Tough Questions About the Bible
Joel R. Beeke
Have you ever asked "Why did God allow Adam and Eve to sin? Why did he create mosquitoes? What is God's plan for me?" Sometimes we have really tough questions. We wonder if there is anyone who can give us an answer. Some questions are about life, some are about death - some of them are even about God. How can we get answers to questions about God and the Bible? Well - one way is to read the Bible - the Word of God. Joel Beeke helps us by taking our questions about life, death, sin, salvation and many other topics we can find confusing and teaching us what God says in his Word. Sometimes we have tough questions, sometimes we don't get the answers we want or expect, but the Word of God is faithful and we can trust that what we need to know, God will reveal to us.
Children from a variety of backgrounds have come up with the questions in this book and Joel Beeke has done his best to answer these in the light of God's Word. These are real questions from real children in real life situations - and a real pastor with a genuine concern for their souls takes them to the one true God and the real gospel.
