This is a powerful song for me that my Father used to reflect on his faith in his final days with us. My Mother discovered it while studying Leonard Sweet who has a book by the same title.
Leonard Sweet sums it up by writing – “How did we get the point, but miss the Person? Christianity wasn’t founded on a proposition. God sent Jesus to deliver a proposal: “Will you love me? Will you let me love you?” Propositions inform us, but God’s proposal of love in Jesus transforms us. God doesn’t answer every question, God invites us into a mystery. God’s proposal of love is truly Out of the Question…Into the Mystery. “Faith is not simply a decision that is made or a commitment that is promised… Rather, faith is a new life that we practice. And that life is practiced in the context of relationship.”

“Out of the Question” by David Wilcox
