A recent article in USA Today about a new book entitled America's Four Gods, identified four distinct views of God in America: Authoritative, Benevolent, Critical, and Distant. Surprisingly America is almost equally divided among these four views. Wayne and Brad discuss how neither of these views does justice to the nature and reality of God. This article confirms how important it is that we connect with God as a reality, not formulate opinions about him as a concept. This spills into a wider discussion about how we help those who can't seem to connect with God beyond their intellectual conclusions about him gathered from their misunderstnding of Scripture or their lives.
