Product Description

From "Why am I here?" to "What''s next?" in this international bestseller, Alpha pioneer Nicky Gumbel addresses some of the foundational questions that challenge us all. Questions of Life is a step-by-step guide to the basics of the Christian faith by one of the world''s most respected Christian leaders. This book contains the talks that are given on Alpha, and in it Nicky explores key themes, questions, and objections to faith, leading us on an engaging, personal journey of discovery.

Alpha creates an environment of hospitality where people can bring their friends, family, and work colleagues to explore the Christian faith, ask questions, and share their point of view. Alpha makes it easy to invite friends to have spiritual conversations which explore life''s biggest questions in a safe and respectful way.

Alpha''s approach to hospitality, faith, and discussion is designed to welcome everyone, especially those who might not describe themselves as Christians or church-goers. Each session includes time for a large group meal, short teaching, and small group discussion.

I guess the price is cheap because many people buy the book for the course, only to never open its pages again; but, do not confuse price with worth. I initially bought this book because I am interested in topics and courses which cater to a wide audience of Christian denominations. I have found it is one of those books I can pick up weeks, months, or years later, only to glean more understanding than when I read it last. Filled with cartoons, jokes, anecdotes, and personal stories, this book provides many different ways of illustrating the same principles over again. Nicky Gumbel is a gifted teacher who also incorporates teachings of other Christian authors such as CS Lewis, for example. Perhaps someday people will be quoting from Nicky Gumbel in the same light. Only time will tell. In the meantime, I plan on holding on to this book as something I can pass on to my children, and my children''s children.

I am doing the alpha course and LOVE Nicky Gumbel. We attend an amazing church called National Community Church and have amazing pastors teaching us weekly: Mark Batterson, Heather Zempel, Richard Foth. We think Nicky Gumbel is even better! His stories are funny and poignant and illustrate perfectly the points he is trying to make. While watching the video series, you will find yourself trying to write down everything he saying - it''s impossible! Lol.

Enter this book. Every word he speaks in the series is in this book. The first session is word-for-word. I was delighted to see that for some sessions, the book had more examples and stories.

This book can also stand alone, since it is the series in a book. For those searching, this book is great. Nicky really addresses both sides of the coin as far as faith goes. He includes all of the logical arguments or proofs, and the series is meant to answer questions for those on the fence about believing. He also presents the concepts of faith with a unique perspective that is all his own.

For example, to help you feel comfortable with the idea that we are all sinners, a priest friend of his has a "measuring stick", if you will, on the wall. At the top (the ceiling) is the best person you know, the most Christ-like and at the floor would be the most evil, worst sinner you know. And then you put yourself somewhere on the continuum, most likely somewhere in the middle - I.e. you think there are others who sin less than you and others who sin more. But you are not the most perfect person you know, therefore you are obviously somewhat of a sinner. Now you can see that you do sin and we do need our sins forgiven.

Every lesson has multiple stories that break the concepts down to this basic level - and with humor and humility.

I can''t recommend this book enough to both believers and non-believers.

The Alpha course is much needed for new and old believers in Jesus. Excellent for the many people who don''t know who Jesus is. This book gives perspective.
