The search for the meaning and purpose of life has been mankind’s desire from the beginning of time. What is the meaning of life and why am I here? If God exists, why does life hurt so much? What happens when I die?
At Living Dialogue Ministries we would like to introduce you to a booklet called Answers to Life’s Basic Questions , that can provide answers to 12 basic questions that young or new Christians and emerging adults may have about life, its meaning and the role faith plays in their lives.
The 12 questions compiled in the booklet came from the hearts and minds of young people as they were asked to the caring youth pastors, senior pastors, coaches and adult lay ministers we surveyed. Our ministerial contributors have now prayed about their questions and biblically answered each with Bible references for the questions asked. Like This one:
A. God made people to love him with all their hearts, minds and souls and to love each other in the same way as we love ourselves. We were created foremost to bring glory to God, to be in right relationship to him and to worship him. We are here on earth to grow physically, mentally and spiritually. For those who are Christians, life means honoring God with your life, your work and through the enjoyment of God’s presence. God’s presence comes through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Life’s greatest adventure, beyond what you could ever dream or imagine, is to discover God’s exciting plan for your life and to pursue it with a passion.
“But he’s already made it plain how to live, what to do, what God is looking for in men and women. It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor, be compassionate and loyal in your love. And don’t take yourself too seriously— take God seriously.” Micah 6:8.
You may also be seeking understanding about some of the promises, mysteries and prophecies of the Bible. You will find that many of those topics are addressed in this book. On the other hand, you may want to know what God has to say about 21st-century cultural issues that impact human behavior and relationships; i.e., traditional marriage, truth and tolerance. Or, you might want to know the biblical worldview of creation, evolution, sin, heaven, hell and end-times events. These topics and more are addressed in the book’s 12 chapters.
This booklet is a tool that can be used by organizations and individuals looking to begin or promote a spiritual transformation in the following ways:
OUTREACH Provide the gospel of salvation of Jesus Christ into peoples’ hands in an interesting and easy-to-read format. Utilize Life’s Basic Questions as a call-to-action for all of those in need throughout your community.

After you make a connection and someone you know has made a profession of faith. What better way to help them acknowledge their first step then with a small gift booklet of answers to the basic questions of a faith journey.

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12
