As this book affirms, god continues to be the great conundrum, the great mystery, the great challenge of human existence. Paradoxically, while people have long claimed to doubt the existence of God, God is still the most important reality in the world. While many, in recent decades, have wanted to cease using the term God, the author prefers to not relinquish the term because, “for me, along with Martin Buber, it bears too great and complex a meaning and has too many sacred associations.” As an expression of Progressive Christianity, this book invites people to move beyond the God of supernatural theism, the God in the sky, the God of antiquity and the three-tiered universe. The conception of God presented in this book sees God as the great MORE of the universe, more than anything we can say, think, or conceive about God. God is understood mostly as Spirit, but also as infinite love and energy, abiding presence and endless mystery.
