If I Could Ask God Anything is just that - a series of questions and answers divided by topic and geared for children. The questions are open and honest, and the answers are, too. When an answer isn't known, Slattery says that, as well as explaining how she knows the answers she does. She lists references for known answers and explains in simple, clear-cut terms.
I love the way that this book starts out with simple questions like "Did Jesus ever do anything wrong" and works up to harder questions like "If God loves people, why do bad things happen?" Slattery doesn't dodge difficult questions and gives them the same honest consideration as the simpler ones. Written from a Christian perspective, the answers in this book are encouraging and appropriate for a child of any age who asks them. The scripture references make it easy to go back to the Bible and see for yourself, in context, what God has to say about any given topic. This book is a must for any parent who has a curious child asking those hard-to-answer questions.
Thomas Nelson has provided me with a free copy of this book. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I expressed are my own.
