Thanks for Asking, 2nd Edition
Why does God allow suffering? Over my years as a pastor, I’ve heard some tough questions asked about the Bible and about God. These were hard questions my church congregation had, and these were also difficult questions my congregation heard from people they encountered.
They needed answers.
Our pastoral team solicited questions from our church family about faith, people, and life. 1 Peter 3:15 became our motivation for the series: “In your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.”
This series would prove to be inspired by God. We asked, and many questions came in. Why do bad things happen? What does the Bible say about homosexuality? What does the Bible say about alcohol? Is suicide an unforgivable sin? Our church had so many questions for God, and we knew that others did, too.
If you have questions, but are struggling to find the right answers, the second edition of Thanks for Asking is the perfect place to start. This practical, approachable resource will help guide you to find solid, biblical answers to your questions.
