Forty Loaves: Breaking Bread with Our Father Each Day is exactly my kind of book: it asks questions about faith and belief. It doesn't apologize, or try to gloss over the fact that we, as Christians, have real, honest, important questions. It's not one of those "just have faith and things will be perfect" preachy types of books (which I hate)... instead it probes the reader for a deeper understanding of his/her faith.
The book is broken down into very short chapters (typically 3-5 pages), making it perfect for a daily reflection time. (Though I must confess that I usually read more than one chapter at a sitting.) Each chapter addresses one particular area of faith, starting out with brief illustrations of people who are facing an issue in that area. The chapters are full of Bible references and each one ends with a related prayer.
I really enjoyed Forty Loaves: Breaking Bread with Our Father Each Day and would highly recommend it to any Christian.
