Product Description

We all have questions about God. But very few of us get the answers we're looking for - if those answers even exist! Do they? Where (in heaven's name) do you go to find out?

Eric Metaxas understands. That's why he's written this refreshingly down-to-earth take on the big questions everyone asks (but not always out loud).

Finally a book that takes questions about God seriously enough to get silly (where appropriate). Wonderfully conversational and often very funny, this book joins you in wondering:

  • How can a good God create a world that has evil and suffering?
  • Is God anti-sex?
  • Doesn't science make God obsolete?
  • What's the real story on miracles?
  • If God is everywhere, why go to church?
  • Don't we already have God within us?
  • What does the Bible say about things like UFOs, ESP, and the afterlife - and what about Bigfoot?
  • These questions (and many more like them) get straight answers that don't hide behind dull and confusing theological language. So get the lowdown on the big questions everyone asksbut please try not to laugh (because it's a very serious topic).

Endorsements

"The difficulty is not to gush." - TIM KELLER, founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church and New York Times best-selling author of The Reason for God and The Prodigal God

"For his stylish and entertaining handling of this particular subject, Metaxas deserves a prize." - DICK CAVETT, Emmy Award–winning television personality

"I've always wished I could answer important and difficult questions about God with as much heart, humor, intelligence, and truth as Eric Metaxas does in this book. Now I can-by giving friends and family a copy of Eric's excellent book, which is itself an answer to the question 'Is God powerful enough to take a witty, Yale-educated, orthodox Christian logician and use him to make you laugh while simultaneously answering the most difficult questions and inspiring you to genuine faith in God?' The answer is yes!" - KIRK CAMERON, television and film actor and producer

"Like having a Starbucks with a very funny New York intellectual who happens to be a nonatheist. Oh! That would be Eric Metaxas!" - VICTORIA JACKSON, comedian, actress, and former cast member of Saturday Night Live

"Eric Metaxas beautifully opens conversations that many people avoid. The questions that he presents are honest and easily relatable for anyone. No matter what your current knowledge of God is, I highly recommend this book. It will make you laugh, challenge you to think, and provoke you to understand truth in a deeper way. Theology has never been so much fun!" - KRIS VALLOTTON, senior associate leader, Bethel Church, Redding, CA; cofounder of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry; author of The Supernatural Ways of Royalty and Spirit Wars

"How anyone writes a book on God that reads like a can't-put-it-down thriller is a miracle itself." - JUDGE JEANINE PIRRO, host of Justice with Judge Jeanine

"We are in the beginnings of a sudden shift, especially among millennials, to an interest in spiritual things. I like the fact that Eric writes simply but intelligently. Congratulations on staying relevant and caring enough about people to answer their questions." - CARTER C. CONLON, senior pastor, Times Square Church, New York City

"Eric Metaxas has written a book about God based on questions that people are actually asking. His answers are pithy, practical, often funny (who says God doesn't have a sense of humor?), and true. This is a splendidly unconventional introduction to the Christian faith." - JOHN WILSON, editor of Books & Culture

"Finally, a book of apologetics you can give your friends without cringing!" - LAUREN WINNER, author of Girl Meets God and Mudhouse Sabbath

"Every question in this book is one I have asked, have heard asked, or want to ask! And the answers are so good humored and easy to read that you almost forget how profound they are." - ANN B. DAVIS, Alice of The Brady Bunch

"Every question in this book is one I have asked, have heard asked, or want to ask! And the answers are so good humored and easy to read that you almost forget how profound they are."
—ANN B. DAVIS, Alice of The Brady Bunch

"I jotted down some basic questions before I began reading. I wanted to see if author Eric Metaxas would address my concerns. He did more than answer all my questions. He inspired me to rethink how I answer the uncomfortable questions. And he reminded me of the profound mystery that all questions don’t have an answer. Metaxas’ style, utilizing a question-and-answer format, is easy for readers to follow. The author’s humor draws readers into the story as the questioner pushes for deeper meaning. The dialogue continues until the answer is clear. Readers come away with a better understanding of who God is and who he isn’t. Metaxas makes clear just how serious he considers the topic of this book: "From where I stand, no subject under the sun is more important than the truth, but the subject of truth, especially as it concerns God, has fallen on hard times in our culture."

Topics from creation to the cross are covered in this inspiring book, as the author writes about common subjects including miracles, prayer, angels, demons and the afterlife. Metaxas also addresses difficult subjects—Islam, hell, gays, the role of women and the spiritual realm.

The author does a wonderful job engaging readers with thought-provoking questions. The book is divided into 20 chapters, each focusing on important issues, such as: "Why would a loving God allow suffering? How can you prove God’s existence?" Metaxas' blend of theology and biblical history supports his answers and reinforces the central event of the Christian faith—Jesus’ death on the cross. The author’s message is clearly threaded through out the pages of the book: It is Jesus’ grace toward us that allows us to go to heaven, and this grace is available to everyone."

    A "can't put down", easy to understand, entertaining book about God!

    Initially, I was attracted to the title, and had no idea what the book was all about. I'm glad I chose it because it was a "can't put down" read. I enjoyed it immensely. Actually, it is an apologetic book about the Christian Faith. It is written in a style that is entertaining, but serious at the same time, with intelligent answers. The book is in a Q & A style, which I would LOVE to be sitting down joining in the conversation! He references Scriptures, and He makes Theology fun and easy to understand. I would recommend this book to anyone, especially those who've had doubts or questions concerning God and Jesus Christ or just curious about spiritual things.

    I received this book from Blogging for books in exchange for an honest review, and honestly, I am so glad Eric wrote it, and Kudos to Waterbrook Press for publishing this book! I believe a lot of honest seekers will come to know God through this great book!
