When God Asks
I have this little book by Richard Wilkins entitled 'When God Asks'. I can't remember where I purchased it or indeed when but I love re-discovering it now and then.
The book is based around the reader imagining that the ultimate guest has come to dinner and asks some simple questions, each page has just one question and each question ends with...What will you say?
Although the book steers towards religion in it's title, it ends there. The foreword asks you to 'follow the wisdom of your own answers' therefore the book is much more an exploration of oneself than a journey into Christianity...unless of course answering to God is what you wish.
The questions are so simple and yet so powerful, designed to be read with the mind and answered from the heart, allowing one to improve on their life NOT to show them where they are going wrong.
I love that about this book, it can be so uplifting and very grounding and with very little text it's so easy to pick up and fit into any day.
