REVIEW: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About God by Eric Metaxas

About the Book

We all have questions about God. But very few of us get the answers we’re looking for–if those answers even exist! Do they? Where (in heaven’s name) do you go to find out?

Eric Metaxas understands. That’s why he’s written this refreshingly down-to-earth take on the big questions everyone asks (but not always out loud).

Finally a book that takes questions about God seriously enough to get silly (where appropriate). Wonderfully conversational and often very funny, this book joins you in wondering:
·How can a good God create a world that has evil and suffering? 
·Is God anti-sex? 
·Doesn’t science make God obsolete? 
·What’s the real story on miracles? 
·If God is everywhere, why go to church? 
·Don’t we already have God within us? 
·Isn’t God too busy running the universe to care about the details of my day? 
·What does the Bible say about things like UFOs, ESP, and the afterlife–and what about Bigfoot?
These questions (and many more like them) get straight answers that don’t hide behind dull and confusing theological language. So get the lowdown on the big questions everyone asks–but please try not to laugh (because it’s a very serious topic).

My Review

I really like Eric Metaxas as a speaker and was excited to see this book was available for review. I really enjoy books regarding Apologetics and I really loved my Apologetics course in Bible college. So I decided to give this book a whirl. I loved Eric's personal writing style, it felt like I was having a conversation with him and not just reading his words. I also enjoyed his humorous and fun writing style. He made the subject fun but while still taking the subject of apologetics seriously. The Q&A parts of the chapters were great too. Overall I enjoyed this book and will be on the lookout for more book by Metaxas, especially his biographies.
