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
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.
