Now That's A Good Question
R. C. Sproul
Summary: Do you have a question about spiritual things? Have you ever wanted to ask a well renowned theologian for his input? This is a great book for exactly that. It's very readable and has a great reference system to help you find exactly what you're looking for. First, the book is divided into 22 different chapters. Each chapter focuses on a specific topic such as Prayer, Suffering, the Bible, Sin, Money Matters, Family, etc. Then at the back of the book you will find a well stocked alphabetical index that covers anything you could possibly want to look up with the corresponding page number. This book doesn't need (nor is it intended) to be read cover to cover. Read the chunks that mean something to you. Use it to answer some of your questions. As you browse through it, topics will pique your interest and you will automatically find yourself reading portions.
Personal Thoughts: I received this book when I was 16. I loved it then, I love it now. I still enjoy flipping through this book and browsing through it. I often encourage young people to pick up this book as I think it's really geared for them. Young people often have a lot of questions about their faith that they may be uncomfortable to voice. This book helps them get solid, Reformed answers. I've also used this book in young people settings. I would read a question out of the book to generate discussion. After the discussion I would read R.C. Sproul's wise counsel on the matter.
Some questions covered in this book:
How should I handle my own doubts about God's presence in my life?
Are other world religions and other philosophies a threat to Christianity?
I know God has forgiven me for my sins, but how can I begin to forgive myself?
Does God hear the prayers of a non-Christian?
Can the devil read my mind?
What causes the most pressure or strain on my pastor?
As Christians, how are we to deal with the sinful lifestyles of members of our family or guests that come into our home?How do we uphold Christian ethics without being judgmental?
