Questions God Asks {Book Review}

Disclosure: I received a PDF copy of the book to facilitate my book review. Regardless, all opinions are my own.

Book reviewLately my reading time has been very limited. In fact, I have a hard time fitting in personal reading time and a harder time finishing books I have started unless I really get into them. Many days I just read my Bible devotional and passages for the day and the kids’ reading materials. I was really intrigued by Questions God Asks and excited to read it.

Questions God Asks is definitely a book I can just sit and read. In fact, I generally only read one to two chapters at a time, but I read the first five chapters the first time I started it!

Here is a summary:

Why would God ask anyone a question? We ask questions when we don’t understand. Yet, the Creator of the universe who spoke all that we see into being asks questions. Unimaginable power and wisdom are already His. As strange as it may seem to us, the Bible is filled with questions God asks. He is not the one who needs answers – these questions help us to understand both God and ourselves.

  • Delve into the answers found by Job, Adam, Cain, Moses, Joshua, Elijah, and others
  • Examine our fundamental assumptions about God, human nature, relationships, origins, and purpose
  • Learn about godly character and God’s transforming message

Find a powerful supplement for family worship, Bible study, and personal devotions in the Questions God Asks. Stop demanding answers from God and begin answering the questions He asks of us.

The author, Israel Wayne, goes through various questions God asks throughout the Bible and uses Scripture to further demonstrate that God doesn’t ask questions because He doesn’t know the answers but because He wants us to carefully consider the answers and situations.

I had never thought of this before, but he explains it so simply in a way that just makes sense. Why did God ask those questions when we clearly know He knows the answers? The detail, Biblical reference, and how it’s relevant in our life today is more of what we need to really consider. Who told us what we believe?

Each chapter addresses not just a specific question from The Bible but also a specific area of our life whether it be a mood, behavior, relationship, etc. Are we considering all these areas in our life?

Questions God Asks challenges us to answer the questions God asks in a way that is relevant to each of us. It is definitely a great addition to my daily reading and something I recommend for Christians at any stage of their walk with God to dig deeper in their relationship with Him.

  1. Brenda A Saball says

    Love the sound of this book and would love to find it to read.

  2. This sounds like an excellent book. Over the years, my pastor has taught on this very subject. He says basically the same thing, when God asks us a question, it’s not because He lacks the answer, but that He wants us to think about the question/answer. I’d like to read this, I love reading.

  3. The thing I would enjoy most from Questions God Asks is the application. Sometimes we read the Bible and situations that men or women in the Bible went through and don’t think about how it applies to us. I love the fact that Israel Wayne uses Scripture to demonstrate that God doesn’t ask questions because He doesn’t know the answers but because He wants us to carefully consider the answers and situations. I often need adjustments to my attitude and reading God’s word helps me to see my sin and change. I praise the Lord for authors who know the Bible and help us to see our need of God and the power of His Holy Spirit to correct our thoughts, words and actions.
