"A Conversation With God: If You Could Ask Any Question, What Would It Be?" by Alton Gansky is what I wold call a self help book. Alton Gansky has done a great job at providing questions that a lot of both christians and non christians ask most about. This book was written in a format so that you do not have to read it in order nor do you have to read it all at one time. If one particular section appeals to you then you can read that question and skip past other sections that you aren't interested in.
When I first received the book I was actually quite shoked at how think it was. There are over 300 pages in the book and I was a little overwhelmed by looking at it. I flipped to the contents page and skimmed over the questions that are asked in the book. There are a total of 55 questions in the book, but as I found out some of the questions have more detailed questions so sometimes it got a little confusing. "A Conversation With God: If You Could Ask Any Question, What Would It Be?" by Alton Gansky is also written as you asking the questions and characters from the Bible answering them. God, Jesus, John, Moses and plenty of other notable people from the Bible are included in this book. I would say that if you are looking for basic answers with no meat and juice to the answers that this would be a good starting point for you. The one thing that this book lacks is scripture references in the actual answers. You can flip to the back of the book and the answers have the scriptures to back them up but I like being able to see the verses quoted or at least referenced in each answer. Flipping back and forth between the answers, back of the book and then my Bible really made it hard for me to follow.
Over all, I would that this book is a good starting point if you are a new believer or just have those basic questions about the Bible. Don't expect to get any real in depth answers to your questions though. I think this would be perfect for a teenager just discovering their faith or to anyone who just wonders about those basic biblical principles.
