Reimagining the way you relate to God. Author also of the Divine Commodity. This book describes the difference between life under, over, from and for God vs. life with God. The purpose of this book is to encourage all of us to start living in communion with God. There are discussion questions and notes on the research materials, including Biblical references. He makes his descriptions very clear, however, some at first may confuse his definition of life under God and how it is different than how some view the United States as "one nation under God." The simple line illustrations throughout the book can be a bit distracting, but I understand his point in including them.
The author is right to start at the beginning to describe the fall of man and how the human condition came to be. I would recommend this book to Christians wanting to have a deeper relationship with God, along with those that are new to Christianinity and want to know more.
The author is the managing editor of Leadership Journal, a respected Christian publication in itself, and also writes a blog SKYEBOX.
