Customer reviews

“Nice book to accompany the CE course”

(Review written for 'If you could ask God one question (ebook)')

The book is well written and also a good companion book for the CE course. I have no question to recommend and encourage anyone who wants to care about his/her ethernal life. It worths to spend time to read it and think of it in deep. Then you may want to explore more from the Bible. There is also different translations of the book including Chinese Language.


“Great introduction for someone with a new faith”

(Review written for 'If You Could Ask God One Question')

I am a new member of Jesus's fan club, so am devouring everything I can to deepen my understanding and grow closer to him. This book (and the other I bought - Christianity Explored - having just done the course) are very easy to read, very accesssible and not at all intimidating. Am very impressed with the service provided by The Good Book guys, but have one issue. I know it says what it does on the tin, but would be great to be able to buy christian music too - like New Life Worship CD's or other christian artists.


“useful book ”

(Review written for 'If You Could Ask God One Question')

Useful to give to enquirers and interesting for anyone. Well written.


“Great book to give away”

My non Christian friend had been asking questins and gave her this. It is easy to read and very thought provoking and led to lots more conversations. Great!


“Great to give away to friends who want a Bible based answer.”

This book is funny and very readable. It will appeal to anyone but particularly those with the usual "big questions" who are beginning to search for God. Everything is argued from the Bible itself, including the authenticity of the Bible. This is obviously great, but ironically may be the only downside to this book - that it might be completely written off by people who don't think the Bible has any weight.


“Some good ideas but many useful points missed”

Having just started running a Christianity Explored course, and heard many different questions, I was looking forward to a really wide range of answers from the authors. But, sadly, only 13 Questions are dealt with, in what turns out to be more of a story book.
I am very thrilled by the Christianity Explored course, but if there is a second edition of this book, please could we have many more questions, with much briefer (and to the point) answers.


“An excellent guide to all those questions that we never dare to ask...”

The book is excellent for people of all ages. It really digs deep into issues that most of us don't really dare to ask, such as sex, suffering and morals. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants answers or a general overview into what Christians are 'really like'.


“An excellent evangelistic tool”

This book answers many of the questions raised by unbelievers when confronted with the message of the Gospel. It also equips Christians to handle common objections to the Gospel. Very readable and to be thoroughly recommended to both believers and unbelievers alike


“useful tool”

A selection of questions that will resonate with many non-believers. The authors have managed to convey the truth in a non-threatening way with good use of statisitcs, biblical text and humour. A good apologetic tool.


“Excellent for Christians and seekers”

Currently we are running the CY course for a group of youth and I read this book so I could review it for the group. As a Christian I found it an excellent book which was so easy to read and so relevant to today's generation. It helped me to reinforce my beliefs and clarify how I would answer such questions.
Obviously it is an excellent evangelistic tool for seekers as it is so easy to read and yet covers so many key areas of the faith.
