This is one of a series by Gloria


Wm Edwin Jacobs

Life is full of questions.  Some are easy, like “What are we going to have for dinner?”  while others, like “Why is God silent and invisible?” bewilder us.  Answers to Unanswered Questions of Life and Religion deals with the latter category – questions of life and religion – in a straightforward and easy-to-understand format.

The 28 questions addressed in the book were some of the most frequently asked during the author’s career as a minister of several churches, and the Rev. Dr. Wm. Edwin Jacobs, who holds both a Master and Doctor Degree in Divinity from Vanderbilt University, is well qualified to answer them.

In his introduction, Rev. Jacobs explains that in this day and age, some people no longer agonize over the critical questions of life.  “Evidently some think that to have a definite answer might be offensive to people of a different persuasion, or to those who have no answer at all,” he says.  But for many people, both in and out of the church, answers to critical questions meet a deep personal need, so he tackles this seemingly insurmountable task with an honest, no nonsense approach from a Christian perspective.

Each chapter begins with a thought-provoking quotation and then moves directly to the heart of the matter:  the questions, the evidence, and the answer.  Rev. Jacobs doesn’t give answers based merely on opinion, but in all cases, supports his conclusions with scriptural, and often historical, evidence.  Some of the questions are ethical in nature, such as “Does a person have a right of self-defense?” while others, like “What constitutes saving faith?” are strictly spiritual.

Whether you agree with Rev. Jacob’s conclusions or not, two things are certain:  these questions and the search for their answers are an integral part of the human experience, and this book is a rich feast of food for thought.

Wm. Edwin Jacobs is originally from Indianapolis, Indiana.  After serving in the U.S. Air Force, including one year (1955) in Japan during the extended period of the Korean Conflict, he received his Bachelor of Arts Degree magna cum laude in 1960 from Milligan College, the Master of Divinity Degree from Vanderbilt University in 1976, and the Doctor of Ministry Degree from Vanderbilt in 1978.  The middler year of the Master of Divinity Degree was at the St. Meinrad School of Theology at the Benedictine Archabbey of St. Meinrad.

In 1976 he was ordained to the ministry by the Christian Church (D.O.C.) in Kentucky, and served churches in Kentucky, Indiana, Florida, and Illinois – where he retired January 31, 2000 after serving over five years at a church.  He was married in 1984 and they have one daughter, they continue to reside in Illinois.  Edwin served from September 2002 to September 2005 as a volunteer chaplain in the Civil Air Patrol with the rank of captain.
