone?
Asking questions such as these is the key to a robust faith journey, because the quest for answers may just lead you to a deeper, more dynamic trust in God.

Publisher's Description

"Faith is a dynamic thing, a lively thing, of asking questions and finding answers." - Danielle D’Souza
In Y God, Danielle D’Souza addresses 32 of the most interesting and pressing questions being asked about God by believers and skeptics alike. Rather than coming across as having all the answers, Danielle puts her ideas in the form of a conversation. Yet at her core she has convictions that come from a faith rooted in her heart as well as her head. Y God will appeal to millennials (the Y generation) and anyone who has ever had doubts about the biblical story of God. Some of the questions include:
Is faith reasonable?                       Are miracles really possible?
Is the Bible literally true?               Is God the author of morality?
Are other religions false?              Is America a "Christian nation"?
Does anyone deserve hell?         Why do people become atheists?
Is science at war with religion?   Is evolution compatible with the Bible?
If Jesus did exist, who was he?  How would Christianity change my life?

Author Bio

Danielle D’Souza | San Diego, CA

Danielle D’Souza, the daughter of Dinesh D’Souza, attends Bishop’s School in La Jolla. She is a straight-A student who likes reading, modern dance, travel and playing with her dog Bella. She is active in her school chapel program and attends Horizon North County, a Calvary Chapel church in the San Diego area. This is her first book.

Publishers Weekly

How does a teenager write a book? With tweets from readers, URLs in place of journal citations, and phrases like "IDK and IDC." In her debut book, high schooler D'Souza (daughter of embattled author Dinesh D'Souza) uses these elements to address 32 questions about Christianity. From free will to whether America is a Christian nation, D'Souza tackles complex issues succinctly and with a fresh, blog-like style. The book lacks a preface, which could have explained why the author chose those particular questions. Further, the source material (e.g., Wikipedia and Yahoo! Answers) is questionable, particularly in a book calling for factual answers to life's biggest questions. But what could be more relevant than a high school student explaining creationism versus evolution to other high school kids by using YouTube as a reference? D'Souza might not give older writers a run for their money when it comes to research, but her book will certainly show that young people do care about matters of faith and can address them fearlessly. (Oct. 11) 2012 Reed Business Information

Editorial Reviews

It’s now quite obvious that the amazing Dinesh D’Souza has in fact learned all that he knows from his brilliant daughter, Danielle! So, if you want the real thing, straight from the source, why not skip the middleman and read this book? Seriously, if you have a teenager, you must get this! Tremendous.

Sparing young readers the burdens of theological and doctrinal subtlety, Danielle D’Souza provides sound and instructive glosses on the very foundations of Christianity. Along the way, she liberates young readers from the chains of ignorant prejudice and "selective" histories as she locates the central place of Christianity in the forging and preservation of western civilization.

 Danielle D’Souza certainly did not fall far from the tree—her first book foreshadows a vocation as a writer and thinker who is both precocious and influential. Her achievement here is to create reasoned responses to difficult criticisms of Christianity that are often thrown at young people today and to translate them into "teenagerese." My own teenage granddaughter verified for me the aptness of the translation, and its range and depth impressed her—no easy thing to do, I have found. Michael Novak
