Most Christians are familiar with only a few selected verses of the Bible that are repeated endlessly without much understanding. The Promise of Heaven points out the lesser-known dark and morbid aspects of the Bible that congregations never hear from religious leaders. Alexander Bless asks controversial questions for believers as well as non-believers to consider.

-What was God doing before creation?

If God created everything out of nothing (Gen.1:1) did he exist in the middle of nothing?

Was He the only "something" in nothing?

-In the flood story God destroyed humans as punishment for their sins. Why did He also destroy animals?

-Why did God create humans with all their human failings and then punish them for it?

-Why do you have to fear God?

How can you love God if you fear Him?

Curiosity is a natural instinct of mankind that drives it to learn and to progress. Paul says in I.Corin.13: 11(DRB) "When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child. But, when I became a man, I put away the things of a child."
