Queries and Quandries



In  American Christian Review readers will find both questions and answers printed side-by-side. Franklin was one of the first religious book publishers to use the question/answer format. Using this same format, readers will learn answers to some of the toughest questions asked by believers today.


After Franklin’s death, there was a call for a work to be produced from the pages of the venerable American Christian Review showing his wit and wisdom in dealing with some of the tough questions posed to him by his readers. This volume, Queries and Quandries, is a response to that call. In each issue of theReview, questions would be printed along with his answers. Although this is now a common practice by editors, Franklin was among the first to use this format to reach out to his readers. It is hoped that this small volume will bring that innovative sense to modern readers.
