Where does God live? This is not an idle question. Does God dwell there near us or away from us? Does he live in one place or is he willing to relocate? Is it possible to visit his house--and in this case what are the entrance requirements? Does he live in a closed place, totally, forbidden for any human visit? Answering these questions is the subject of God of No Fixed Address. The tone used is very accessible, and sometimes even disturbing. Misconceptions about the Jewish sanctuary, the Jerusalem temple, and the sacrificial system of the Old Testament will be flattened down and swept when necessary. They will triumph the amazing divine will, which takes man off balance, which refuses any confinement, which tears the sails and demolishes the stones to pitch his tent in every heart and in every community of faith. God of No Fixed Address is a journey for those who love discovering new territories.""In this book, Jean-Claude Verrecchia traces throughout the Bible the theme of a living and therefore moving God. His writing is appropriately informal, but based on wide reading and solid scholarship. I commend it as stimulating material for study groups and individual students.""--Paul E. Ellingworth, Honorary Lecturer in New Testament, School of Divinity, History, and Philosophy, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, UK""The author provides a universal theological GPS, guiding both scholars and other readers on fifteen itineraries in the presence of God. The book is much more than what Verrecchia calls 'enlightened vulgarization.' It is an interesting travelogue providing uplifting and helpful information, while avoiding absurd interpretations. The reader will discover many biblical jewels, in anticipation of stepping into the sublime presence of the God of the universe, who cannot be confined within walls.""--Bert Beverly Beach, former secretary, Conference of Secretaries of Christian World Communion, Washington D.C.Jean-Claude Verrecchia is Principal Lecturer in New Testament, Hermeneutics, and Second Temple Judaism at Newbold College of Higher Education, Binfield (UK).
