  • " is a jewel box of Christian wisdom, shiningwith Dr. Alvin Rogness's pastoral clarity. Mature believers andyoung seekers together may let the light of these reflectionsillumine your lives with God's gentle strength."
    — David L. Tiede, President Emeritus of Luther Seminary

    ...For Dad, the matters of faith were always a give-and-take between truths we held and questions that swirled. Dad's study was a room of warmth in our house, not simply because of the ever-present pipe smoke, but because the minute any of us would wander in and plop ourselves down on the couch, he was ours, ready to muse and listen and wonder with us. This was the faith—the questions and mystery and unknown-ness of it.... So it's fitting this little volume is written largely in question-and-answer format. A lively faith is never doctrinaire, but is always made up of a healthy amount of both questions and answers.
