How I wish I’d found this book ten years ago…. When I stumbled on this book two months ago, I was thrilled. Critics might see it as a soft-core, everything-and-the-kitchen-sick approach to discussing religion, but that’s exactly what I needed.

This is a thoughtful introduction to the many meanings of God, to the world’s religions, and the author even gives a moment’s thought to the many ways to pray.

Etan Boritzer provides young people with interesting, thoughtful perspectives to these types of questions about God… Many spiritual questions are pondered and are presented in a way that shows that…ultimately we all believe in the same things….
