Therefore, the One whom you worship without knowing, Him I proclaim to you: "God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands.

A single book can change people forever. The True Jesus Christ – Unknown to Christianity does this! There has never been a book like it! Bringing God’s perspective, and in plain language, it is based entirely on Scripture, and known facts of history. It examines the life, ministry and teachings of Jesus as never before, and excludes popular. Truly, the God of the Bible has been unknown to countless millions who have been content to worship a god selected for them by men. Theologians and religionists have sought the opinions of philosophers, scholars and supposed experts, instead of the only important opinion—that of God, found in His Word.

An odd, often clumsy, but also fearless book. To a God Unknown is John Steinbeck's second novel, following a historical romance. I would not have guessed, in reading its first half, that I would end up giving it a 4-star rating, but its insistence on its unusual pantheistic themes, coupled with Steinbeck's tremendous evocation of the interior /5.

`To A God Unknown' is the tale of a ranching family in California and how they try to survive in good years and bad on the ranch. The head of the family starts to worship an oak tree on his land that embodies the spirit of his dead father and develops a deep connectedness to the land and nature, much to the chagrin of his Christian by:   Question: "Who is the unknown god in Acts ?" Answer: In A Paul arrives in Athens, the citadel of the many Greek gods.

In that city was the Areopagus, or Mars Hill, where a council of civic leaders council, also called the Areopagus, had charge of religious and educational matters in Athens.

Steinbeck's To a God Unknown probes into the question of God's personality and more directly, how the various rituals and methods used by people to try and commune with said God are all based out of the same motive. A must read for any Steinbeck fan, or for anyone interested in 4/4(). "To A God Unknown" is Steinbeck's disturbing treatment of spirituality, superstition, and the power of faith.

This edition features an introduction and notes by Steinbeck scholar Robert DeMott. In my opinion, "To A God Unknown" could just be called "An Altar To Me." Again, Steinbeck and I clearly disagree on the nature of God because that is an altar I simply won't bow to. ;) I could probably write for hours on the philosophy that he weaves into this book - both Campbell and Ricketts' theosophy - but so much of it would be speculative.

To A God Unknown, published inis Steinbeck’s second full-length novel and took almost 5 years to complete. It’s interesting to think that Grapes of Wrath and East of Eden took him less time, while this one is so short in comparison and not nearly as acclaimed.
