eBookIf Jesus Isn't the Answer...He Sure Asks the Right Questions! eBook • $8.99
Jesus is universally hailed as a great teacher, but sometimes we forget that questions were an essential part of his teaching. This book helps us recapture this fact even as it leads us into earnest explorations of life’s most important issues—just as Jesus did. Taking eleven of his questions as its core, If Jesus Isn’t the Answer . . . invites readers into their own conversation with Jesus. Equal parts testimony, theological instruction, pastoral counseling, and autobiography, the book is ultimately an invitation to honest Christian discipleship.
And now, Dan Day, I have questions for you. Where in God’s heaven have you been? If you can interpret the Bible like this, think theologically like this, challenge us spiritually like this, analyze human nature like this, spin a phrase like this and make us laugh like this, why haven’t you been churning our souls with your writing like this for years? Will you please answer with another book like this before you meet your Maker, and the Maker asks why you did not write more for the good of the church and the flowering of humanity?
—Walter B. Shurden

Questions of faith that are asked in faith lead to more faith not less. Dan Day’s exploration of Jesus’ questions deepens our trust in God and broadens our view of the world. This book beautifully practices the proven method of spiritual formation known as “faith seeking understanding.”

Many Christians find it difficult to ask “hard” questions when it comes to matters of faith. There is the fear that asking questions can destroy one’s faith. In If Jesus Isn’t the Answer, He Sure Asks the Right Questions, Daniel Day helps to take away the fear. With candor and honesty, he praises the value of asking questions by pointing to Jesus as a master in the “great Jewish tradition of asking ‘convincing questions.’” Dan then takes a look at some of those hard questions posed by Jesus and offers, in a humble, confessional style, his own thoughts and observations. Letting us peer over his shoulder as he grapples with hard questions helps us see that growth, not fear, can come from asking.

Dan Day loves language, stories, questions and Jesus. He shows those loves in these pages. He offers us gifts which are rare these days: thoughtful reflection on issues that matter, perceptive interpretation of scripture, good humor, a resistance to cliche, an allergy to formulaic answers, and a kind of faith that makes darkness bearable and uncertainty an adventure.
