A Fresh Look at God describes the spiritual journey of the author as he tries to reconcile the confusing picture of God derived from traditional Judeo-Christian sources with what reason suggests God must really be like. He makes the case for a God who is more parental than judgmental, more loving than angry, more personal than remote, and more understandable than mysterious.
This book challenges many conventional and orthodox Christian beliefs. The results are some new thoughts about the will of God, some limitations of God, the definition of sin, how to pray to God, what the afterlife may be, how to read the Bible, and a new set of commandments.
The author sets up a new framework for a lifelong—and in the hereafter—relationship with God that has real meaning in the modern world.
