Explore three basic questions of faith that have profound, life-changing answers.

Rueben P. Job, author of Three Simple Rules, brings us a new insight on how to live a Christ-like life and explores the three most basic and profound questions at the center of our faith—questions that all major religions try to answer and around which there seems to be much confusion:

Who is God?
Who am I?
Who are we together?

In three brief and engaging chapters, readers will explore these questions and gain new understanding of the answers:

Know that God is greater than you can imagine
Believe that you are God's beloved child
Be the love of Christ in the world

They will also discover the greatness and goodness of God, the value of every beloved child of God, and the impact we can have in the world when we live as Jesus lived.

Each chapter concludes with a simple spiritual practice to help readers remember and respond to what they have read, followed by a prayer.

Now it is time for you to know, believe and become the answers.

In its first paragraphs, Three Simple Questions triggered my hunger for hope. I hung on each word thereafter. By the time I finished my reading, I was filled to overflowing. I was drawn deeper by the notion of a God too small. Prayer as the place where we receive our identity was profound. I cheered with the truth that God loves all. I was intrigued by the imagery of my being a “holy chalice.” The three daily practices are refreshing and engaging. In short, the read filled me with grace. —Bishop Sharon Brown Christopher
