If I Could Ask God Just One Question: 80 Answers to Teens' Most-Asked Questions by Greg Johnson is a wonderful book in the format of presenting one
of the most often asked questions by teens, followed by scripture and then the answer. It's the "one" question of a lot of teens and addresses both some simple and some very complex questions that one would have about worship and a relationship with God. From questions about whether it's okay to read a horoscope to questions about how much you have to give up to make God happy, it runs the gamut. The question of whether smoking or drinking would keep you out of heaven was so innocent and sincere.
If I Could Ask God Just One Question: 80 Answers to Teens' Most-Asked Questions by Greg Johnson may be geared toward questions teens ask, but it answered a lot of questions for this 50-something too. I especially liked the question, "Prayer is confusing . . . how do I know what to ask God for?" Such a good question! If I Could Ask God Just One Question is a great way to reach teens who are curious, confused, and too embarrassed to ask the question of their pastor or a friend. The tone of the book is perfect for teens. The last question in the book is the best and it actually comes in the answer - "Where am I in relation to Jesus Christ?"
