God in the Balance
Heyward directly addresses our vulnerability to terror, especially its religious and political aspects. Examining six images of God--God of War, God of Peace, God as Father, God as Spirit. God in us, and God in all--the author locates an authentic religious response in a healthy balancing of God-images, while religiously motivated violence stems from absolutist theories that fix on only one image of an inexhaustible deity. Stressing mutuality and openness, Heyward sketches a creative Christian response to violence, terror, and war.
Endorsements & Reviews-
"A refreshingly bold and honest effort to re-image God for our turbulent times. With intellectual integrity and courage, it says some pretty tough things, but then Jesus did too."
