Brian McLaren said about this book: "This book is absolutely amazing. It will have a deep effect on all Christians who read but it will be much more widely read than simply the Christian world. Without losing any depth, it is personal, powerfully coherent, and complete. I also think this could be a huge seller not only among religious people, but also among the skeptics. I am a raving fan of this book."
Millions of us look at religion--in whatever form--and just say, "No thanks, I'd rather be spiritual than religious." For those of us who feel that way, religion isn't just ugly, it's irrelevant and lifeless. And, we think, too many of its adherents are repulsive--who wants to be like them? But our departure from religion leaves us to our own devices, wandering around trying to figure out what it means to be spiritual, how to relate to God (whoever God is), what to believe or not believe, how to find some sort of community to help it all make sense.
Do we really have to abandon religion? Is it really beyond hope and redemption? "It's Really All About God" gives us a very personal exploration of a radically different way to hold religion that is life-giving, that blesses us and those around us, regardless of our tradition.
