Product Description

Like an ancient myth in its poetic text and vibrant illustrations, this modern fable about the search for God's name celebrates the diversity and, at the same time, the unity of all the people of the world. Each seeker claims he or she alone knows the answer. Finally, they come together and learn what God's name really is, sharing the ultimate harmony of belief in one God by people of all faiths, all backgrounds. Recommended for ages 4 to 8.

    I'm writing this brief review to counter the negative ones found below. I'm saddened to see such blind fundamentalism tolerated in these reviews. They exhibit the readers' spiritual egoism more than their deep wrestling with the content of this book. So I hope the audience browsing the reviews and descriptions of this book and the others like it in CBD's catalog will distance themselves from the hatred expressed towards "New Age" ideas (that is just a blanket label for new ideas in religion/spirituality, such as Jesus' idea in his day that God loves you!) and instead allow themselves to encounter the truly universalistic impulse found in this book. Here one will find appreciation for the various ways in which human beings relate to God and each others through the words they ascribe to the epicenter of reality. It shows how we in our selfishness want to say "my way/name for God is best!" (thank you reviewers NanaP and shelly), and how through intimate opportunities, we can overcome this short-sightedness and be united with one another. It's the kind of literature I will be steering my children towards in an effort to spare them the bigotry that exclusive religion and theology inevitably seems to spawn. Thank you CBD for carrying this book!

    Agree with the previous reviewer; I'm cataloging our church library and have removed this book from our collection.Sample text from the book:"All the people called God by different names. They tried to tell one another that their name was the best, the only name for God, and that all other names were wrong. But no one listened. Least of all, God." ... it concludes with "At that moment, the people knew that all the names for God were good, and no name was better than another. Then all at once their voices came together and they called God 'One.' Everyone listened. Most of all, God."This is universalism. The various religions have sharply differing conceptions of God. The Bible clearly states that there is only one way to God, through the atoning death and resurrection of Jesus. Jesus did not say, "There are many paths up the mountain, and they all lead to the same place." He said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."The beautiful illustrations of this book and the warm fuzzy ideas are misleading. This is not a book for Christians.CBD, please remove this book from your catalog.

    Do not use this book, God is not whatever we want Him to be. this book speaks of that God is different to each person, very new age, I am disappointed that CBD even carries this book.
