God. Whether one loves him, hates him, denies or defies him, it is hard to deny the worldwide fascination with God. This book explores why and suggests a personal response to the God Attachment in all of us.

Why has the human race, the world over, been so fascinated with . . . some might say obsessed with . . . God? This built-in attachment to God crosses religious, politic

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.

Psychology takes a back seat to theology here. Several times, the authors make a statement of fact, then ignore the fac

So many things to say about this book. First, I enjoyed the read and thought that their integration of attach enemy theory's styles into the Christian framework was reasonable. I enjoyed the multiple discussions on the issues that arise in forming relationships with others and God due to previous neglect, abuse, or parental misguidance.

The pros:
A worthy discussion of attachment in the context of following Christ.
Helps to understand how our past experiences shape or current behavior, views, bel

Every Christian should read this book to know where they've been, where they are, or where they need to be headed in their walk with Christ. It's even a good read for someone who is interested in the phenomenon of Christ. Our culture has such a God Obsession (one of the chapter titles, and issues discussed). Whether we claim to know him or not, most have an opinion or particular view they stand by concerning God. I taught a class on this book last spring, and all of us grew together in the under ...more

I picked this up at the library on a fluke,--kinda I know someone is currently reading it and we had a discussion about the topic, however I wasn't curious enough to hunt it down. So when I seen it sitting one shelf I thought, "Why not?" And I have to say I liked it. It was a one day read for me, pretty light reading. I admit the last 2/3 chapters were a little redone-dent, yet over all it proved legitimate research and thought-provoking questions on attachment and such. I also want to add that ...more
This book, which I had hoped to be interesting and thought provoking, was more like listening to two people talk who had just moments before realized that they had the same thought in common. It was disorganized and the attempts at apologetics were stilted.

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.

I found this book to be a great tool for insight in how I see God through my childhood experiences.
