This book has its roots in a very traditional understanding of God. In theological jargon, its about Gods omnipresence; God being everywhere. Because God is everywhere, we are, wherever we are, in God. It shouldnt, therefore, be difficult to believe in God. We dont have to struggle to get our head around impossible questions. We are already in God; so belief isnt like taking an exam, its like taking a bath. We need to learn to relax and let ourselves be revived in Gods presence. But looking more closely at what we find ourselves to be in, (including life, luck, love and person) the implications for our understanding of God are shocking and revolutionary. Here is a radical orthodoxy to give confidence to those who have given up on the fundamentalist expressions of faith that dominate the church today. Liberals are true to the heart of orthodox Christian doctrine on God. They are here encouraged to find their voice, demonstrate the deep roots of their faith, and above all, enjoy it.
