"How do your personal experiences, your study, and your faith perspective influence the way you, as an individual, see God?" That was the question posed to these seven renowned authors and scholars. Representing a wide variety of faith perspectives, Karen Armstrong, Diana Eck, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Joan Chittister, Laurence Kushner, Desmond Tutu, and Marcus Borg explore the ways in which their life experiences have shaped their personal understanding of God.
Originally given as lectures at the God at 2000 conference in February 2000, each presentation has been rewritten for a reading audience. Conversation starters, based on the questions asked at the conference itself, are included, making this an excellent resource for small group study. An introduction written by Marcus Borg provides readers with a frame of reference that will help them explore the issues raised in the book, and become clear about their own personal understanding of God.
