Overview

Like so many others, Jim struggled with the unanswered questions about God, and the certainty with which many Christians seemed to present ideas about God. But at the same time as he was pulled towards settling into cynicism, he was still continually drawn towards God with ongoing intrigue and the hope that God was better than he had thought.

What if there is more to God than we first thought? And what does God really want from us anyway?

In Taping Over God, Jim looks at how updating our early, and less developed, thoughts about God with deeper thoughts and further conversations can lead to a greater awareness of God and life, steering us towards richer and more meaningful relationships, maturity, and repair for us and the world around us.

By reading Taping Over God, you will confront the deep desire we all feel to be right and to have all the answers, and come through, discovering practical ways to find and experience God.
