From Publishers Weekly An emerging popular writer for culture-savvy evangelicals, Feinberg challenges 20-somethings and older Christians to trade in their current relationship with God for an "organic" one. In a word, Feinberg describes her former understanding of God as "polluted," while today she longs for closeness to the creator as characterized by all that is "natural, pure, and essential." Throughout these introspective spiritual musings, Feinberg (What the Heck Should I Do with My Life? and God Whispers) is engaging and thoughtful as she pairs the mysteries of the divine-human relationship with everyday wonders found in the material world. Thematically laid out, the book shares Feinberg's personal recollections from childhood on to present-day experiences while pointing to various aspects of God's character; Feinberg's God is bighearted, beautiful, wise, talkative, infallible, generous, stubborn, kind and mysterious. In one particularly transparent story, Feinberg shares how God nudged her to bestow generosity by giving away a beloved sweater, a pair of gloves and some gourmet treats. Feinberg resisted, only to ruin the sweater, lose a glove and find the treats uneatable within a 24-hour period. She learned that "the Organic God doesn't just want me to give until it hurts, but rather to give until it feels good." Feinberg's quirky personality shines forth on every page, making her text a delectable treat. (May) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

The Organic God May 16, 2010
I cannot review this purchase as the seller sent me the wrong product and I am unable to get any reconciliation from them as to how I can get what I paid for. It is just dust in the wind I guess.
Organic God May 13, 2010
Ordered two new books. One was in great shape the other had dents in the cover. The price was great and I would purchase from this vendor again.

In the Organic God Margaret Feinberg has the ability to make the printed page come alive with the presence of God to renew and refresh the reader. Delightful is an understatement for this book. It is restorative in ways that little in this world of indulgence and abundance is able to effectively restore! I found joy and beauty on every page. As we go with her on her journies we see that she bares her tender heart to God and to us. She exposes the reader to the great treasures of God's covenant of unfailing love. My husband needed to be convinced that " this was not a women's book". In the midst of reading it, he came to me in tears saying that he was so deeply touched by the beauty and the joy in it ! Are you hungry? " The Organic God is for you!!
A feast for thought that is easily digestible. Feb 11, 2010
I stumbled on "The Organic God" while teaching English in Morocco. It was on my friend's bookshelf. The timing couldn't have been better. It was fresh water for my weary soul after being gone from the US for 5 months.
Somehow, God, in His plan to use this woman, has allowed for Margaret to experience at least ONE situation in which you have found yourself. Whether it's college, quarter-life crisis or legalistic religious movements that drain the life out of your soul, you will be able to relate to her and she to you.
"The Organic God" is written from a person and to people who really want a friend to walk with them in their quest and encourage them as they search, earnestly, even wearily, that ability to see God purely and in every aspect of life.
Margaret is honest, vulnerable, TMI-free and her words are akin to a time machine that transport the reader, instantly, to where she needs your mind to be. There is as much depth to this book as you want but it's not overwhelming and although it is loaded with detail you won't be drowning.
She has become one of my favorite authors and I'd entrust any friend to this book.
Do yourself the favor - read it. And do her a favor, because she'll be delighted to share God with you.

Che Guevara like Jesus? Jan 30, 2010
With all the five star reviews this book has, I couldn't stand to be silent about this book! I was enjoying the read until the author compares Jesus to Che Guevara in chapter two. Okay, so Che did a couple of nice things, but then he killed thousands of people in the Cuban Revolution before trying to start revolution all over the world! Hitler did a couple of nice things too, before he killed 6,000,000 people! If the author really doesn't know who Che Guevara is, she should have done a little research before she compared him to Jesus. I am of the opinion that no author writes a book without doing this kind of simple research. I will not be reading any more books by an author who glorifies a man who stated that his dream was to be "a killing machine", and also said, "The negro is lazy and indolent, spending all his money on frivolities and booze." There's a reason there are so many Cuban people in America! If I could give this book zero stars, I would!!!
