Questions God Asks Us

by Trevor Hudson

Trans­for­ma­tion comes from ques­tions, not answers. We often look to the Bible as the book of answers. How often, though, do we con­sid­er the chal­leng­ing ques­tions God asks? Hud­son notes that Jesus was asked 183 ques­tions in the Gospels but direct­ly only answered three. In Ques­tions God Asks Us, we’re encour­aged to focus on the quest rather than a res­o­lu­tion. Such an approach draws us into a rela­tion­ship of deep­er shar­ing and inti­ma­cy with God. This is a crit­i­cal turn­ing point in our jour­ney with God — as it was for the author. I thought the Bible exist­ed to give me solu­tions to my every­day con­cerns and dilem­mas,” writes Hud­son. Then I real­ized I might be approach­ing God and the Bible from the wrong direc­tion. It was as if God said to me, Trevor, rather than you always ask­ing ques­tions of me, start lis­ten­ing to the ques­tions I have for you.” Each of 10 ques­tions Hud­son excerpts from the Old and New Tes­ta­ments serve as a start­ing point for gen­uine con­ver­sa­tion with the Cre­ator. He assures, We’re not start­ing the con­ver­sa­tion with God from scratch. God has already begun it. We just need to plug into the con­ver­sa­tion that is already going on.” Ques­tions God Asks Us offers a fresh approach for per­son­al devo­tions and a unique dis­cus­sion tool for small group Bible studies.
