Publishers Description The Bible is the most quoted book in the western world, and likely the most misunderstood. It is often thought to be little more than religious mythology, or a collection of moral and ethical guidelines, or a series of quaint but irrelevant legends. But what if the Bible were read on its own terms, as a highly personal and unbelievably passionate love story? What if the Bible is really a wild tale of relentless pursuit, the diary of a God who can't bear to be separated from the people he loves? In "God on Paper" you'll share in a conversation that takes a new look at Scripture, a dialogue that entertains doubts and questions about the value-and the validity-of the Bible. And you'll encounter an amazing love story of divine proportions. Go ahead and join the conversation. You might be surprised by what you find.

Fantastically Unique and Refreshing Book!! Jan 18, 2005
I'm not a fast reader, but once I picked this book up I didn't put it down until I finished it the next afternoon!!!
Loritts' ability to intertwine ancient and modern history, coupled with his down-to-earth personal anecdotes, truly set this book apart from your typical Christian reading fare. "Real" is probably the best all encompassing word for his style of communication.
I found myself engrossed in the life story of Malcolm X or a historical perspective on the bubonic plague one minute, and the next feeling compelled to apply great Christian truths in a deeper way in my life. Its surprising approach draws you deep into nitty-gritty Biblical stories that are often glossed over by Christians, such as those involving prostitutes, cheaters, stealers, liars, murderers, and all the not so "perfect" Bible heroes.
All around it's a really cool book by a guy who draws on a wealth of super interesting knowledge, and who has a keen ability to explain what's going on in one of the most misunderstood books in history.
You'll laugh, cry, and be consistently amazed at God's "passion and pursuit" of everyday people throughout ancient and modern history. I can't wait for his next book! (I know that sounds cheesy, but it's true.)
