“Don’t Ask Me, Ask God” (January, 1984)

BRIEF PROGRAM SYNOPSIS

A 1981 U.S. Gallop Poll asked Americans, “If you could ask God any question, what would it be?” “Don’t Ask Me, Ask God” takes the top five questions from that survey and analyzes them from both intellectual and biblical perspectives. The questions are: What does the future hold for me and my family? Why is there suffering in the world? Why is there evil in the world? Will man ever love his fellow man? Will there ever be lasting world peace? Is there life after death? These questions are analyzed using creative dramatic vignettes followed by interviews from leading experts in their field – Synopsis by Don White from the IMDB
