Description

The understanding of God that many Christians insist is so clear in the Bible makes faith seem like an all-or-nothing proposition. When much of that rigid projection seems in doubt, it's not surprising that many people leave behind this take-it-or-leave-it religion. Pastor Mark Feldmeir offers an introduction to a God that many people weren't aware existed—a mysterious, uncontainable, still-active God who loves and cares for real people with real problems. Life after God offers glimpses of the ineffable God, who can emerge when we forget what we think we're supposed to believe about God and open us up to the mystery, wonder, and compelling love we crave.

Reviews

"I am among the millions for whom traditional ways of thinking and talking about God have stopped working. For a while, I wondered if that meant I had to become an atheist or agnostic. But Life after God has helped me see that my problem isn’t with God but only with some ways of thinking of God that used to help people but now actually hurt people. I love this book, and I think you will too." - Brian D. McLaren, author of Do I Stay Christian?: A Guide for the Doubters, the Disappointed, and the Disillusioned

"Whether or whatever you ‘believe,’ this is one riveting read. As Life after God tugs you irresistibly into the question—into the whole tangle of doctrines and doubts, of pious pretense and painful honesty—you may find yourself in wondrous company. Amazing theological company!" - Catherine Keller, George T. Cobb Professor of Constructive Theology, Drew Theological School, and author of Facing Apocalypse: Climate, Democracy, and Other Last Chances

"In Life after God, Feldmeir paints a compelling portrait of a God expansive enough to entertain our concerns about the death of the universe and molten enough to adjust to the praying person’s changing contours of heart and soul. Life after God is for Christians and Jesus-curious people who are skeptical of the conventional Christian God whose enemies and biases are no different from their own." - Broderick Greer, canon precentor, St. John’s Cathedral, Denver, Colorado, and curator of the Mile High Theology podcast

"This book is hard to put down; it holds readers with vivid stories of human reality and enduring theological questions. Sharing his own struggles and those of countless others, Feldmeir recognizes the challenges in religious believing and traveling with God, and offers rich insights in theology, philosophy, and literature." - Mary Elizabeth Moore, Dean Emerita and Professor Emerita of Theology and Education, Boston University School of Theology
