Unlike C. Avery, I AM going to review the contents of this book, being that this is the reason for reviews on Amazon in the first place.
To C., and the others who did not read this book, "Hard Questions" is replete with teachings and examples from the Bible. Moses and Jethro, and Mary and Martha, were two examples used in the chapter on finding balance in life - a great subject for me and my family, and many others I know.
A chapter that I thought was interesting talks about if we can be angry and not sin. The use of Christ cleansing the temple seems to be a perfect example (it is covered from the perspective of each of the four gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), and the comment to "not get so angry you cannot pray" is one that has inspired me up many times since having read it.
Some of the other pertinent topics for our day are: Can a person who has been abused be healed, Is it possible to reconcile war with the teachings of Jesus Christ, and How can we find peace amidst adversity?
While most any book on this topic is one I have to try and stay awake while reading, "Hard Questions" uses stories and scriptures to keep it entertaining while explaining and supporting each topic, thus making it easier to read. If you are one who seeks to better understand and follow the teachings of Christ, there are treasures to be found here.
Many of C. Avery's followers said they did not read this book because it is not of the Bible, or something like that. The Bible says to hold fast to that which is good (Romans 12:9, 1 Thessalonians 5:21), and think on things that are true, lovely, of good report, etc (Philippians 4:8). So I wonder what kind of Christian ignores the teachings of Christ, or learning more of His word, because their imperfect hearts hold feelings of ill will toward the source. If it's of God, isn't He the source?
But rather than just listen to me, follow the Spirit when deciding what to read, and in discerning what is important for your life!
