THE END OF DIVINE TRUTHINESS
The End of Divine Truthiness confronts stark realities of terrifying theologies that make a mockery out of divine love and answers Martin Luther King, Jr.’s pointed challenge to overcome “reckless and abusive . . . power without love,” and “sentimental and anemic . . . love without power.” Wielding Stephen Colbert’s word “truthiness” as a scalpel, we can cut out one perilous theology after another to restore the wholesome truth that God is love. The end of divine truthiness” heralds a new day for the God whose love is power and whose power is love.
WHAT ABOUT US? STORIES OF UNCONTROLLING LOVE
Why does a good God allow bad things to happen? The question of theodicy has baffled and plagued us for the majority of human history, but what if the answer places the responsibility on us instead of God? What About Us is a collection of real life stories told by ordinary people exploring the partnership between God and humanity and the results of our acting (or not acting) as God persuades us to take part in redemptive work in the world.
Huge thank you to L. Michaels for editing this volume in response to Thomas Jay Oord's excellent work: The Uncontrolling Love of God. I just have one of the essays in this great book.
