Overview

Dialogues on God: Three Views by John L. Hodge

Through a relatively congenial but frank interchange among three siblings, the dialogues highlight three very different ways of living and apprehending the universe. One sibling has a traditional view of God (traditional, that is, within a Christian/Judaic/Islamic context). One has a very different view of God. And one is an atheist. Their interchange reveals interconnections between their views about God and about politics, society, beauty, science, personal relationships, individuality, good and evil, and war and peace. This interchange among the three illustrates how very different views about God impact practically everything else.
But how can those with such conflicting views live together in the same community, the same society, the same world?
By challenging each other in eleven dialogues, the siblings, in spite of their conflicting views, come to a common realization and agreement. To find out what it is and to understand how they get there, read these dialogues.

About the Author

John L. Hodge (J.D., PhD.) has recently published "Dialogues on God: Three Views" (2012) and "How We Are Our Enemy--And How to Stop: Our Unfinished Task of Fulfilling the Values of Democracy" (2011). Both books address matters critical to the further growth of democracy--and the prevention of its backsliding. He also publishes his social and political blog on democracy, human rights and ethical values: JohnLHodge.blogspot.com.

In "Dialogues on God: Three Views," he addresses the question, How can people with radically different religious views, including atheism, live together peacefully in the same society? To find out the answer he proposes, read this concise book. Also see how different views of God affect all aspects of life.

In "How We Are Our Enemy--And How to Stop," he describes what the values of democracy are, their ethical foundation, and their personal, social and political implications. No nation today adequately expresses these values. He explains why the United States, in many respects, has retreated from them in recent years and is in danger of retreating further. He describes the steps that must be taken advance democracy, addressing (among other things) poverty, health care, women's rights, gay rights, affirmative action, voting rights, the death penalty, campaign contributions, and the separation of religion and government.

His books and other writings are the product of many years of seeking to understand and advance democratic values. Democracy is not a simple thing. It is something not fully achieved by any nation and remains as a goal to strive for. To get there, we must be clear about what the goal is.
