The Bible’s Answers to 100 of Life’s Biggest Questions by Norman Geisler and Jason Jimenez tackles some big theological questions and some day to day questions about God’s involvement in our lives.
Rather than trying to write a massive essay for each question, the authors opt to keep the responses to at most two pages with a paragraph dedicated to how to apply the answers to your life at the end. If that makes it sound like this book is full of overly simplistic replies, don’t worry. In addition to their relatively quick replies, the authors give a list of Bible references, books, websites, dvds, and online video resources. This way, the reader can choose if they desire to research the question on a deeper level without going to all the wacky and weird resources that exist out there on the web.
Personally, I particularly enjoyed about the writing of the book is that the authors did not shy away from questions that are debated among Christians (e.g. young earth & old earth views). The authors went ahead and tackled such questions but did a good job of presenting multiple sides of debated areas of theology without bashing a particular view and sticking to Scripture.
