I liked the idea of this book better than the actual book. God thinks folks have forgotten about heaven and generally being good and wants to hire and ad agengy to up the awareness. I did like it much better than that other God book I read this year, The Shack, probably because the God in this book is sort of an all God, rather like the GSD (global standard diety) of the Jaspre Fford books. But I really wanted to see if a goodness advertising campaign would make a difference.
I loved the first six chapters of this book. It is exactly how ad agencies and clients work. I identified with everyone but as the book progressed, I lost interest. I wanted to know what happened with the Happy Soul Industry, but it did not take me there. I am glad that I took this out from the library.
