We all have many unanswered questions concerning God and what is written in the Bible. Why aren’t things so straightforward? Why are they quite complex, we may ask?
Malcolm Dunjey, the author of 136 Questions, published by Ark House Press, had the same questions, so he decided to put pen to paper on some topical and controversial subjects. Some of the discussions are formal, some casual – all focused on helping the reader understand some of the Bible’s many and great unanswered questions.
Malcolm has written his book to help readers understand the scriptures and to give them an overview of some of the unanswered questions that arise.
The author explains why it was so important to write this book. “I wanted to ask some questions which reflected on my varied background as a missionary, minister of the gospel and a medical doctor,” Malcolm told me.
“The need for a book to be free of denominations and theology. My thinking was the book should be one-of-a-kind and unique in its conception and range of topics.”
Christianity always provokes a number of questions and Malcolm discusses many topics that people are contemplating on a wide range of Biblical issues. In fact, 136 of them.
Some questions deal with eternity; what that actually means and what awaits us. The author also looks at who God is, as this is a question many people are thinking about.
His book covers articles on issues such as abortion, homosexuality, same sex marriage, the future or fate of Israel, the trustworthiness of the Bible and examines if there are any errors in these topics.
Malcolm also debates and examines what and where are heaven and hell, and the contentious issue of suffering, particularly relating to Christians. He also talks about Jesus, a blood sacrifice for sin.
“Many people are not sure if the devil even exists or if there is a second coming and how this will manifest,” the author explains. “There is also the question of how God is portrayed in the Old Testament and then in the New Testament, as there appears some differences in how God seems to handle humanity, and suffering.
“Is there sometimes the possibility of there being a hiatus between the Gods of the Old and New Testaments? Why did Jesus die? These subjects are often discussed and debated and often there are no finite answers.”
“I think my treatment of all these topics is ‘one of a kind’, almost unique,” Malcolm maintains. “The range of topics is wide, covering most of our beliefs, but the answers are brief, succinct and nearly complete within my self-imposed limit of a reasonably small and attractive book, without being academic or stuffy. Each topic is introduced
and peppered with searching and sometimes controversial questions, but I remain Evangelical in doctrine. I searched before I wrote but couldn’t find a similar work.”
If you have questions about God and what is written in the Bible then 136 Questions can help you and give some answers.
The book is available now globally.
