Right-Sizing God

"Looking for a big-enough God?" -- the hook on a small ad in a New Yorker sidebar for the Episcopal Book/Resource Center (www.episcopalbookstore.org).

A god to fit any-sized dream, any faith, any lifestyle hole, large or small. My kind of god, I suspect (i.e. one that hasn't the chutzpah to exist).

(Too often American protestant gods seem to be merely super-human (or, more accurately, Super-American), rather than the ineffably infinite and interesting God of my (Church Of England) youth).

The god is the measure of the man.
