Storyline

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. Then Pat Robertson opens up the bible and explores what God says about these five questions. This very creative and thought-provoking program aired in January 1984 across the U.S. as a syndicated prime-time special, drawing 16 million viewers, the largest audience ever to watch an hour-long inspirational program. It ranked #1 in the Neilson ratings for its time slot. Written by Don White
