Reviews - What do customers think about What Is God?: How to Think about the Divine?

By no means is this a child's book  Jan 28, 2008
I don't know whether the reviewer who gave this book one star confused it with another of the same title, as was suggested by another reviewer, or is merely a graduate student sounding pretentious. In any case, his remarks are completely off target.

While this is an introductory text, it is by no means for children. It raises important questions and provides readers with a cognitive structure for the investigation of the nature of the divine. It may be a bit disturbing to ultra-orthodox Christians, be they Catholic or Protestant. If so, they probably should be disturbed.

This is a worthwhile read for anyone who wishes to press beyond the catechism.
Previous review read the wrong book!  Jan 17, 2006
The previous reviewer is (I think!) referring to a book with an identical title, authored by Etan Boritzer, which in fact was intended for grade-school children! The book by Haught was not at all "elementary", but was very thoughtful and thought-provoking.
"The Problem of God"  Feb 9, 2005
Having taken my fair share of theology classes at Georgetown University, where Professor Haught is on the faculty, I look back fondly at the freshman year required course, "The Problem of God," for which this book was the Week One text. The course sets out to inspire in a green undergraduate the basic notion that "God" is a far separate thing than oragnized Christianity, and Haught's text serves to launch that discussion straightaway. It riffs on one main theme and in doing so, is meant to offer pause to the kid who is still learning to cross the quad without tripping.
Way to basic...  Mar 28, 2004
If you know about God and/or Theology at all, I would steer clear from this book! It is written for grade school students. I did not find it an enjoyable read at all. I am a graduate student that was assigned to read this book and am appalled at the fact that this was on our curriculum!
