At Odds With God meets many needs. It is a six-session adult Bible study. It is a resource for six sermons, with suggested orders of service. It offers thought-provoking questions, which lead Christians to recognize the conflicts addressed in this book as their own.
Each chapter consists of a story (sermon resource), accompanying scripture, discussion questions, reflections on the chapter theme by a famous Christian, a prayer starter, suggestions for practicing prayer, and a suggested order of worship.
Chapters focus on these Bible personalities:
• Adam and Eve
• King Ahaz
• Balaam, the Donkey and the Angel
• Pontius Pilate
• Ananias and Sapphira
