Product Description

This book takes on today's prevailing misconceptions about who God is by boldly stating who God is not. Rodney Clapp critiques pop culture's anthem to a slobby, ineffective "God like us," while D. Stephen Long, in "God Is Not Nice," questions our therapy-fed longing for a useful, non-threatening deity. If God is not an American or a capitalist or "religious," as contributors Michael Baxter, Mick Budde, and William T. Cavanaugh go on to argue, then who is God? Laytham concludes with a stirring essay on who God is, calling the church to visibly demonstrate where its primary allegiance lies. Audacious without being rude, this book is a lively, necessary, and intelligently reverent read.

    Laytham's book is very represenative of the ekklesia project and her mission. This book was one of the first to help me understand how blasphemous it is to describe God in our pop-culture language. For those who believe Jesus is your "homeboy" and for those who think God wears an American flag for a cape.... think again. God is above all that we try to impose on him. We need a new language to speak of God. The image we are forming of him is consistent with the spirit of the age but inconsistent with the Spirit of Christ. Laytham's book is an attempt to throw off all of those things which make God out to be less than the divine creator of the universe. The way we speak of God should reflect that our allegiance lies with the King and his Kingdom!
