Having Words with God book. In Having Words with God, Karl Kuhn introduces an approach to Scripture that regards Scripture as a sacred dialogue between God and humanity, and believers and one another. He shows how the Bible bears witness to an ongoing conversation which God initiates, inspires, and guides among humanity.

Karl Allen Kuhn is professor of religion at Lakeland College and an ordained clergy in the United Church of Christ. He has authored The Heart of Biblical Narrative: Rediscovering Biblical Appeal to the Emotions (2009), Having Words with God: The Bible as Conversation (2008), both from Fortress Press, and The Kingdom According to Luke and Acts (2015). The OT contains a lot of topics and some of them are very unsettling. This book forces discussion on many of those issues. While I did not always agree with some of the author's conclusions, it provided a lot of perspective on issues that many other books would only gloss over or bury under ideology.

This book was required for a course I was taking at Princeton Theological Seminary and I can see why it was on our reading list. The OT contains a lot of topics and some of them are very unsettling. This book forces discussion on many of those issues. While I did not always agree with some of the author's conclusions, it provided a lot of perspective on issues that many other books would only gloss over or bury under ideology.

Really good...drew me to the spiritual side and caused me to see God a little bit differently. Reminded me of how very much our God wants to engage with each of us, and with me.

Great book. Served its purpose and helped me pass my course. Offers great perspective.
Would by for personal read if it was not required for class.

One can hardly disagree that Christians are supposed to have discussions among themselves and also with God. However I think this book sometimes confuses the two types of "dialog" (i.e. man-man, and man-God). It seems to me that our best example of what man-God communication looks like, is what we can read in the Bible about how Jesus communicated with his disciples. Certainly Jesus cared what they said and did and certainly he suffered with them and for them. However I cannot recall Jesus ever really begin surprised or persuaded by anything that his disciples said or did. I cannot recall Jesus ever really changing his mind.

I have enjoyed this book as part of a study group. It has been an eye opener truly putting at ease the general reader with what can be a very frightening book to read and discuss.

I can highly recommend and suggest making sure your Bible is with you as you read.

Kuhn will challenge you! If you want to believe there is just one way to interpret scripture then do not buy this book.
