Each chapter starts with part of the conversation and then proceeds to explain the subject under discussion in more detail. A wide range of subjects are covered in the first part in order to show that God has done everything necessary so that we can have a personal relationship with him. The questions which arise in the continuing discussion are all based on the author's personal experience - the book includes many questions she has asked herself and questions she has been asked by others. The message is clear that it is possible for you to know God because he has done everything necessary for this and shown beyond any doubt how much he loves you.
The book is based firmly on the Bible and the author writes in such a way as to provoke interest and to simplify what some might see as a complicated matter - that of knowing God. If it is possible for me, then it is possible for you, is the message of her book.
The book would be invaluable for you if you claim to be a Christian but are not sure whether you do have a personal relationship with God. It would also be helpful for those who have no faith and yet are intrigued by those who do. Those who belong to other religions may also find it interesting.
Churches could find it useful in outreach work and Christians who know God may find it useful in discussions with their non-Christian friends, many of whom may well have asked them this very question - 'How do you know you know God?'

Reviewed by Bil Howard for Readers' Favorite Being asked to prove that you know God seems to be nearly impossible when you first are asked to prove it, but Margaret Weston in How Do I Know I Know God? does an excellent job of laying out a decisive answer. Margaret opens each chapter with a dialogue, similar to that which Socrates used in his discussions, and then after each, shows the biblical references which coincide with the discussion in a way that anyone could understand. In the first part of the book, Margaret discusses the evidence that has been given to us through history and scripture and in the second part she gives personal testimony to her own relationship with God through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Each chapter zeroes in on answering specific questions related to God’s existence as He revealed Himself in His creation, as well as through His written word, but it goes deeper into the evidence collaborated by witnesses, of which Margaret is one. Being able to explain how you know God often strikes a Christian with a sudden profound silence or something which is similar to how a mother answers a toddler when he asks why. However, in How I know I know God? Margaret Weston helps to provide ready answers to that question. By beginning each chapter with a dialogue, she helps the Christian who is struggling to answer the question to take a step by step approach by answering each part of the question, rather than trying to answer the big question. The biblical references are well placed and come straight to the point and the personal testimony backs up the promise that God would indeed be with those who are called by His name. Profound, encouraging and practical, How I Know I Know God? is an easy to read guide that will help you be able to better explain how you know God to anyone who asks.
