Product Description

Product Description

Author Daniel K. Judd writes: 'The issues I have selected for inclusion in this book are representative of the difficult questions I have grappled with over the last several years in my work as a professor, a therapist, a bishop, a stake president, and a father.' Those 'hard questions' included: Is divorce the answer to a faltering marriage? Is anger a sin? What justifies and individual or nation to engage in armed conflict? How can I best understand those who are sexually attracted to the same sex? The author shows that the most meaningful answers to all our questions lie in the counsel of prophets and the miracles of the Atonement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 17 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Judd takes us through an expansive and edifying journey of ancient and modern scripture to assist in answering such difficult and often confusing questions. Not only has this book taught me and instructed me on the knowledge, but I have grown in understanding about personal scripture study. I hope this book continues to help other people as it has helped me.

This is a brilliant LDS insight to topics that you may not have thought to ask about. At the same time it provides opportunity for self-analysis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Living up to the name "Christian" 16 Oct 2011
By A. Clark - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Unlike C. Avery, I AM going to review the contents of this book, being that this is the reason for reviews on Amazon in the first place.

To C., and the others who did not read this book, "Hard Questions" is replete with teachings and examples from the Bible. Moses and Jethro, and Mary and Martha, were two examples used in the chapter on finding balance in life - a great subject for me and my family, and many others I know.

A chapter that I thought was interesting talks about if we can be angry and not sin. The use of Christ cleansing the temple seems to be a perfect example (it is covered from the perspective of each of the four gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), and the comment to "not get so angry you cannot pray" is one that has inspired me up many times since having read it.

Some of the other pertinent topics for our day are: Can a person who has been abused be healed, Is it possible to reconcile war with the teachings of Jesus Christ, and How can we find peace amidst adversity?

While most any book on this topic is one I have to try and stay awake while reading, "Hard Questions" uses stories and scriptures to keep it entertaining while explaining and supporting each topic, thus making it easier to read. If you are one who seeks to better understand and follow the teachings of Christ, there are treasures to be found here.

Many of C. Avery's followers said they did not read this book because it is not of the Bible, or something like that. The Bible says to hold fast to that which is good (Romans 12:9, 1 Thessalonians 5:21), and think on things that are true, lovely, of good report, etc (Philippians 4:8). So I wonder what kind of Christian ignores the teachings of Christ, or learning more of His word, because their imperfect hearts hold feelings of ill will toward the source. If it's of God, isn't He the source?

But rather than just listen to me, follow the Spirit when deciding what to read, and in discerning what is important for your life!

I found this book while I was in a tuff place. I skipped to the chapter that related to my situation. It was like getting advice from a friend who had done a lot of research and who cares about people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and Heartfelt 11 Oct 2011
By Dally - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Brother Judd has done an amazing job on this work! This book is truly a gem. He addresses many hard questions that many latter-day saints have probably asked themselves or pondered more than once. I know I have. The book truly shows all of the prayer, hard work, research, and truly seeking for answers to these questions which are posed. Brother Judd uses the words of scripture and of the modern prophets to answer the questions. From page one I felt the Spirit testifying of the truthfulness of these words. Truly a great addition to any LDS library, and it is one that I will go back to for answers in the future.
