So Who is God, Anyway?: An (UN)orthodox Theory for Doubters, Skeptics, and Recovering Fundamentalists

Payne

"A well-written and convincing rumination on the divine." --Kirkus Reviews

GS Payne, writer, sleuth, and eternally curious ruminator, investigates 2,500 years-plus of philosophical thought on the subject of God. Using the tools of the philosopher (and a lot of humor), Payne traces the thinking of history's greatest brains to arrive initially at a conclusion on the matter of God's existence; then, a philosophical conception of God that is no less than startling, first because it is nothing like the traditional conception of God (he of the beard and sandals on his throne in the sky), and, second, because it is a conception that not only goes back to the beginning of recorded time, but is recognized by every major religion on earth, and yet has been tragically relegated to the fringes by the louder, more fundamentalist branches of mainstream religion.

So Who is God, Anyway? delivers splendidly-for doubters, skeptics, recovering fundamentalists, or anyone looking for a fun book to read about some damn big questions!

"A well-written and convincing rumination on the divine. Payne is especially skilled at introducing difficult concepts with an engaging, often humorous prose style." -Kirkus Reviews

"Five Stars! Edgy but kind exploration of God's existence and nature...the sense of humor seasons the text like a good dash of salt and pepper. If there's one book on God to read this year, please make it 'So Who is God Anyway?' by G.S. Payne." -Reader Views

"With wit, humanity, and inviting prose, So Who is God Anyway? explains complex philosophical concepts clearly and accurately...Payne targets an audience of skeptics, but open-minded people of any religious tradition can find value in his musings." -BookLife (Editor's Pick)

"A fascinating exploration. With humor, wit, and thought-provoking insights, Payne makes a convincing case that there is more to God than meets the eye...Whether you're seeking personal growth or a new perspective on life, Payne's work will captivate and challenge you to think beyond what you have been taught." -Midwest Book Review

"Filled with humor...Payne's exceptional research is delivered as if he's talking to you at his home while you sip a glass of lemonade. Five stars!" -Readers' Favorite



"A thoughtful and accessible approach for the lay believer or nonbeliever who wants a firmer basis in understanding what and how to believe." -IndieReader

About the Author

Payne: - G.S. Payne is an award-winning ghostwriter of over forty books. In his spare time, he has always found himself drawn to "the big questions" of life, and philosophy is his major avocation. "So Who is God, Anyway?: an UNorthodox Theory for Doubters, Skeptics, and Recovering Fundamentalists," is the culmination of more than 30 years of philosophical research into the questions of God's existence and God's nature.Payne lives on the Gulf Coast of Florida and when he's not writing or mulling the big questions, he can be found on his sailboat, Pilar, named after Ernest Hemingway's fishing boat. He also enjoys the cinema and traveling, and when engaged in the latter, he seeks out historic hotels (preferably haunted ones) and good Irish pubs. Of all the things he's most proud of, being a father and grandfather top the list.
