Gray Fitzgerald

about this book: FROM THREE REVIEWS

• Being clear about who God is and who God isn't…How do we face up to the horrific side of Scripture in the Judeo-Christian tradition…the all-too vivid accounts of murder, rape, brutality, dislocation and outright genocide (all apparently with god's enthusiastic support) without cringing?

• Are some scriptures in the Christian Bible more to be trusted than others? …Fitzgerald sets out diametrically opposed scriptures over against each other about who it is God directs us to be and cogently offers his arguments for why certain streams of the biblical witness are "more equal" than others.

• This book is a fantastic group study as its chapters are concise, yet it address such issues as suffering, revenge, forgiveness, rich and poor, and contrary views of who God is. It asserts that to be true to the Biblical tradition we must acknowledge that all passages are not equal and that Jesus himself lifted up some parts of scripture to confront other ones.
