If Todd's first book, Heaven Is for Real, was about the then and there of heaven, GOD IS FOR REAL is about the here and now on earth:
Why are there are so many hypocritical church people? Why do Christians make such a big deal about the cross? Why doesn't God seem to answer our biggest prayers?
People are tired of pat answers offered up in churchy language explaining away their questions; we want the down-and-dirty truth. What bothers us about life and faith is real and gritty. We need a plain-spoken voice to offer God's answers to difficult struggles and painful doubts.
Todd charges into these subjects with a fireman's courage, a small-town friend's vulnerability, and a local pastor's compassion. He helps articulate the questions people have, then gives them relevant biblical wisdom for taking their next steps in faith.
God is ready to meet you! Are you ready to meet Him?

"Here it is... tough questions that most people run around in their mind but are afraid to ask! The responses to these questions are not the typical pat answers. It is a powerful weave of personal experience, honest and authentic wrestling with the questions, and a fresh look at scripture to find the answers. I found myself quickly turning the page to the next... it is compelling, thoughtful, new insight, and made me love God even more."--Jo Anne Lyon, ambassador, general superintendent Emerita of The Wesleyan Church, and founder of World Hope International
