"Faith is a dynamic thing, a lively thing, of asking questions and finding answers," says Danielle D'Souza. In Y God, she addresses more than thirty of the most interesting and pressing questions being asked about God by believers and skeptics alike. Rather than coming across as having all the answers, Danielle puts her ideas in the form of a conversation. Yet at her core she has convictions that come from a faith rooted in her heart as well as her head. Y God will appeal to Millennials (the Y generation) and anyone who has ever had doubts about the biblical story of God. Questions include:
Is faith reasonable?
Are miracles really possible?
Is the Bible literally true?
Is God the author of morality?
Are other religions false?
Is America a "Christian nation"?
Does anyone deserve hell?
Why do people become atheists?
Is science at war with religion?
Is evolution compatible with the Bible?
If Jesus did exist, who was he?
How would Christianity change my life?

What a welcome surprise to see an apologetic book which is written for a teen by a teen. One of the greatest aspects of Y God is that it is engaging and written with simplicity. The purpose of the book is not to convince teens about God, or to prove anything beyond a shadow of a doubt, but to bring logical; practical answers to 32 of the most compelling questions that both believers and skeptics have about God and faith. Y God is wonderfully written and a must read for every teenager. Y God gives conversation to teens regarding the toughest of questions and brings a fresh approach to every question.
