What’s Christianity about?

Got questions?

If you could ask God one question, and you knew it would be answered, what would it be?

Paul Williams and Barry Cooper have spent several years asking people that question. And inside their book [or in their videos], they reveal the results: the 12 most frequently asked questions about God.

But this isn’t just a book/film about questions. There are answers too. Answers from the lips of the most powerful, insightful and extraordinary figure in all of human history.
