God is a verb, counters Buckminster Fuller. God is dead, claimed Nietzsche. And then theres Picasso: God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant, and the cat. He has no real style. He just goes on trying other things. What are we to make of this?Compiled and edited by the author of the bestselling The Little Zen Companion and The Little Book of Prayers, God is a collection of the most compelling, surprising, witty, interesting, paradoxical, and passionate things people through the centuries have thought and said about God. It is about Gods presence and Gods absence, Gods essence and Gods attributes, Gods actions and Gods indifference--even Gods names (in Islam there are 99 of them, while in the Jewish tradition Gods name cannot even be written).Each page inspires, enlightens, provokes, reassures. Quotes come from scripture and religious leaders, philosophers and mystics, writers, artists, poets, Zen free spirits and scientists, and anonymous graffiti writers. Eclectic and ecumenical, it is a seekers palm-sized miscellany celebrating the ineffable.
