Description - On God by Norman Mailer

oI see God,o wrote Norman Mailer, oas a Creator, as the greatest artist. I see human beings as His most developed artworks.o In these moving, amusing, and probing dialogues conducted in the years before his death, Mailer establishes his own system of belief, rejecting both organized religion and atheism. He avows that sensual pleasures were bestowed on us by God; he finds fault with the Ten Commandments; and he holds that technology was the Devil's most brilliant creation. In short, Mailer is original and unpredictable in this inspiring journey, in which oGod needs us as much as we need God.o a Praise for On God a o(Norman Mailer's) theology is not theoretical to him. After eight decades, it is what he believes. He expects no adherents, and does not profess to be a prophet, but he has worked to forge his beliefs into a coherent catechism.ouNew York a oThe glory of an original mind in full provocation.ouUSA Today a oAt once illuminating and exciting . . . a chance to see Mailer's intellect as well as his lively conversational style of speech.ouAmerican Jewish Life a oRemarkable . . . (Mailer's) a
