The OMG Chronicles

Peter Rodger, the author of the book and the movie "The Oh My God Chronicles" is absolutely BRILLIANT.
The idea behind this book was in the mass murder, suicides that have taken place not only in this country on 911 but all over the world in the name of God, and the fight against the Devil. So...what is GOD? There is no one defining answer, and that what he set out to prove. He traveled all over the world showing a much larger scale view of what God is to various people, and cultures throughout the world.
I believe personally that we are so limited in our views because our parents and our ministers said to be so. We have allowed fear and judgement to be our ruling factor in our own relationship with God. We grow up believe what we've been taught to believe, and not to judge others for it...but "they are still going to hell."
I think God is much less judgmental than we are, and yet, we still think we speak for him because the bible says so. But, notice there are many religious texts in the world, and for a reason. God is greater than your one text. Even the many different volumes of your one text.
Open up your mind, and if you can't travel the world, read his book to help you open up your mind.
I recommend this book to anybody who is challenging the confines of the religions and the church's and looking to know God for yourself. The GOD that lives globally, not in the bible belt of the world.

Note: I reviewed this book for Hay House. They gave me a copy of the book for free and I am not being paid to give a review.
