I received a complimentary copy of A Conversation with God by Alton Gansky through BookSneeze. The author has taken several popular questions and topics of Christian life and answered or discussed them from different points of view – God, Jesus, Apostles, and other Biblical figures.
I was intrigued to read this book, after reading the description of it online. While I found the writing style to be not one of my favorites, I did find the different viewpoints used very interesting. I am not a big fan of Mr. Gansky answering from God’s viewpoint, using the first person. I understand he wrote it that way to be the same as when he answered from the other characters’ viewpoints, but (to me) it was a bit much to answer as if in God’s voice.
The topics covered ranged from Creation to End Times and from Salvation to Christian living. I did enjoy the variety of topics and found the answers from key Biblical figures to be important to know, in addition to knowing what God says in the Bible. I think Christians ought to know what important figures in our Christian history believed about key Christian topics.
Overall, I was happy with the content and the Biblical references to support the answers given. My only disappointment (and purely a personal one) was the use of first person when giving God’s answer.
