God: A Companion for Seekers

"I am that I am," is the Old Testament quoting God directly. "God is love," says the New Testament. "God is a verb," counters Buckminster Fuller. "God is dead," claimed Nietzsche.

Overview


"I am that I am," is the Old Testament quoting God directly. "God is love," says the New Testament. "God is a verb," counters Buckminster Fuller. "God is dead," claimed Nietzsche. And then there's Picasso: "God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant, and the cat. He has no real style. He just goes on trying other things." What are we to make of this?

Compiled and edited by the author of the bestselling The Little Zen Companion and The Little Book of Prayers, God is a collection of the most compelling, surprising, witty, interesting, paradoxical, and passionate things people through the centuries have thought and said about God. It is about God's presence and God's absence, God's essence and God's attributes, God's actions and God's indifference--even God's names (in Islam there are 99 of them, while in the Jewish tradition God's name cannot even be written).

Each page inspires, enlightens, provokes, reassures. Quotes come from scripture and religious leaders, philosophers and mystics, writers, artists, poets, Zen free spirits and scientists, and anonymous graffiti writers. Eclectic and ecumenical, it is a seeker's palm-sized miscellany celebrating the ineffable.
