Questions God Asks {a New Leaf Publishing Group review}
Recently, I've been reading an ebook, Questions God Asks: Unlocking the Wisdom of Eternity.  I found it to be completely fascinating reading.

The basic premise is that Israel Wayne has written a chapter addressing the questions GOD asks -- because "when God asks questions they are meant for our edification."

From the New Leaf Press, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group:
God knows all things. Yet, as strange as it may seem to us, the Bible is filled with questions that God asks. These questions assist us in understanding both our Maker and ourselves. Examine fundamental assumptions about God, human nature, relationships, origins, purpose and destiny in this revealing book. Stop demanding answers from God and begin answering the questions He asks of us.
I expected to find the book interesting.  It was. But it was more than that.  I really loved reading through this and thinking about things.  The questions were made very personal, and now I find myself reading the Bible differently too.  I can't read the stories, and hear the questions being asked, and not think about what God is asking me.

Then there were parts that I found just laugh-out-loud funny.  In the chapter where God asks Eli, "Why Do You Honor Your Sons More than Me?" you read about Samuel and how after watching Eli and his sons, you'd think Samuel would have picked up some parenting tips, yet Samuel's sons had pretty lousy reputations as well.  It goes on to say, "Samuel anointed the young king David, who as a child doubtless saw Samuel's sons on the covers of the tabloids at the Bethlehem grocery store."  That image struck me as funny... but true, in a way.  David, of course, didn't do better in parenting his sons.
