Like I said, I am only halfway through, so I may have to stand corrected if I get to the end and he has gone off the deep end into all sorts of false statements about God. But so far, I can say that I have been refreshed and inspired, and I am trying to open my eyes to see how I may have falsely put God...or Jesus...or the Holy Spirit into a box that was fashioned by the "church" and not by what is in God's word. If I say too much more, I might give something away....
Here is an excerpt from Chapter 6, page 97..."Mackenzie, I am what some would say 'holy, and wholly other than you.' The problem is that many folks try to grasp some sense of who I am by taking the best version of themselves, projecting that to the nth degree, factoring in all the goodness they can perceive, which often isn't much, and then call THAT God. And while it may seem like a noble effort, the truth is it still falls pitifully short of who I really am. I'm not merely the best version of you that you can think of. I am far more than that, above and beyond all that you can ask or think."
One more, page 100..."A bird's not defined by being grounded but by his ability to fly. Remember this, humans are not defined by their limitations, but by the intentions that I have for them; not by what they seem to be, but by everything it means to be created in My image."
I would love to hear other thoughts on this book, from those who have read it, plan to read it, or are steering clear of it!
