The God Interviews Book Review

I was happy when I was offered the opportunity to review a copy of the God Interviews by Julie Allyson-Ieron.  It’s just the type of book that I enjoy digging into.  Many of the questions that are addressed in the book are actually questions that I would ask God if he was my captive audience.

Julie Allyson Ieron’s book The God Interviews Questions You Would Ask; Answers God Gives is a book designed to answer some of the most common and often heartfelt questions people often ask God. This book is set up in a style (as the name implies) in which God is actually in studio being interviewed and asked some rather tough questions.  In some cases women whose name reflected the pain of their questions called in to put their questions to the creator.

Disgruntled in Delaware wanted to know, “Why did you make me the way I am?”
Flummoxed asked, “Why have you allowed bad things into my life?”
Weeping in Westdale asked, “Why do answers take so long?”

I was impressed by the way Julie Allyson-Ieron wove the fictional interviews with God into this book based on scripture. I found much to think about as I read through the book.  What I also liked was the fact that although the interviews were fictional, after each segment the author adeptly ties in scripture instead of taking creative liberties with the answers.

I would highly recommend this book. This is also one that I will place on my reread list.

Trusting Him,


  1. Thanks you for this review, Bernadine. Good review, and it sounds like a good book. I'm teaching a philosohy course now and we are in a section about God - his existence, the rationality of faith, etc. This book would have been a good addition to the class.

    I don't get to do much blog visiting these days. I'm back in school taking classes, as well as teaching classes. Visiting blogs, and even writing for my own, takes a back seat.

    Hope you are doing well.

  2. This sounds so good Bernadine.
    I hope you are doing good. I ma trying to get back to blogging after a break!

  3. Good day my sister it has truly been awhile I miss all of you so much and now that I am no longer on google blogspot I can't get to catch up on my ladies. But I found you today and I just want to wish you and your family a very blessed Thanksgiving. Thank you for being such a good friend to me. I am not sure how I can continue to get your postings since I am using wordpress now. But I will find away. AMEN


Thank you for dropping by. Do leave a note so I can return the compliment.
