I really enjoyed this book. I was skeptical at first but it got better as the book went on. This book answers 7 bible based questions people may be wondering and at the end tells you the answers and in a clear, concise answer so that it makes sense to people. And some of the questions I enjoyed and I am a bible reader and know alot about the bible so this book is for everyone and anyone. And the one main point that I enjoyed from the book is do not wage war against GOD. It makes a good point that GOD will always win and you can see that from many stories in the bible.

I enjoyed the question about why the woman who was supposed to be stoned for committing adultery and why Jesus let her go. Right before the woman was supposed to be stoned Jesus asked the pharisees this statement, "You without sin can cast the first stone." Yet the pharisees realized they had all at some point sinned so they walked away. The pharisees and scribes were actively sinning at the moment they were confronting Christ with the woman.  And when Jesus was saving the woman from being stoned, he wrote something on the ground with his finger.While the pharisees and teachers of the life were correct, that the woman was guilty of adultery and according to the law must be stoned but the scriptures show that it takes two. Her partner should be stoned as well. So Jesus had written the words, where's the man?.( most of this can be found on the pages 33-40).

I also enjoyed the story of David and Goliath and why David had gathered 5 stones to kill Goliath and why the 5 stones are important. I learned that four other giants stood in the Philistine ranks the day David slew Goliath.(You can read more about on page 133-134)Goliath had 4 brothers. He was more than willing to confront all 5 giants at once.

I also enjoyed the part on the wall of Jericho and why on the seventh day the Israelites changed what they had been doing. It made the troops of Jericho alarmed, you climb to the top of the walls to see what the Israelites are doing, expecting an attack from the other side, at the top the Israelites had climbed ontop with their spears to take the troops of Jericho out. And then after the sound of the trumpet, the walls crash down killing the troops of Jericho.

All in all I enjoyed this book because it kept me guessing on some of the answers and I learned alot and I also liked how the author kept all the details of the bible correct and didn't misconstrue any of the scriptures, like many other people do. I would recommend this anyone.
