Giving Up God ... to Find God
Full Product Description
Kerry Walters unmasks the golden calves we have been taught to worship and enlightens us living in presence of Spirit. The false gods are:
the Genie god
the Patriot god,
the By-the-Book god
the Designer god
Sunday School god
The more idols we remove from our interior shrines the more space we open up for the real God and spiritual values that make a difference in our lives. The tools are detachment and discrimination, alert attentiveness, patience, and trust. The benefit of reading this book is spiritual clarity and assurance.
Giving Up God ... to Find God by Kerry Walters was published by Orbis Books in September 2013. The ISBN for Giving Up God ... to Find God is 9781626980426.

Giving Up god ... To Find GodJohnny Douglas, via The Good Book Stall
The creation of idols seem to be an inescapable part of the life of faith. This is a powerful and authentic exploration of 'designer gods' from the keyboard of Kerry Walters. "Giving Up god... to Find God" is a short and insightful book that examines errors we make when we think about God, and how these things obstruct our depth of life with God. This is full of technical research, robust thought and dashes of inspiration.
The book would be an ideal choice for church and study group use, as each chapter deals with a different, clearly-defined misconception of God. The book would also interest 'Introduction to Religion' college classes and individual spiritual seekers struggling to understand God.
Walters summarizes well some of the major errors in thinking about God in various categories. The book is written with clarity and good spirit as world views are engaged with objectively and their vulnerabilities laid bare. I wanted more around the Meister Eckhart take on things, more in the conclusion and more insight as to why, "taking leave of God for the sake of God is the greatest ask of renunciation that someone can make." Just as Pascal said, "There is nothing so abominable in God's eyes as idolatry, whereby men render to the creature honor which is due only to the Creator." This is top-class stuff.
