"We often think of Jesus as someone with all the answers. But over and over in scripture, he asks questions, seeking to engage with people and genuinely interested in their responses.
Matthew Croasmun challenges readers to consider this book as an experimentan opportunity to see whether God is real. He invites us to enter into conversation with Jesus by answering the questions Jesus asks in scripture. The goal is not to come up with what we think are the right answers but to respond honestly to Jesus questions.
Each chapter of this six-week study contains five readings. Each reading follows this format:
• A Bible passage with a question Jesus asks in bold type
• A short reflection designed to help you engage with Jesus question as he asked it in the Gospels and as he asks it of you now
• Space for you to continue the conversation with Jesus.
Written in a warm, encouraging style, this thought-provoking and imaginative book will certainly give readers entry points into conversation with God, and they may find themselves experiencing a deeper relationship with the divine than they ever thought possible.
What People Are Saying About Let Me Ask You a Question
"This beautiful book is an invitation into dialogue, disclosure, and true discipleship by Jesus himself through disarmingly honest questions. We hear Jesus ask surprising, death-defying, life-giving questions that offer transformation through a call to transparency. If, like me, you read this book for the first time in a coffee shop, dont be surprised if you find yourself seated by the Spirit in Jesus very presence, riveted as the deep places of your heart meet the depths of Gods love. Such an authentic, truth-telling encounter may cause you to answer him aloud. It did me."
Cherith Fee Nordling, Associate Professor of Theology at Northern Seminary
"Croasmun draws us into dialogue with the living Jesus, whose questions challenge us, encourage us, and ultimately lead us into lives of deeper faith."
Miroslav Volf, Henry B. Wright Professor of Systematic Theology at Yale Divinity School; Founding Director, Yale Center for Faith & Culture; and author of Free of Charge: Giving and Forgiving in a Culture Stripped of Grace
"Sadly, in our driven pursuit of answers today, we seem to have lost sight of the fact that perhaps what we really need to find are better questions. Matt skillfully leads us to those questions and sensitively encourages us to linger there. A timely book masterfully crafted!"
Gary Best, Author of Naturally Supernatural: God May Be Closer Than You Think
"This book makes a case for a Jesus who is alive and at work in the world, one who desires relationship and the sort of two-way conversation that flows from it. Let Me Ask You a Question paints a winsome picture of a totally real and unreligious Jesus, open to questions and ready for dialogue. What a breath of fresh air!"
Eleanor Mumford, Pastor, church planter,
and co-coordinator of the Vineyard International Executive
"Rather than a Jesus who is interested in our knowing the right answers, this book introduces us to Jesus who is more interested in a dialogue with us. So many have been afraid to move toward Jesus, and this book helps show how truly approachable he is."
Jay Pathak, Pastor of the Mile High Vineyard and coauthor of The Art of Neighboring
"Can you really talk to God? Is God really speaking back? Matt Croasmun invites us to the adventure of finding out if God talks. What a challenge to seekers and responders alike! A must read book for both Christians and agnostics."
Martin Bühlmann, Leader of the Vineyard movement
of churches in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland
"A book of questions. How refreshing! And not just any questions: Jesus questions. In a world quick to offer unsatisfying answers, youll cherish the chance, day by day, to see how Jesus questions can shape the questions you askand the answers you find. So grab
