This book does not try to sound clever, or win an argument. It does aim to introduce people to Jesus and the answers he gives to the hard questions we ask.

Many Christian young adults and teenagers have hard questions about their faith. Many non-Christians do, too. Michael and Carl take nine of the hardest, such as "Doesn't Jesus ruin your fun?" "Why is there so much suffering?" and "What does Jesus really think about being gay?" These aren't questions with easy answers; but, as they show, they are questions that have good answers. Written for people of all backgrounds and beliefs, it's a book that is short but not simplistic, and clear but not condescending.

If you are a Christian struggling with these issues… if you want to have confidence to talk to your friends about these things… or if you are a non-Christian who wants answers to the hardest questions you can ask… grab this book.

A helpful book to give to students at university.


“Great for use in youth groups! ”

We used 'Tricky' to prepare a short series focussed especially on equipping our young people with succinct, biblically faithful and engaging answers to some of the common questions their friends ask them. Our youth leaders benefitted from the book as a starting point for preparing sessions and our young people especially were helped by the chapter on suffering as they had been asking lots of questions about this during the previous term. We'd wholeheartedly recommend it as a resource to give away to young people.
