Description

Who doesn’t have questions about God? But where in the world can you go to get answers? 

Eric Metaxas has been there, so he gets it. Which is why he’s written this shockingly down-to-earth book on the big questions everyone asks (but not always out loud).

Totally conversational and sometimes flat-out hilarious, this book asks:

* 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?
* Isn’t God too busy running the universe to care about the details of my day?

These questions (and many more) get no-nonsense answers that don’t hide behind dull theological language. So get the lowdown (and more than a few laughs) on what are probably the most important questions anyone has.

    By Macinlover
    This book basically uses the Watch Maker argument by William Paley, to justify belief in a deity, when there are many known cases of things that looked design in nature, that we know are caused by natural processes. One of the first questions that should pop into any thinking mind, when the claim is made that complexity can only arise from greater complexity, is who created god? The evolution of life, on the other hand, starts from the simple and works toward the complex, which means it needs no designer. We know natural processes are quite capable of creating new life forms. To suggest that a loving god is responsible for life, begs the question of why at least 250 million children died of smallpox in the 20th century alone. It makes perfect sense that we would see diseases like small pox, and malaria, which are indiscriminate killers, if life forms are evolving, but no sense when claiming they are the work of a loving deity.
