Publisher's Description

We live in a radically skeptical age. Tough questions are being asked about Christianity. And most believers are ill-equipped to provide the answers our culture and communities desperately need. Many in today’s church do not know the Bible as well as they should and they struggle with their own "big questions" about the faith.
After receiving more than four thousand questions at his Christian Thinkers Society events over the span of six years, Dr. Jeremiah Johnston began to recognize six categories of recurring, trending questions that dominated the rest. In Unanswered, he tackles these tough issues that plague the minds of believers but are rarely addressed in church, such as…
  • Why is it that God often seems to remain silent?
  • How can we trust in the bodily resurrection of Jesus, and what does it mean for us today?
  • What do Christians need to understand about suicide and mental illness?
  • How should Christians respond to spiritual darkness and the obsession with paranormal activity?
  • Why is biblical illiteracy so dangerous for Christians and the church?
  • Why do we experience suffering and pain?
 Unanswered will leave you enriched, characterized by a thinking faith, capable to communicate confidently, and committed to escape the tendency to offer trite answers to a skeptical world.

Publisher Summary

You cannot Google the answers to the probing questions in this book! People who investigate the Christian faith often stop short because they have searing questions that most believers simply cannot answer. Additionally, "de-conversions" - people leaving the church - are on the increase. The trigger point of their departure is often an unanswered question! International author, professor, and gifted teacher, Jeremiah Johnston, Ph.D., does not back away from the toughest questions, rather he provides you with solid, substantive answers. Unanswered gives you information, insight and confidence to help your friend or loved one discover God's divine tapestry for good in life's bleakest moments! You will discover priceless confidence and peace in your own circumstances through this critical book. Unanswered is that indispensable resource tool for your own study, small group or Bible study class you attend.

After receiving more than four thousand questions at his Christian Thinkers Society events, Dr. Jeremiah Johnston recognized six categories of recurring, trending questions. In Unanswered, he tackles these tough issues:

  • God on Mute: What Do I Do When God Is Silent?
  • Body of Proof: Why Can I Trust in the Bodily Resurrection of Jesus and How Does That Change Things Today?
  • My Invisible Disease: What Christians Must Understand About Suicide and Mental Health
  • Paranormalcy: Understanding Spiritual Darkness and the Paranormal Allure Among Christians and How to Escape It
  • Bible-ish Christianity: Why Most Christians Know Just Enough About the Bible to Be Dangerous
  • Becoming Job: Why Suffering, Me-Centric Christianity, and a Concierge-God Don't Mix

Unanswered will leave you enriched, characterized by a thinking faith, equipped to communicate confidently, and committed to escape the tendency of offering trite answers to a skeptical friend.

---Lee Strobel, Author, The Case for Christ and The Case for Faith

Editorial Reviews

This is a challenging time for Christians everywhere. I am very pleased that my good friend Jeremiah Johnston has written Unanswered: Lasting Truth for Trending Questions, an insightful book that will have a lasting impact on all readers. His spiritual insights make this a captivating and compelling book. You will be inspired by the truth and encouraged as you seek answers to unanswered questions in your life.
—Dr. Jay Alan Sekulow, Chief Counsel, American Center for Law & Justice

Dr. Johnston loves the truth and he loves people. In Unanswered, both come through clearly. He writes and communicates as a scholar with a keen mind, but also as a pastor with a compassionate heart. By God’s grace, Unanswered will "teach Christians to become thinkers and thinkers to become Christians."
—Eric Geiger, Vice President, LifeWay Christian Resources

"You have not because you ask not," said New Testament writer, James. "Your questions are not answered because you’ve not yet read Unanswered," said…me! In this fresh, intelligent book, Dr. Jeremiah Johnston (don’t let the "Dr." scare you; he writes in plain English) gives great responses to some of the most daunting spiritual questions we’re all curious about. My advice: 1.) Get this book (seriously, how many books do you know of that smartly discuss both the veracity of the Bible and vampires?); 2.) Read this book right away (it’s too important to put in the stack with all the other ones you want to read "some day"); 3.) Give copies of this book to people you know (some of whom are just a few good answers away from a confident faith in Christ).
—Mark Mittelberg, Best-selling author of The Questions Christians Hope No One Will Ask and Confident Faith, Executive Director, The Center for American Evangelism

Intriguing…stimulating…challenging. These words represent Dr. Jeremiah Johnston’s new book, Unanswered. It will definitely meet a huge need in today’s church. Not only will it answer questions for those seeking the truth, it will also encourage the communicators of God’s truth, giving them greater confidence in answering the current questions people are asking today.
—Dr. Ronnie Floyd, President, Southern Baptist Convention, Senior Pastor, Cross Church, Springdale, Arkansas

It is a pleasure to commend this lively and readable book. Some apologetics books are overly technical (and frankly, dull), and many fail to grapple with the current questions as framed by modern enquirers and sceptics. Not so Unanswered. Jeremiah Johnston writes with the heart of a pastor and the mind of a scholar. Unanswered questions—about silence, suicide, suffering, and Scripture, to name but a few—pose real problems for real people, which demand the care and compassion that this book provides. This book is accessible and credible; it is a delight to read, and I shall be giving copies away to friends who have wrestled with unanswered questions for years.
—Reverend Dr. Simon Vibert, Vice Principal, Director of the School of Preaching, Wycliffe Hall, University of Oxford

Unanswered is a brilliant showcase of Dr. Johnston’s tremendous mind and, more importantly, his love for people and the church. In it, he tackles some of Christianity’s toughest questions and gives readers, believers and nonbelievers alike, the answers they’ve sought. He is one of the brightest minds of our generation and I cannot recommend Unanswered more highly.
—Matthew Barnett, Cofounder, The Dream Center, Los Angeles, California, Author, The Church That Never Sleeps

I have the rare privilege of speaking to large groups of people globally. The one commonality that is reinforced with each speaking engagement is the need for Christians to be provided with answers to difficult life questions. Jeremiah Johnston’s book Unanswered, and the related teaching materials, provide answers to many perplexing questions. I have used Unanswered in group settings as well as in lectures. It is extremely well-researched and provides easy-to-understand, practical application to life’s most challenging struggles. Unanswered is a book for such a time as this. A must-read.
—Cary Summers, President, Museum of the Bible, Washington, DC
 

I commend to you this new and vastly important work. Having pastored and ministered for over three decades, I have found the questions upon which Johnston focuses to be real life points of concern. Combining Scripture, common sense, solid research, and a kind heart, Johnston masterfully presents a compelling case for the powerful ministry of our Lord in real life situations. Having been in a family that has experienced mental illness and suicide, I especially appreciate his balanced treatment to these issues. This will be an important addition in the field of apologetics and pastoral ministry.
—Frank Page, Ph.D., President and CEO, Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee
