There are often difficult questions related to all sorts of issues and stories to be found in the Word of God that can sometimes leave us feeling lost. 100 Tough Questions about God and the Bible by Stephen M. Miller is a book likely to be used as a reference to shedding some light on issues often pondered upon by believers as well as non-believers. Do note, that some of the writing in this book is pure speculation and we can only know so much from what the Bible has to say and how scholars decipher it.
There are many questions here that I expected such as:
- Jesus said we shouldn’t judge one another, so why do Christians do it so much?
- Would a loving God really put a good man like Job through horrible suffering just to test his loyalty?
- Who should we believe about grounds for divorce?
- How could there be just one God, yet three?
Each of the questions the author discusses and backs up with scripture from the Bible. The author also quotes and pulls insights from a wide range of Bible experts. On average each question in answered on about 2-3 pages. Again,I would only recommend this book as a guide for a quick answer. It’s a great book to use to know where the scripture pertaining to the question and topic can be found in the Bible. I often find sometimes that a simple yet straight-forward answer among peers sometimes can be the best in leading you to draw your own conclusions.
The book is an easy read and I feel can leave the reader with more closure in an answer to their questions. The author’s writing is easy to read and it feels like he’s talking to a good friend. I would recommend checking out this book and you just might find an answer you are looking to learn about for yourself or to share with someone eager to know more.
