The Organic God - Book Review

I have been wanting to read The Organic God for YEARS. But the two library systems I've been part of over the past five years have not carried this book AT ALL. In the meantime, I've read other books by Margaret Feinberg, but this one has definitely stayed in the back of my mind and on my to-read list.

So imagine how excited I was to see that The Organic God was available for free to review through the BookSneeze review program! I immediately signed up to review this book next.

This is a fairly short book, but it definitely packs a powerful punch. For Christians, it challenges what we think we know about Jesus, God, and acting like a Christian. It calls us to step back and take stock of our current relationship with God, and then strive to make that relationship better. Feinberg shares a lot of personal anecdotes (many of them humorous) and backs up what she's saying with quotes from scripture. She also provides discussion questions for the reader to go through with a group, such as a Bible study, or on his/her own. And the music lover in me certainly appreciated Feinberg's The Organic God playlist: two songs for each chapter from popular Christian music and popular music in general. (Lots of U2.)

If you find yourself in a spiritual rut and are looking for a way to get back to the root of Christianity and really get back to knowing God, then this is a great book for you. I'm so glad this book has been reprinted!
