Can you be an atheist and still believe in God?
Can you be a true believer and still doubt?
Can Zen give us a way past our constant fighting about God?
Brad Warner was initially interested in Buddhism because he wanted to find God, but Buddhism is usually thought of as godless. In the three decades since Warner began studying Zen, he has grappled with paradoxical questions about God and managed to come up with some answers. In this fascinating search for a way beyond the usual arguments between fundamentalists and skeptics, Warner offers a profoundly engaging and idiosyncratic take on the ineffable power of the "ground of all being."

"Great Book, loved it!"
Certainly not what I expected, definitely his best book so far. I am going to listen to it again right now!
reading by the author."
Great perspectives and stories. It's like sitting down and listening to a good friend. Enjoyed while on my daily walk.
great insight. good use of references throughout the book. seems genuine.
The title about sums it up. Things often don't make sense, so how do we sort things out? Is there a God? what is God? Who knows, but this is Mr. Warner's opinion on the subject, not Buddhist teachings, but rather his own thoughts. It didn't answer any questions for me, but I found it very interesting to follow his thinking. The book is well written and I enjoyed his "at home" narration, background noises and all.
thank you for you insight. I like the Buddha stuff, and the good stuff. I get this is not a punk rock book but I liked that stuff too, from before. keep up the good work.
"A worthy backup to Harcore Zen"
A worthy follow up to his other works, which I read in paperback. Worth it. Very engaging.
"long essay not dharma talk"
There are a lot of good dharma talks on Audible. If you want teachings don't look here. These are Brad's opinions and they are based on Brad's opinions.
This is really just a blog. Interesting at times, but mostly not.
