Embedding Questions in Home Page?

Hi, I would like to have the list of questions on the home page of my site but the only way I have found to make this possible is to redirect the homepage to the questions page via a custom field. Also, in order for the title to display as Home I had to edit the core.php file in the Q & A plugin folder. If I could just use a shortcode or even use some PHP code to insert the most recent questions (or any variation of) into a normal page it would help me out a lot. If not, any tips for making a custom template that calls the questions loop?

Thanks,

John
