For many years, Christians have felt at home in the world. The result of that way of life was the presumption that we knew what we meant when we said ‘God.’ Drawing on often-ignored passages in the Bible, Kandiah helps us recover how odd the God we worship as Christians turns out to be. It seems God shows up even as a Jewish peasant. Such a God can scare the hell out of us, but I guess that’s the point. So read this book as a challenge to our domesticated imaginations.
