After observing prejudice based on religion at his workplace, author Miles Barnett decided to write a book on how various religions view God. “GOD EXPLAINED” allows individuals to perceive and understand when religious prejudice is being brought forth.
In this book, readers are shown how 30 religious groups and denominations within these groups view God. Leaders from 30 different religions were asked to explain the question, “Who is God?” They answered that question through essays, sermons, interviews, writing a letter and giving a liturgy. The understanding readers will receive from reading this book will allow them to discuss religion honestly and openly with others. Hopefully, through this knowledge, people will have a better understanding of how God is viewed by different religions. Hopefully, through this knowledge, people will have a better understanding of how God is viewed by different religions. This knowledge should allow individuals to perceive and understand when religious prejudice is being brought forth.
An excerpt from the book:
“All religions state that their God is loving, kind and forgiving. Yet, most religions have radicals that state, “If you don’t believe in my God I am going to kill you.”
“GOD EXPLAINED” allows readers to understand different views of God, perceive their religion in a different manner from what they grew up with and see how inadvertent statements about religion may be perceived as being prejudicial.
