Overview


We all have questions about Jesus, but very few of us get the answers we’re looking for—if the answers even exist! Do they? Where (in heaven’s name) do you go to find out? New York Times bestselling author Eric Metaxas understands how hard it can be to get hard truths, and that’s why he is writing this hilarious, entertaining guide to the most influential single Person to have ever lived on the face of the earth. Like his previous books in this style, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About God is a book that takes questions about the Son of God seriously enough to get silly- where appropriate. Metaxas covers questions about Jesus’ life -Did He live at all?-, His death -If He truly was the Son of God, why did He have to die?-, His resurrection -Did Jesus really come back after death?-, and much more. Apologetics has never been so much fun!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

How anyone writes a book on God that reads like a can’t-put-it-down thriller is a miracle itself. Metaxas doesn’t just knock my socks off—he knocks my robe off!
JUDGE JEANINE PIRRO
Former Westchester County D.A., host of the nationally syndicated Judge Jeanine Pirro television program

 

 

Quick, witty, engaging and often profound . . . vintage Metaxas. Good and profitable reading.
CHUCK COLSON
Founder of Prison Fellowship, Author of How Now Shall We Live
 

The difficulty is not to gush. Eric has written a wise, funny, and disarming book, one that will, I’m sure, be handed around dorms, churches and anywhere smart, curious people (both believers and unbelievers) can get their hands on it.
TIM KELLER
Author of the New York Times bestselling The Reason for God
Finally, a book of apologetics that you can give to your friends without cringing!
LAUREN WINNER
Author of Girl Meets God

An excellent primer on the most important questions of life, engagingly presented in question-and-answer format. A timely and useful book for a searching, spiritually hungry America.
GEORGE GALLUP, JR.
Founding Chairman of the George H. Gallup International Institute
