Give the gift of intimacy with God this Christmas, with a free copy of Questions for Jesus, courtesy of Coach22. Written in a devotional format, this book takes heart-level conversation with Jesus to a new level.

Questions for Jesus shows how Jesus spoke to the deepest desires of those he met--and how he can do the same for you. Instead of always praying about the business of being a Christian ("God,what do you want me to do?"), learn to pray about the relationship ("Jesus, what do you like best about me?"). Built around 52 passages in Matthew where Jesus touches desires, each meditation offers five powerful, heart-level questions that will help you enter into the passage and receive what your heart most longs to hear. As one reader said, "This is the the relationship with God I always wanted!"

How to Ask Great Questions
by Karen Lee Thorp
71 pages

Read an In-Depth Review

This short, practical volume offers a wealth of great tips and techniques for constructing excellent coaching questions. While not a coaching book per se (it is targeted at small group coaches or leaders), How to Ask Great Questions covers quite a few of the bread and butter asking techniques coaches use: open and closed questions, probing questions, asking about what's significant, and bringing out people's inner thoughts and true feelings.

The best feature of the book is that it includes example after example of great questions created for specific scenarios or situations. Any coach (and especially beginners, coaches in training or small group coaches) could benefit from having How to Ask Great Questions handy.
