Item Description...
"In all aspects of life--scientific, sociological, political, cultural, ethical, psychological--we no longer express ourselves nor understand our world as our forebears did even a hundred years ago. Yet we are expected to believe in and worship a God with concepts that have remained unchanged since the Middle Ages. Hence the sense of unreality about God, about religion, about the Church." So begins Adrian Smith's insightful and challenging book which argues that our very idea of God must be changed and brought up to date. Smith, who is a retired Catholic missionary priest, examines thirteen factors in our contemporary life which he believes require a shift in our perception of God--a shift which will ultimately make the reality of God central to our lives again. Smith believes that the Western world is becoming less and less religious but more and more spiritual, and that increasingly people no longer look to the traditional Churches for spiritual nourishment. It is to these people that Adrian Smith offers this book. He offers "a compass which I hope will assist spiritual explorers in the Christian tradition to locate where they are on their journey..."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good message, excessive at times  Apr 30, 2006
The book has the basic message that God lives within all of us as well as beyond us, and that we understand him through our human experiences. This "new" perception of the ultimate mystery is a good perception and explained well in the book.

The author up front states that his material is not peer reviewed nor backed up by lots of references, and is basically his own thoughts unchallenged. While I appreciated the disclaimer, this also caused the book to go too far at times (in my opinion). For example, he threw out unsubstantiated claims that groups of people praying were shown scientifically to change the accident rate in a geographic locality. Other similar "consciouness power" experiments are mentioned, but no reference is given. I found this very hard to believe and dismiss it straight away without any sort of reference. The parts of the book I couldn't really accept are those that started talking of other dimensions of our consciousness being linked together with humans (basically ESP, mind control, etc). If those parts were cut out, I'd probably give this a 5-star.

Overall a good book to read if you're questioning Christianity (and really any similar religion) in today's world, and doubting it's basis.

I was really surprised that the author was a Catholic missionary priest, because he gives the impression that he disagrees with a lot of religious aspects (or thinks they get in the way), especially Catholicism. He believes the bible is not the word of god, but just human understanding at the given time, sure to give some strong believers pain.
