Item description for Good Goats: Healing Our Image of God by Dennis Linn, Sheila F. Linn & Matthew Linn...
Overview Why is it so important to heal our image of God? It is not so we'll know what afterlife is like. Rather, it is because we become like the God we adore. We must understand God's love and grace first and foremost, and in turn we will be able to love other people with grace. Studies have shown that this is true in many aspects of our lives. In marriage, for example, the more a couple experiences God as a lover, the more likely they are to enjoy a wholesome, loving marriage.

Thank Goodness Jan 2, 2008
Throw away that abusive image of God. Read this book and realize that understanding God as a loving parent gives one a more loving and fulfilling life than seeing God as a vindictive judge that has weighed your life on the scales of justice and found you wanting.
Good tool for Spiritual Directors/guides May 7, 2007
Good Goats is a powerful but simple book to use to help yourself or others debunk the noise in our heads that makes us think that God is a judgemental and cruel god. Linn anwers all types of questions about us and our faith walk helping us to understand that we are "all good goats". Excellent.
God's unconditional love, center of the message of the Word of God to the world. Mar 19, 2007
Good goats is a message by the Linns that already proclaimed a few years back what the encyclical: Deus Caritas Est recently confirmed for the world: God is love, God loves all humans unconditionally. This message for the last millenium was continuously challenge by the theology of Saint Anselme: Jesus sufferd and died to satisfy and pay for our sins, a demand of distributive justice, the justice of an eye for an eye. Benedict XVI stresses that the cross is a "non-violent" symbol of the love and forgiveness of God for the whole world.... and stresses his conviction that the secular world of today who "forgets God", suffer from a deep loneliness and therefore needs to hear that God loves the whole world, that the world is DEAR to God. The message that God tenderly loves the world is the most important healing of our modern world. Ubald Duchesneau
