Straightforward answers to questions Christians and skeptics alike ask about God and the Bible

Let's 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.

Overview

Straightforward answers to questions Christians and skeptics alike ask about God and the Bible

Let's 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 when opinions of Bible experts clash. Stephen M. Miller pulls insight 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 cheek, why aren't more Christians pacifists?

    Stephen M Miller is a Great Communicator. Many people write book

    Stephen M Miller is a Great Communicator.
    Many people write books but Stephen communicates. Stephen uses his background in journalism and studies in theology to communicate truths in language that is not “heady”!
    In his book, “100 Tough Questions about God and the Bible”, that is just exactly what he does. Takes theological questions and lays them before the reader engagingly so that not only is he able to keep the attention of the reader, but also to lay out some thought provoking answers for us to grapple with.
    I wished that I had this book when I was a young director of a youth ministry! Every person who is involved with young people and also in Evangelism and the thinking mind will appreciate this book, even though it’s not a text book for an Apologetics class in Seminary.
    This book is also a resource for those who are in preaching, as a resource for added information, to help in their narrative preaching!
    Stephen M Miller does justice to the questions with his “investigative reporting”! It is a great resource book!

    100 Tough Questions about God and the Bible is an interesting re

    100 Tough Questions about God and the Bible is an interesting read. Some of the answers to the questions were told by what scholars say, what historical documents have told and some were just pure speculation. There is some slight humor to make the book flow. I read this book in one day. I did found it to be fascinating. It made me want to go pick up my Bible to learn more to some of the stories that were being questioned, which I believe was the author's intent to get more interested in the Bible.
    4 1/2 stars.

    100 TOUGH QUESTION About God and the Bible By Stephen M. Miller

    100 TOUGH QUESTION
    About God and the Bible
    By Stephen M. Miller
    We all have questions when it comes to God and the Bible, but you will most likely not find the answers in this book. The author explains that he is not a preacher that he graduated from seminary school but continued to be a news journalist. He says he has investigated information from scholars and beliefs to find answers to these questions. He does offer a variety of information, some of it is scripture verses, to most questions, but does not give a set answer. You are to choose the answer you think is right, rather like multiple choose. In my opinion, the idea for the book is good and the material been presented better. The selection of answers, he offers, will get your mind working but you will need a good understanding of the Bible and help from the Holy Spirit to come up with the right answer. The book is not really for someone who is searching for the truth, without any understanding of God's word.
    Some of the answers offered seem to be nothing more then someones, not the authors, fictional ideas. My opinion is if you want a truthful answer to questions about God and the Bible, there are other books that do a better job answering them.
    I received this book free from Bethany House for purpose of this review, I was not required to write a positive review, the opinions I have expressed are my own.
