    I give the book 3.5 stars. What I liked: It helps answer faith

    I give the book 3.5 stars.

    What I liked: It helps answer faith questions for teens and adults. I used it to answer questions that my 14 year old daughter had and also an adult friend.

    This book is a good resource, but not one that I could just pick up and read the whole way through. Instead, I've used it to look up specific hard questions. Each section title is a tough question followed by the answer, which is backed by Scripture.

    Some questions the books helps answer are:

    --Why do bad things happen to good people?

    --How can a loving God let people go to Hell?

    --Is Jesus real?

    What I didn’t like: The layout/flow in each section is annoying -- You get to reading about a tough question and then it is interrupted with a box of related text, so you have to skip the box to continue reading. The boxes interrupt the reader’s flow. The boxes have good information in them, but why stick them in the middle of text? It just makes reading harder and more confusing.

    Some of the author’s explanations are a little advanced and might not translate well to younger children.

    Overall: Good resource. I am glad I have it in my library because it has come in handy! I could only give it 3.5 stars, though, because of flow.

    This easy to read book is the perfect apologetic book for parents, young adults and all readers alike. Written in a simple question and answer format this books presents some of the most challenging philosophical, spiritual and even science based questions that are asked by young people and adults alike. The answers presented are thourough yet easy to understand. This book is an essential tool for anyone who wishes to share their faith or defend their faith. This is a much needed book for today's generation of believers and secular readers alike. As a blogger, I won this book from an online contest from Tyndale.

    The Book as a Whole and the Author
    Alex McFarland is a well-known author with Focus on the Family. I have heard his names plenty of times around my home church. This book was a little unsuitable for me, as I don't have children. I do have a niece and nephews though, so the book is not totally impractical. I enjoyed how McFarland organizes the book. Each chapter is a different topic. Within each chapter, McFarland covers the topic in three different way: a small childs point of view, a teens point of view, and the adults point of view. 21 most common questions about Christianity are covered.

    My Favorite Parts
    The back of the book for adults was my favorite. Because as I said before, I don't have children.

    What I Got From The Book
    I got a few of my own questions answered through out the book. I recommend this book if you have kids in your life or even if you have questions that seem unanswered. McFarland breaks everything down in really easy to understand terms.

    The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for this review.

    The 21 Toughest Questions Your Kids Will Ask about Christianity:

    The 21 Toughest Questions Your Kids Will Ask about Christianity: & How to Answer Them Confidently by Alex McFarland

    This book is an excellent resource for parents, grandparents, Sunday school teachers and anyone who has asked or had children who have asked the tough questions about God. This is an excellent way to study and learn where to find the answers in the Bible and how to answer these questions. It is a good resource including good explanations and verses to help you to learn and equip yourselves for the inevitable questions that will or have been asked. I love how Alex McFarland says this isn't a book to read verbatim to answer your children but is a way to be ready for those questions. He wants you to delve into maybe why they are asking a question so you know what is motivating the child. Is it curiosity or something that has happened to cause them to question such as loss. It is a very informative and plain language book that helps in your quest to be able to help your children and others when it comes to questions about God and Christianity.

    I would recommend this book for all households and church libraries. I wish I had this book when my children were younger and asking these questions.

    This book is one that I would even think about giving to young adults and adults if they have questions like Why does God allow evil? I found when reading this book that many of the questions were ones that we all at one time or another have asked and this is a good study book to help you with those questions. I think this would be a good book to use in new Christian homes and bible studies.

    I would give this book 5 stars and hope that everyone would read and put in the home and church libraries. I highly recommend this book.


    Thank you to Tyndale Publishers for providing me this free copy of the book for my honest review.
