How would your life change if you flipped your understanding of God?
Doug Pagitt takes a new look at provocative statements made by Jesus, Paul, and the prophets. Jesus turned the tables on religious assumptions every time he began with “You have heard it said, but I say to you…” Paul quoted a pagan poet when he revealed the truth that we live, move, and have our being in God.
Come along on a journey of discovery and change, leading to a flip in your view of where God is and where we are in relation to God. Set aside the rules of religion and know the freedom of living in God.

Doug Pagitt challenges you to think about God here, one in whom "we live and move and have our being." I have to admit I think the force of this book doesn't hit you until after you read it, as you digest it's meaning.
