This book was barely tolerable. I have an interest in the way that people develop their religious beliefs, and I had hoped for a discussion of the role of attachment theory played on the development of various God concepts. What I got was an awful attempt to convert the reader to the author's particular view of God -- and even that was boring. This book was a wasted opportunity.

I found this really interesting as it looks at how our formative years "set us up" for our perception of who God is and how to relate to him.
