You Can’t Ask That!: 50 Taboo Questions about the Bible, Jesus, and Christianity
Foreword by Jamie Wright
The perfect gift for “Christians with questions,” doubters, skeptics, and anyone who enjoys exploring the hard questions of faith!
Now, there’s no such thing as a stupid question about faith.
Contributors include today’s most thought-provoking experts on Christian and theological issues including Nadia Bolz-Weber, Tripp Fuller, Kathy Escobar, Jose Morales, Carol Howard Merritt, Matthew Paul Turner, Bart Campolo, Margot Starbuck, Craig Detweiler, Doug Pagitt, and many more.
Each of the 50 questions also include scriptural references, suggested additional sources for reading, and questions for further discussion, making You Can’t Ask That! a great group read, as well. So go ahead, ask your questions -- and be assured that questioning religion is not taboo, but rather the foundation of a strong and growing faith.
Questions in You Can’t Ask That! are compiled from the original Banned Questions of the Bible series.
Praise for the Banned Questions of the Bible Series
“This book isn’t just entertaining and fascinating. It’s inspiring and potentially life-changing. Here’s my own question: Can you be curious and thoughtful about religion and NOT read this book? My answer: No.”—A.J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically
“I've never seen a book quite like this: short, pithy answers to tough and important questions from a team of articulate, insightful thinkers. You've heard the expression ‘pooled ignorance’—but this is the opposite: pooled brilliance. Your own thinking will be deepened by interacting with these sharp minds.”—Brian McLaren, author of Naked Spirituality
“These are some, not all, of the questions many are asking today. These are also some, not all, of the answers serious thinkers are proposing. What this book may do for you is provide an opportunity to ponder anew questions people are really asking about the book we Christians call God’s Word.”—Scot McKnight, author of Blue Parakeet
