God at the Edge
by Niles Elliot Goldstein
Sick of the candy coated religious world that sees everything through rose colored glasses? Tried looking for God in organized religion and discovered that He was nowhere to be found?
Author Niles Elliot Goldstein can relate. God at the Edge is a candid exploration of the spiritual side of human existence and the time-honored quest for finding God. Goldstein, a self proclaimed “rabbinate on the edge,” takes a fresh, no-nonsense approach to the topic, using powerful examples of his own personal experiences, his struggles with internal darkness and his encounters with inner demons.
Through his adversity and sufferings, Goldstein has found that God is not only in the bright and beautiful rooms of life, but in the dark and dismal corners as well. Well-written and engaging, God at the Edge is a straight-forward presentation of the doubts, fears and uncertainties we all face during times of trial, and of how God fits into it all. “It sometimes does take a journey to the edge,” claims Goldstein, “into territory that is not always comfortable, to discover the spiritual sustenance we so often crave.”
