Just finished reading another Marcus Borg book
There are many common misconceptions about the nature of God. For example, many think of God as a seperate being outside of our physical reality. This is known as Transcendance. We know that the universe is incrediblly large, which means that God must be very distant and remote to be outside of our physical world. I found this God to be ineffective, which has resulted in a crisis of faith. However there is another conception of God taught by the Church which is known as his Immanence or closeness to us. Although it is paradoxical, the truth is that both of these concepts about God are true and we need both to be in balance for a healthy view of God.
