“The MADE HARDER books will give readers a feel for how scripture actually suggests questions about itself. More importantly, Faulconer reminds us that scripture also engages us, calls to us, and not merely the other way around. When we read scripture through questioning we make ourselves available for scripture to question us in return.”
—Jacob T. Baker, editor of Mormonism at the Crossroads of Philosophy and Theology
"Faulconer's style of questioning is an unquestionably effective use of the Socratic method in which students, led by the questions of a master teacher, learn truth through their own efforts of gathering information and drawing conclusions. The use of this teaching style within a gospel context is an ingenious method of guiding at-home scripture study, helping learners draw very personalized conclusions and grow more meaningful testimony. It's so effective...a standout in the scores of books published about gospel study in the home."
