About the Book:
“Why don’t I have more faith?”

“Why am I so bored with Jesus?”

“Why are Christians so hard for me to like?”

There are many questions we’re not supposed to ask when playing by the religious rules. It makes people uncomfortable. So why is it that Jesus invited questions and even asked some of them himself? What is it that you’re afraid to ask God? It’s a risky prospect to begin asking–but far riskier to continue simply trying to get by without knowing. Author C. D. Baker asked himself 40 soul-searching questions which started a conversation in his heart and ultimately showed him more about God than He ever expected.

Can we become more honest with who we really are and find who God says He really is at the same time? Come indulge yourself in daily readings with an honest exploration of your secret fears and thoughts, and know that you will always be welcomed in God’s unconditional love.

Search me, O God … and know my anxious thoughts.

–Psalm 139:23 NIV

About the author:
C.David Baker lives on a small farm with his wife, Susan. He is the descendant of German and Scottish immigrants, many of whom arrived in Pennsylvania in the early 1700’s. His family tree is an interesting assortment of Mennonite, Reformed, and Presbyterian families including such notables as Adam Neff–the flag bearer who stood by Zwingli as he died in the battle of Kappel, William Rittenhouse–the first American paper maker, and William Penn’s Dutch mother. Nine of his ancestors served in the Bucks County militia during the American Revolution.

The father of two sons, Baker founded an award winning business which he sold to pursue his writing career. For the past fifteen years, research for his books has taken him throughout Great Britain and Europe, including a journey which followed the route of the tragic Children’s Crusade as presented in his Journey of Souls trilogy. Research interviews have included a variety of fascinating people including Manfred Rommel, son of the German Fieldmarshal, and Johann Voss, author and veteran of the Waffen-SS both of whom contributed much to Baker’s Seduction of Eva Volk.

In addition, he has been a regional seminar presenter for the insurance industry, an elected school board director (public and private) and involved with community environmental activities such as land preservation. But failure has been part of his life as well. It has been these deep valleys that have led David to the well of Grace from which the essence of his writing is drawn.
