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