Order Now!
*Also available anywhere books are sold.

We all have questions about Jesus, but very few of us get the answers we’re looking for — if the answers even exist! Do they? Where (in heaven’s name) do you go to find out?  New York Times bestselling author Eric Metaxas understands how hard it can be to get hard truths, and that’s why he has written this hilarious, entertaining guide to the most influential single Person to have ever lived on the face of the earth.

Like his previous books in this style, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About God:  THE JESUS EDITION is a book that takes questions about the Son of God seriously enough to get silly — where appropriate.  Metaxas covers questions about Jesus’ life — Did He live at all?, His death — If He truly was the Son of God, why did He have to die?, His resurrection – - Did Jesus really come back after death?, and much more.   Apologetics has never been so much fun!

PRAISE FOR Everything You Always Wanted to Know About God (but were afraid to ask)…

“For his stylish and entertaining treatment of this subject, Metaxas deserves a prize.” —DICK CAVETT

“I am absolutely smitten with this book! Easy (in the sense of moving right along) and fun to read, but packed with good stuff to chew on. I wanted to put every question and answer on file cards, so I could whip out the appropriate response when asked. And all with a wonderful sense of humor. Thank you, Eric, Thank you for writing this book! Every question in it I have asked, have heard asked, or want to ask! And the answers are so good humored and easy to read that you almost forget how profound they are.” —ANN B. DAVIS, Alice of “The Brady Bunch”

“The difficulty is not to gush. Eric has written a wise, funny, and disarming book, one which will, I’m sure, be handed around dorms, churches, and anywhere smart, curious people (both believers and unbelievers) can get their hands on it. We have had a tugging match with our own 21-year-old college student to see who gets to read it first in our house. We plan use it at Redeemer everywhere we can.” — TIM KELLER, pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church, NYC; New York Times Bestselling author of The Reason for God.

“Quick, witty, engaging, and often profound are words I use to describe my old friend and one-time colleague Eric Metaxas. This little book, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About God (But were Afraid to Ask) is vintage Metaxas. Good and profitable reading. — CHUCK COLSON, Founder of Prison Fellowship Ministries

“An excellent primer on the most important questions of life, engagingly presented in question-and answer format. A timely and useful book for a searching, spiritually hungry America.” — GEORGE GALLUP, JR., Founding Chairman of the George H. Gallup International Institute

Squanto and the Miracle of Thanksgiving Thomas Nelson (1999)

This entertaining and historical story shows that the actual hero of the Thanksgiving was neither white nor Indian, but God. In 1608, English traders came to Massachusetts and captured a 12-year old Indian, Squanto, and sold him into slavery. He was raised by Christians and taught faith in God. Ten years later he was sent home to America. Upon arrival, he learned an epidemic had wiped out his entire village. But God had plans for Squanto. God delivered a Thanksgiving miracle: an English-speaking Indian living in the exact place where the Pilgrims land in a strange new world.
