God the What? by Carolyn Jane Bohler
Book DescriptionThis provocative book challenges the current press God gets by blowing the lid off conventional God-descriptors. How, for example, might "God the Caring Daddy" be different from the traditional "God the Heavenly Father"? Believing that expansive metaphors for God expand our experience of God, Carolyn Jane Bohler nudges readers to consider a wide, imaginative range of images, such as God the Jazz Band Leader, God the Divine Blacksmith, God the Divine Physical Therapist, God the Choreographer of Chaos, God the Nursing Mother or God the Team Transformer. Using playful images and moving stories, supported by solid scholarship, Bohler challenges readers to explore new names for God that are not only more consistent with what they believe about God, but will, also, deepen their experience of God. Wonderfully challenging, fresh, down-to-earth, this book breaks open habits and assumptions. Bohler taps into readers' God-given ability to re-imagine God. Excellent for personal reflection or church group discussion and substantial enough to serve as a text for religious study or theology courses, this book will reach across a spectrum of beliefs and faiths.
