Have you read the book? I loved it. It moved me and gave me a new perspective of God and Jesus and how I can relate to Him/Them. It also helped me have a closer relationship to Jesus by giving me a different perspective than I have had in the past. I don’t think it goes against the Bible to visualize God in different ways that help us to relate deeper with Him. If it just so happens to be a large black woman, so be it. I don’t think that minimizes His power or who He is. It also has to be read knowing that it is fiction and not a true story (this isn’t totally clear from the book). I think that’s all I can say (especially since it’s past my bedtime). I highly recommend the book and would love to hear what you think about it.

i haven’t read it.. but i might now.
dr. youssef’s article is pretty interesting. he seems to say that the book has a universalist slant to it rather than a purely Christian one.
one question – was this an Oprah Book Club book??

I don’t think so. It would think it’s too spiritual for her. Since she believes in self and not Christ to make things work in this world. Halee just got a copy, so I would love to get more people’s input on this book.
