Mare presents intense interviews with the young, with the old; with believers, with non-believers all based on the very basic question that what if she could give you God’s phone number, a direct, no waiting, connection, what would you ask God?
The responses to that question truly run the whole scope of human experience; of human search for meaning in life. Would some chose to not call; would some have multiple questions? Of course, and those questions go to the very core of existence on this planet. You don’t want to miss these responses; you do want as you are reading to make some notes of your own. Write down all your questions as you read the responses of others; think about the question and write down what comes to mind. When you finish the book, and you will definitely want to finish the book, look at your questions and break it down to just one question. Ask yourself if you have the courage to dial that number, or would it be impertinent, blasphemous—or an incredible communication?
This written expression Mare has gathered for you is priceless. A phone call with God. Are we extending our limited human perspective to God to think he or she sits about waiting for a phone call? Would our questions be answered in a way we could comprehend, or is our intelligence too limited to understand the immensity of Creation and the interconnection of all of it? Would we literally “melt down” if we heard the voice of God?
This book makes you think. And possibly, if you reversed this question, and she asked how you would respond if God called you directly, how comfortable would you be with that?
This is a must read, eye opening, thought provoking, important work. Ready to pick up the book, consider the question—indeed, make the call, contemplate the challenge?
