After twenty years focused overseas, an American missionary looks home. Dr. Munger applies his experience in culture, language, and the Bible to fellow Evangelicals. Their often-distorted picture of God saddens Him. The loving God who woos humanity is wrongly perceived on both sides of a growing cultural rift. We, in America, who claim to follow Him, do much harm to the cause of Christ. Though "God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son" (John 3:16), "his name is blasphemed among the Gentiles" because of us (Romans 2:24).
Rethinking God: Undoing the Damage transcends the cultural divide by exposing common distortions of the great, grieving lover. It unmasks Evangelical misrepresentations, but also challenges non-Christians to rethink their own positions. The book starts by establishing the nature and validity of faith. Then come key areas that most often damage God's reputation: Church leadership, practice, and political involvement; distorted theology; the problem of evil; and the fate of people who never hear the gospel. Dr. Munger challenges Christians to reform, and gives honest seekers reason and courage to look again at the beauty of humanity's source and only hope.
