Welcome to the on-line version of Servants or Friends?—Another Look at God.

Some of the greatest cruelty has been perpetrated in the name of religion. Everything seems to depend on the kind of god people worship. Arbitrary, tyrannical gods tend to produce followers like themselves. Millions who see no sense in worshipping such a god, have simply turned away.

What kind of neighbors would a friendly god produce—a god who values nothing higher than freedom and individuality, a god who would rather treat his followers not as servants but as friends?

Servants or Friends? takes another look at the evidence. Is the God of the Bible a friendly person—eager to restore people's dignity and self-respect?

This has not been a hasty study. The book is based on 135 year-long trips through the Bible in company with thousands of people, young and old. On these trips through all sixty-six books, nothing is overlooked—including the “dark speech” and the most forbidding stories!

Questions and suggestions from the Bible readers in 118 different lands have contributed to the preparation of Servants or Friends?

As you can see from the menu on the left, the on-line version is a work in progress. As chapters become available, their choices will become active. The red arrow points at your present location, while the star-bursts show you your other options (present or future)
