“The thing that motivated me to read this book was the controversy. While I found the story compelling, I had a lot of trouble with this book.
If an author uses a real person in their work of fiction, it is expected that they will use accurate facts in their portrayal of that character. While there are some accurate facts about God in this book--God is love, the collaboration of the Trinity, etc.--there are even more inaccurate facts.
I also had a problem with the way the author used the front material of this book. Typically a forward is non-fiction information, and a prologue is fictional. With the author choosing to use the forward for fictional content, the reader is misled into believing that the story is based on true events. Considering that the primary content of this book is the person of God, I find that highly objectionable.
My main concern is that readers of this book will take it as an accurate portrayal of who God is. The author bears a heavy responsibility for misleading thousands.”
