Publisher Description

My Logical God is not just a book about God, nor is it just a book about life. It is a book about how an entirely different perspective of God changes our life. Most of us have been told that God is perfect but taught about an imperfect god. The author teaches us about how belief in a truly perfect god changes every aspect of our lives.

The first two chapters are almost exclusively about the difference between a perfect god and the god of our teachings. The author very candidly points out that we are told God is perfect and then taught about God's theoretical desires and expectations (sin, the Ten Commandments etc.). The only way God can want is if God lacks whatever God theoretically wants and if God lacks God is not perfect. His logic doesn't stop there and by the end of the second chapter you feel like slapping your forehead with the palm of your hand while thinking, "Why didn't I think of that?" From the third chapter on, God tends to play more of a background role and a different approach to life is brought to the forefront. This is presented in a compassionate way as to offer his perspective without imposing it. Ron teaches us to communicate with God instead of praying to God and after reading his Conversation with Jesus chapter you can't help but think he might be on to something. As if the Jesus chapter leaving you speechless wasn't enough, he immediately delves into the Bible which will probably leave you dumbfounded. He even presents the very intriguing proposition that the god of Moses might not be the god of Jesus and legitimizes his curiosity by some very convincing Biblical passages. After these couple of hard hitting chapters the author very compassionately moves into our day to day challenges with parenting, relationships, sex, the beauty of same sex love and offers unique perspectives on all of it. All of the while a perfect god is subtly woven into the background of each topic. You will probably have a whole new appreciation and understanding for the phrase "Karma's a bitch," after the Reincarnation chapter. The Universe and Creator chapters might leave you scratching your head a bit, but not in a bad way. Both chapters are very convincing but the concepts are so unique and different it takes a while to wrap your mind around them. It all knits together beautifully though. Ron somehow leaves organized religion and the Bible behind but maintains a beautiful relationship with Jesus. After reading the Conclusion you can't help but want to start on your own path of awareness ... or it will leave you wondering if you just found it.

If you are of firm Religious faith or rigid with your current perspectives this read is probably not for you but if you are of the mindset that religion no longer works for you, but the concept of God still does this book is right up your alley.
