Hereís a challenging twist on the shopping-list type of prayer that many of us exploit. Try listening! Based on the red-letter edition of the Bible, The Red Letter Questions uses as its basis the questions Jesus asked his disciples, and still asks us. To name just a few: "Will you lay down your life for my sake?" "Do you love me more than these?" "Will you also go away?" "What do you reason in your hearts?" "Do you believe?" "Does this offend you?"
Drawing upon these questions, the author, Don Harris, personally meditates on the meanings, and provides his own insights and suggestions using further Scripture to back his ideas. The book revolves around the statements Jesus' Questions Work To: Perfect Us; Challenge Us Personally; and, Challenge Our Theology. A firm conclusion includes closing remarks and a listing of the questions. Within this framework Harris considers dedication, preparing for understanding, how to hear revelation, hindrances to hearing, faith, ministry, our concept of the Messiah, the Bible, faithful and wise stewards, and, finding real faith.
The author Don Harris is a Bible teacher and radio talk show host. After becoming disappointed with conventional Christianity, Harris left his work as an interdenominational pastor and traveled both physically and spiritually looking for the true Church. Eventually this led to his discovery of the forgotten Commandments and Ordinances of Jehovah, a revelation he feels most Christians do not have. He continues traveling far and wide teaching these lacking elements.
Listening and obedience certainly matures a Christian, drawing him every closer to the Lord. Much of what is written in this book is well worth pondering. However, the authorís own opinions form a very large part of the information and must be carefully considered with Christian maturity. Donna Eggett, ChristianBookPreviews.com

These are the heartfelt thoughts of a man who, through traditional misinterpretation of Scripture, inadvertently disobeyed the God he claimed to love and serve. The traditions of men and false assumptions which find their way into everyday life were discovered and dealt with one by one through these poignant red letter questions.
