From the Author:
My God is kind, compassionate, merciful, and he loves me. Yet, there are questions that arise; there are accounts of God that seem contradictory to my simplicity, and there are accusations against God that can leave me struggling for an explanation. At times I've been confused by the concept of God's love and the reality of life, and there often existed a dichotomy between the two.
I wrote this book after numerous conversations with friends who, regardless of their spiritual journey have experienced similar thoughts, or have simply ignored some of the hard questions of life and faith.
Common societal thinking in many areas is moving towards a position where people regard God as an outdated fairy-tale with a sinister undertone leading to apathy or resentment towards God. This is far removed from my notion of a living and loving God who is kind, compassionate and merciful.
Embarking on my personal journey of discovering God's reputation, I have a hunch that I'm not alone. I need to explore God and find comfort with the answer.
Would you join me on this journey of discovery? Maybe all the dots haven't been joined, and some of the joined dots remain open to interpretation, yet the line I've used to join the dots is what I know of the underlying nature and character of God.
