This book started life as a series of lunchtime talks to non-Christians, and the author has taken on board further questions and discussions along the way. Here is an attempt to answer real, and often difficult, questions honestly.

'Most of the questions I get asked are about God himself, and not so much about his existence as his character,' explains Michael Ots. 'What kind of God is he? How can he be good when he authorizes war, allows suffering, represses our sexuality, punishes his own Son, and excludes people on the basis of their beliefs, condemning them to hell?'
