Clear, well-researched answers to common gospel questions
David Ridges has experience teaching in Church CES system, Seminaries and Institutes. That comes through in the no-nonsense Gospel Questions, Gospel Answers. Each subject is structured with a gospel question heading such as Why do bad things happen to good people? This is followed by a straightforward answer, short explanation, yes, no, or "it depends" kind of answer, directly related to the question. Then Ridges gives an explanation, using scripture verses, quotes from LDS general authorities, and spin-off questions that arise out of consideration of the topics. Each explanation is simple and to the point. Ridges is well-researched, and answers are doctrinally sound.
There are so many answers out there that we would like to know, this book answers lots of questions that I have had and gave me a greater and deeper knowledge concerning God and what he wants for us on this earth. I would recommend this book to anyone who has ever questioned God, his church or life in general.
