Questions of Life

Nicky Gumbel

Exploring the Christian Faith

From Why am I here? to What’s next? In this international bestseller, Alpha pioneer Nicky Gumbel addresses some of the foundational questions that challenge us all.

Questions of Life is a step-by-step guide to the basics of the Christian faith by one of the world’s most respected Christian leaders. This book explores key themes, questions and objections to faith, leading us on an engaging, personal journey of discovery.

The book’s 15 chapters reflect each one of the Alpha Course’s sessions:

  1. Is there more to life than this?
  2. Who is Jesus?
  3. Why did Jesus die?
  4. How can we have faith?
  5. Why and how do I pray?
  6. Why and how should I read the Bible?
  7. How does God guide us?
  8. Who is the Holy Spirit?
  9. What does the Holy Spirit do?
  10. How can I be filled with the Holy Spirit?
  11. How can I resist evil?
  12. Why and how should I tell others?
  13. Does God heal today?
  14. What about the church?
  15. How can I make the most of the rest of my life?

Please note: in the Alpha Course chapter 15 (How can I make the most of the rest of my life?) is often moved to be session 11, with chapters 11-14 of the book becoming sessions 12-15.

Many of the chapters are also available to purchase as individual booklets.  The whole book is also available as an ebook.

Illustrations throughout the book are by Charlie Mackesy.
