This book is based on the premise that asking questions is an act of faith and that the Christian scriptures and God himself invites questions. The book is divided into three sections: “Questions God Asks,” “Questions We Ask,” and “Questions We Wish Someone Would Ask Us.” In each section, Wilbert examines questions asked in the Bible. By taking the questions directly from scripture, she underscores the investigative and contemplative nature of Christianity by rooting it in the history of the faith. Each chapter reflects on just one question and Wilbert’s reflections strike the perfect balance between personal reflection and broad application. Her tone throughout the book is friendly and engaging, which makes reading the book feel like a conversation with a good friend. Chapters are kept relatively short, but the content of the chapters is meaningful enough to reflect on all day long, making this an excellent choice for an addition to personal meditation time.
VERDICT This book is best suited to public libraries with audiences looking for religious devotional materials or religious libraries.
