Product Description

"DO YOU TRULY LOVE ME?" is only one of the questions Jesus asks.

When Jesus asked a question, the answer was seldom easy and often life-changing. These eight questions, from "Why are you so afraid?" to "Do you truly love Me?" will challenge anyone who is willing to answer. Each chapter engages and encourages the reader to think and see how much more there is to be found in a deep relationship with the Savior.

Publisher's Description

This book addresses 8 key questions that God is helping define for our life. It’s not a book on answers. Rather it’s 8 key topics that will cause readers to seek out: Direction in guiding us through pivotal life stages. Providing security. Avoid hitting rock bottom. God’s overall plan for my
life and other key issues that drive our focus and attention. 8 Questions Only You Can Answer is the counter balance to society’s answers on how to live, current conditions, and how to live and how to get through life especially when we don’t know where to turn or more importantly how to
get through it—whether the normalcy of life or extreme challenges stretch us beyond what can handle.

    "Dare to Answer" by John Busaker is one of those books that immediately sets you off in the wrong direction.

    You read something it in and you think "This would be great for so-and-so, she really needs this."

    The author describes two doors. Behind the first one are fifteen things that are not pretty, and we can easily fool ourselves into thinking "Nope, that's not me." Door number two hides nine aspects, all God-inspired, which we could all enjoy more of with some time and care.

    This could be considered a self-help book. It's easy going and at the end of each question/chapter there are a couple of Scriptures to examine and a couple personal challenges to address.

    It is designed to deepen your faith, with the author realizing that this takes time and patience. I liked it, and now am going to look through it again for the referenced Scriptures.

    It's a hardcover book, small in size, and would make a good travel companion.

    Thank you to Worthy Publishing for providing me with a review copy.

    Questions have a way of getting under our skin. They engage us and stimulate discussion where a statement would simply fall flat. Writer, speaker, and entrepreneur John Busaker has chosen eight questions that came directly from the mind and mouth of Jesus Christ as recorded in the Gospels, and in Dare to Answer, he challenges his readers to turn the questions laser focus toward their own hearts. The Biblical text serves as the starting point for each chapter, and at the conclusion Busacker has provided Reflect and Respond activities, making the book suitable for Bible study groups, youth meetings, and one-on-one mentoring, as well as individual study.

    In his examination of the questions, John Busacker demonstrates that a superficial answer is as dangerous as no answer at all. We must weigh in for ourselves on all eight questions, clarifying our desires, facing our fears, embracing our new identity in Christ, and moving forward into His love.

    Johns style is crisp and to-the-point with plenty of bullet points giving Scriptural evidence to support his thinking and with the creative use of dictionary materials for word analysis. Then, he slows down the pace with narrative accounts of personal experiences or relationships which have impacted his own story.

    The chart below is an overview of the questions and the structure of the book:

    The Question Biblical Scenario The Essence Clarification

    What do you want? John 1:35-38 A Question of Desire Do you have a sense that something deep inside is missing?

    Why are you so afraid? Mark 4:35-40 A Question of Fear When God is preparing to accomplish something great through His people, He always calls them to risk.

    Do you want to get well? John 5:1-6 A Question about Wholeness Are you ready for a radical redirection in your life? A new state of being?

    What is your name? Luke 8:26-30 The Question of Identity We need to hear God call us by our true name, Jesus-follower.

    Do you see this woman? Luke 7:36-44 The Question of Forgiveness The spiritual reality is that 100% of us have to file for personal bankruptcy with God.

    How many loaves do you have? Mark 6:35-38 A Question about Wealth Money can either be a significant impediment or powerful accelerant to our intimacy with God.

    Will you give me a drink? John 4:1-7 The Question of Generosity Let my heart be broken with the things that break the heart of God.

    Do you truly love me? John 21:15-17 The Question of Love Are we prepared to move from a deep friendship or even a familial love to total devotion to our Creator?

    Dare to Answer poked and prodded me into asking myself the penetrating questions Jesus posed during His earthly ministry. John throws down a challenge at the end of each chapter: to devote a month to the process of living your way into each of the questions. I recommend keeping a journal to document this process, recording answers that bubble to the surface during the project, and taking notes on the supplementary Scripture passages. When I was a teen, my mentor and friend bought two copies of a book, two notebooks in robins egg blue, and then challenged me to read, journal, pray, and explore my way through that topic. The process was life-changing. Dare to Answer is that kind of book.

    This book was provided by Worthy Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
