Book Review: 100 Tough Questions about God and the Bible

Questions about God and the Bible 100 Stephen M. Miller
100 Tough Questions
About God and the Bible
By Stephen M. Miller

Straightforward answers to questions Christians and skeptics alike ask about God and the Bible. Lets be honest - the Bible can be hard to understand. It's full of weird laws, apparent inconsistencies and tales of a God who often doesn't do what we expect. You may have asked about some of these things and been brushed off or given trite, unconvincing answers. But serious questions deserve thoughtful responses, especially from a wide range of Bible experts to report their answers to the tough questions. He does so with a touch of humor and no preaching allowing you to draw your own conclusions.

Questions include 

  • Would a loving God really put a good man like Job through horrible suffering just to test his loyalty?
  • If God knows everything why did he test Abraham's faith by asking him to sacrifice his own son?
  • How could there be just one God, yet three?
  • Since Jesus told people to turn the other check why aren't more Christians pacifists?
Stephen M. Miller is an award-winning bestselling Christian author who specializes in easy reading Bible reference books.

I think a lot of people have questions, a lot of them about the bible. I mean I've reviewed Straight Answers to 21 Questions about Prayer which is a whole book devoted to how to talk to God. I love all the questions 100 of them that are provided with direct answers. Not your typical, trying to keep from stepping on toes answer that doesn't really mean a thing. 100 Tough Questions is easy to read and has a few questions that I myself was asking, and some questions I found out after reading I wanted the answer to. If you liked a Woman's Guide to Hearing God's Voice I think you'd like this book too.
