This book is the record of a lively conversation that took place at Oregon State University in February 2000, and the editors have done a wonderful job of preserving the conversational tone. It is not a transcript, but a personal encounter with eight remarkable individuals who share accessible accounts of how they see God and what they have learned about God in lifetimes of study, reflection, and--sometimes--struggle. The eight participants (Karen Armstrong, Marcus Borg, Joan Chittister, Diana Eck, Lawrence Kushner, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Desmond Tutu, and Ross Mackenzie) all represent Abrahamic traditions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam). That six come from Christian backgrounds diminishes the variety, but all draw on their experiences of interreligious dialogue to introduce a significant range of traditions and perspectives. Personable presentations and a clear framework provided by Borg and Mackenzie combined with brief accounts of exchanges with the audience and among participants make this an invitation to a continuing conversation as well as a report on the fragment of it that occurred in Oregon. The book will appeal to a broad audience of readers engaged in their own reflections about God "at 2000" and beyond.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 081921907X, Paperback)

"How do your personal experiences, your study, and your faith perspective influence the way you, as an individual, see God?" That was the question posed to these seven renowned authors and scholars. Representing a wide variety of faith perspectives, Karen Armstrong, Diana Eck, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Joan Chittister, Laurence Kushner, Desmond Tutu, and Marcus Borg explore the ways in which their life experiences have shaped their personal understanding of God.

Originally given as lectures at the God at 2000 conference in February 2000, each presentation has been rewritten for a reading audience. Conversation starters, based on the questions asked at the conference itself, are included, making this an excellent resource for small group study. An introduction written by Marcus Borg provides readers with a frame of reference that will help them explore the issues raised in the book, and become clear about their own personal understanding of God.
