(But Were Afraid To Ask)
By Eric Metaxas

OVERVIEW: 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. That's 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, book asks questions like, "How can a good God create a world that has evil and suffering? Is God anti-sex? What's the real story on miracles? and many more.

AUTHOR: Eric Metaxas is the best-selling author of several books, including Bonhoeffer, Amazing Grace, Miracles, Seven Men, Seven Women and If you Can Keep It. He is the host of The Eric Metaxas Show, a nationally syndicated daily radio program. Metaxas is also the founder and host of Socrates in the City, the acclaimed series of conversations on "life, God, and other small topics."He is a senior fellow and lecturer at large at the King's College in New York City, where he lives with his wife and daughter.

MY REVIEW: Author and Pastor, Timothy Keller says that it is difficult not to gush over this book. I agree. Starting with the first question, "How Can You Prove God's Existence?' to question number 20, "What Makes Conversion Real?'' Metaxas will hold your interest and satisfy your desire to understand things you always wanted to know about God. You may not have been afraid to ask but maybe you didn't know who to ask. Now you know. New York times best-selling author, Eric Metaxas give his answer to twenty difficult questions about God. I think you will be pleased, if not with all, most of his answers.

Editor of Books and Culture, John Wilson said, "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." I agree. I also like actor, Kirk Cameron's idea of giving Eric's excellent book to friends and family. I recommend we all do that.

(I received this book from Blogging For Books in exchange for a fair and honest review.)
