Answering the Questions of Jesus (EWTN Publishing)

Answering the Questions of Jesus is a 120 page book that reflects on many of the questions Jesus asked in the Gospels. The book is divided into twelve chapters, each of which is one of the questions of Jesus. "Did You Know That I Must Be In My Father's House?" "Woman, What Concern Is That To You And Me?" "Could You Not Watch With Me One Hour?" These are just a few of the questions Jesus presented to people He met and that Fr. Andrew Apostoli tackles. Each chapter provides a summation of the Scripture passage where the question is found. Fr. Apostoli then has sections that deal with where we can find Jesus, trusting Jesus, finding strength in Jesus, and staying with Jesus. Each chapter then concludes with questions for both reflection and discussion. The book is a very easy read and one that I was able to tackle within an hour the first read through. However, it is a book you should read through more than once, as it will speak to you the more you dive into the book. Personally, I think the book is best read in a small-group format, so that you can share the gift of this book with others. While this book is aimed at Catholics, any Christian denomination would benefit from this book. and I highly recommend it.

This book was provided to me for free by Sophia Institute Press in exchange for an honest review.
