    The Homebrewed Christianity Guide to God: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know about the Almighty

    In this latest installment of the Homebrewed Christianity series, Eric E. Hall approaches the question of God from various perspectives.

Competing versions of God include Your Hippie Aunt, St. Joan of Arc, and even the muscle-headed goons from Jersey Shore. At the end of this romp through history and pop culture, Hall argues that the God you need may be the very God you rejected years ago.
