This is a multi-faceted work which has generated a ton of discussion. At times, the dialog degenerated into sillyness, but at other times it waxed eloquent. The device of 'casting' God the Father as an African-American woman and the Holy Spirit as an Asian-American woman forces the reader to move out of the conventional paradigm of how to envision the godhead. There are some great take-aways on things like the power of forgiveness, the importance of relationships, and ultimately, the meaning of life. Upshot: chew the meat, spit out the bones.
