Many today may see the relationship between God and humanity as one of passive submission and thus unquestioning. Two outstanding Dominicans, Timothy Radcliffe and Lukasz Popko. suggest otherwise. Questioning God explores Biblical conversations with God and there is no genuine conversation without true questions. Our God question us, from the first conversation of God and humanity in the Bible, where God asks Adam, 'Where are you?', to the Risen Lord's questioning Peter on the beach: 'Do you love me more than these others?' But humanity questions God too, as in the audacious questioning of Jesus by the Samaritan woman at the well. In this process of mutual questioning, humanity is drawn ever deeper into the life of God, the eternal conversation of the Trinity. Insights into these transformative conversations are helpful as the Church questions how to be faithful to God in this uncertain time. Fr Popko offers a fresh translation and insights of Biblical scholarship, and Fr Radcliffe extends his rich experience as a preacher, theologian, and an inspiring commentator.

Timothy Radcliffe, Lukasz Popko

A former Master of the world-wide Dominican Order, Timothy Radcliffe is now based in Oxford but spends much of his year giving retreats, lectures and conference key-note addresses in the UK and overseas. He was the winner of the 2007 Michael Ramsey prize for theological writing for his book What is the Point of Being a Christian?. He was the author of The Archbishop of Canterbury's 2009 Lent Book Why Go to Church? His other books include Alive in God, Take the Plunge and I Call You Friends, all published by Bloomsbury Continuum. Lukasz Popko is a Biblical scholar. Polish by birth, a Dominican preacher, lives in Jerusalem where he teaches the Old Testament and ancient history at the French Biblical and Archaeological School (Ecole Biblique). He is also the editorial director of The Bible in Its Traditions project. His present and main research project is the critical edition of the Book of Kings of the Hebrew Bible.
