Customer Questions & Answers for
Fortress Press God Reflected: Metaphors for Life

When a loved one dies, somebody inevitably says the death was God's will. The same claim is made when a person is cured of cancer. In a war, both sides often argue that they are carrying out God's will. Faithful people search for God's will for their lives, especially when they are faced with a decision, such as which job to take or whether to have another child. What is meant by God's will? How does God act? What is the character of the God whose will is expressed in and through our lives? This book answers these questions in relation to a broadly Christian perspective.

Based on the traditional premise that everything we assert about God is metaphorical, this wonderfully written book presents a range of ways to imagine the nature of God and of God's power and will: from a personal but distant God who is fully in charge and in control, through more gentle and engaged images of God, and ultimately to a non-personal view of God as the energy for life in the universe. Each perspective offers distinct images for God and for the way in which God's will operates; each is assessed for its strengths and weaknesses. With deep insight and clear, inspiring writing, Keshgegian ultimately offers a way to imagine God and power that redefines the whole idea of God's will.
