Your Questions. God's Answers.

New book by Rev. Dr. William Edgar, professor of apologetics, explores 24 questions asked by teenagers about Christianity such as, Where is God?' 'Can we trust the Bible?' 'What about love and sex?' 'Does God love gay people?' 'When will the world end?' 'Are there vampires?' 'Can I have real friends?' ... and more. Westminster M.Div. student, Bijan Mirtolooi reviews the book on his student ministry blog, Rooted, here.

Publisher's Description: It can be difficult to ask questions, far less answer them. Perhaps you've felt that sometimes the questions you really want to ask just can't be answered. They're too difficult; too embarrassing; and perhaps you shouldn't be asking them anyway.

William Edgar takes a selection of twenty-four questions just like that — questions that are asked by young adults just like you — and gives a biblical, common sense, unpatronizing answer to each.

Edgar tackles issues such as 'Where is God?' 'Can we trust the Bible?' 'What about love and sex?' 'Does God love gay people?' 'When will the world end?' 'Are there vampires?' 'Can I have real friends?' ... and more.

Discussion questions are included for each chapter

“Bill Edgar is a listening and deeply respectful Christian whose presence brings others (and especially young people) immediately into the circle of his life-long friends. I suspect that You Asked will add to that circle every teenager who reads it!”
- Sinclair B. Ferguson, Distinguished Visiting Professor of Systematic Theology

“I know that here my students will find clear and compelling answers to the questions they are asking in language they understand. I am delighted it's available and will be directing students to it for years to come.”
- Bijan Mirtolooi, Youth Ministry Staff, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City
