Item description for Oh! God? Is that You? I Have a Question by George B. Wallace...
A return to religious roots. You are challenged to step up to a new understanding of God. An understanding that has a lot to do with our being failure prone humans, and a lot more to do with our being a part of God's Plan, as God shows it to us. Human beings look to God for ways to give meaning to their lives. Whatever God humans worship, there are concerns common to every social group: their relationship to God, community, family and the "good life." Every group developed links from their God and His attributes, to rules for familial, clan, and tribal behaviors and religious practices. These rules are usually consistent with the theology derived from the attribution of concerns of their God as being human. This book asks you to take one extra step. Consider God as not being human. God does not have human concerns.

Question Authority Then Question Their Answers Jan 31, 2006
Reviewed by Rhiannon Kelly Fionn for Reader Views (1/6)
In "Oh! God? Is That You? I Have A Question.", George B. Wallace encourages his readers to look beyond the "truths" organized religion, family, and society have fed us and, instead, reach for our own truths with the aid of questions and logic. This book represents Mr. Wallace's personal image of God. He is endearingly wise enough, however, to include a disclaimer stating that he could very possibly have it all wrong. Simultaneously he reminds us how important it is to seek our own answers versus blindly and naively accepting any homogenized, censored, revised details presented to us as the one path to God.
Conversational with an occasional sarcastic or silly jab, Mr. Wallace explains key points with vivid, charismatic description. For instance, in reference to a soul being banished to Hell he writes, "Burned souls would give God indigestion." Or when discussing the life and times of Jesus he says, "Jesus' life was not about magic, or mumbo jumbo; it was about love, but it is likely that later writers added a lot of decoration to the icing on the cake".
As someone who enjoys the study of various religions and spiritual paths, I found myself dog-earing pages while making mental lists of people to steer toward this title. I am impressed by Mr. Wallace's purposeful and pointed examination of God taking his readers beyond the obvious so that we might better connect to and clarify the role of God, and his (or her) motivations, in our lives and world.
This book is for all thinking souls; a brilliant reminder to not only question authority but to also question the answers authority returns. This book may not be for the deeply indoctrinated for, I fear, their minds may well explode. If you prefer to wrap yourself in a cloak of groupthink and play follow and finance the leader-put this book down and go back to covering your eyes. On the other hand, if you enjoy asking "Why?" you will savor "Oh! God? Is That You? I Have A Question."
Controversial, Compelling, Challenging, Outrageous... Oct 18, 2005
George Wallace has written an insightful, seminal work that challenges every belief and every value you have ever held.
He has managed to offend every aspect of faith and religiosity. His observations are both outrageous... and true.
No religion, no doctrine, no faith, no evangelist, no leader, is spared his razor-sharp wit, his keen intellect, and his knack for cutting though all the BS that infects religious thought.
The talking heads of religion are squirming in their pulpits... and some are already calling for the head of George Wallace on a stick.
