The 21 toughest questions your kids will ask about Christianity, Alex McFarland
A book that is meant to build the reader's confidence (and maybe answer some of their own questions) so that the reader can answer the questions of kids and new believers. Sometimes God's character and will is hard to grasp and even harder to understand. For instance the other day when discussing God's judgment and the story of Daniel and his friends my daughter asked - "Why does God allow good Christian people to suffer with all the evil people in the world?" These questions can be a bit intimidating and even a little scary - especially since the majority of us want to give an adequate answer. McFarland's book does just that - it equips you to answer some difficult questions in an easy to understand manner. I appreciate that McFarland points out that this book is not to be read verbatim but rather is to be used as a tool to help you answer (in you own words) the tough questions. I have to say the quotes at the beginning of each chapter had to be some of the best!! I love this addition to the book. McFarland has done an excellent job creating a resource that will help the reader answer questions and to be more confident in their own beliefs as well. Thanks to Tyndale for this review copy.
