Being asked to prove that you know God seems to be nearly impossible when you first are asked to prove it, but Margaret Weston in How Do I Know I Know God? does an excellent job of laying out a decisive answer. Margaret opens each chapter with a dialogue, similar to that which Socrates used in his discussions, and then after each, shows the biblical references which coincide with the discussion in a way that anyone could understand. In the first part of the book, Margaret discusses the evidence that has been given to us through history and scripture and in the second part she gives personal testimony to her own relationship with God through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Each chapter zeroes in on answering specific questions related to God’s existence as He revealed Himself in His creation, as well as through His written word, but it goes deeper into the evidence collaborated by witnesses, of which Margaret is one.

Being able to explain how you know God often strikes a Christian with a sudden profound silence or something which is similar to how a mother answers a toddler when he asks why. However, in How I know I know God? Margaret Weston helps to provide ready answers to that question. By beginning each chapter with a dialogue, she helps the Christian who is struggling to answer the question to take a step by step approach by answering each part of the question, rather than trying to answer the big question. The biblical references are well placed and come straight to the point and the personal testimony backs up the promise that God would indeed be with those who are called by His name. Profound, encouraging and practical, How I Know I Know God? is an easy to read guide that will help you be able to better explain how you know God to anyone who asks.
