Jehovah, Good Bye: The "New Theism" of Love, by Richard Shiningthunder Francis, is a passionate but reasoned demand that we, as a culture, abandon the archaic and hideously dangerous god-image of our primitive, ruthless, savage ancestors of the twenty-first century BC. Although virtually ubiquitous in fundamentalist churches, this volatile, perilous war-god from the past simply has no valid place in an age where we have the weapons to destroy planet Earth.
This explosively controversial book is refreshing, because it provides a workable, viable alternative. The new God, of the new age, must be reformulated from the "big daddy in the sky" image, to a God who is actually defined as Love itself. This new God is not a person, separate from sentient creation, but is a state, a process, a powerful interior potential. Describing the new God as universal Mind, Richard Francis clearly elucidates the various levels and layers of mind, with special compassion and tenderness towards all those tragic, disappointed, and bitter people whose prayers have gone ignored. He also displays a soft spot in his heart for atheist who have felt "forced" to give up on God. The book also presents a practical explanation for the phenomenon of "evil."
It is also a real and valuable guide. After considering the historical and theological dilemmas of the old god-myth, Part II of the book illustrates and describes a simple, step-by-step implementation program. Thus, the book is a priceless tool for those who actually want to improve their lives. As a single dramatic example, the book describes a simple method, which you can use immediately, to absolutely, completely rid your life forever of all disappointments. Dozens of other realistic patterns are described in detail for actualizing the Way of Love-- not a religion, but a spiritual Way of life.
Reading this stunning book will change, for the better, the way you think, and live, for the rest of your life.
