Featuring cute illustrations by Amylee Weeks (I love the owl!), “Has Anyone Ever Seen God?,” written by Carolyn Larsen, answers 101 frequently asked questions about God.
The author breaks the book into three parts: questions and answers about God, about God’s world, and about the Bible. Each page features a common question, with its answer and a verse from the Bible applicable to that topic.
In the first section, questions include, amongst many others, who God is and what His character is, who Satan is, what sin is, why God allows bad people to succeed, where is God when terrible things happen, and why He sent Jesus into the world.
The second section focuses on topics like why and how did God create the world and mankind, the Garden of Eden, do animals have spirits, and our responsibility toward creation.
And the third sections tackles issues like the Bible and its importance, how to study the Bible, and Jesus and the gospels.
Overall, “Has Anyone Ever Seen God?” is a good, basic introduction to many of the commonly asked questions about God and Christianity. Some of the answers are fairly generic, but this book offers a good overall synopsis — and it does it in a cute way with Weeks’ illustrations! “Gratitude” acts as a good general resource for those who already are believers, as well as new believers and those searching.
Four stars out of five.
