Jesus wasn’t much on giving direct answers. In fact, of the 183 recorded questions asked of him, he only answered three. He was, however, good at asking questions. For every question he specifically answered, he asked—literally—a hundred. In fact, asking questions was central to Jesus’ life and teachings. Through his questions he modeled the struggle, the wondering, the thinking-it-through that helps us draw closer to God and better understand, not just the answer, but ourselves, our process, and, ultimately, why questions are among Jesus’ most profound gifts for a life of faith. A game-changer of a book.
