What do we know about God, by Michael J Lowis

4fd4ba6e-5315-4c36-9e1d-9a1a2261565a

For his fifth book, psychologist and theologian Mike Lowis asked a big question: What do we know about the God?

God has been around for a long time -in fact from the very beginning- but what do we actually know about him? Perhaps it is foolhardy to even try to answer this because many people will regard the God of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as unknowable.

Nevertheless, this book explores the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament) and associated writings to unearth just what is revealed about the nature and persona of the Deity. Early chapters discuss the first signs of religious beliefs, and the origins of the major religions. The book then continues with a description of the author’s open-minded investigation into what the Scriptures reveal about God's origin, attributes, and activities. These include miracles, making laws, punishing, rewarding, answering prayers, and predicting a future Messiah.

A final chapter summarizes the findings and draws conclusions. The sheer number of details gleaned from the biblical and other texts will help the reader to see God as an entity, with a personality who has attributes, likes, and dislikes. He rejoices, but also laments; he has a presence; he is available; he hears our prayers. Those who were a little unsure about the authenticity of God should have their confidence in him strengthened by the amount of information presented. They can then explore this further for themselves, with the aid of an extensive bibliography.
