I am so pleased to review Questions God Asks: Unlocking the Wisdom of Eternity by author and speaker Israel Wayne.
This book is must-have for any Christian and is a great evangelistic tool for non-believers.
It’s time… Stop demanding answers from God. Start learning from the questions he asks of US.
Every single one of the 144 pages is full of Scripture and God’s glory as the questions God asks His people are discussed, storied, explained. The author’s Bible knowledge is enviable.
Who knew God spoke to His people in Socratic method? Asking rhetorical questions, again and again He makes His people think for themselves and realize He is in control. He wants to make sure we rely on Him and not our own selves. He wants our love and our obedience and He asks for it so cleverly, but making us realize what’s already known.
Using examples from the Bible for the questions God asks – and He already knows the answers! – Israel Wayne guides us on a spiritual journey into the heart and mind of God and urges us to seek Him more deeply through the teachings of these Bible characters.
Just when I thought I was familiar with the stories of Job, Adam, Cain, Moses, Joshua, Elijah, and others…Israel Wayne adds a new component to digging deeper and understanding the Bible more clearly.
The overall theme of the book is men trying to do for themselves instead of relying on God for every.single.thing. and believing in His promises. Even taking two steps forward, they often take a step back and flail and flounder, just like I do. “When you take what you have, dead and lifeless though it may be, and give it to God, it becomes living and sometimes even a bit scary” (Chapter 9). And I love how the author sneaks in little admonitions for husbands and parents.
The author is funny, but in such a respectful way – like when he discusses his sister, wife, or children, he never ridicules and isn’t even self-deprecating. His humor is classic and classy – on social media and in his book. And it’s a great compliment that I couldn’t put the book down until I was finished.
