An excellent short book, outlining several fallacies that Christians (and others) often believe about God, followed by a straightforward and comprehensive outline of who God is. Recommended. ( )

The first part has a couple of good points about people's misconception of God. Part two is pure reverse inductive Christian apologetics. ( )

Another church library weed (I lost the vote, won the book).
  MrsBond | Nov 29, 2008 |
Debunks common misconceptions of God, such as God as resident policeman, God as parental hangover, or God as grand old man, and replaces them with a more adequate conception of God.
  stmarysasheville | Jun 5, 2008 |
Man doesn't know God. Instead he holds in his mind an image of God. Unfortunately this image tends to be somewhat misleading, even destructive, and will especially be so if it isn't allowed to grow with experience of life.

Phillips gives a presentation of various images he sees men suffering from, and I do appreciate the effort he takes, even if he is missing one or two I have encountered.

Update: and of course, "God" doesn't actually exist does it? ( )
