The Dream of God: A Call to Return

by Verna J. Dozier

Paperback, 1991




A new way to cut out the noise of the world and focus on faith: "A small masterpiece." --Marcus Borg   The oversaturation of news and constant arguments about politics, biases, and differences has changed how we look at the world. So much focus is placed institutions and establishments, individual struggles and traumas, that we forget the things that really matter.   When Verna Dozier found herself disillusioned by the world she was living in, she decided to go back to the basics, cut out the noise, and find the truth of her beliefs. What she discovered was a new way to look at faith, one that is at once more intimate and more demanding, rooted in original teachings, traditions, and scripture. She found what she calls the Dream of God, the truest version of what humanity is called to do and to be--outside of where our failures have led us.   In this powerful and persuasive book, Dozier explores her findings and shares them with the world, not only illuminating her own point of view but demonstrating a whole new way of connecting with faith and each other on our own journeys.  … (more)

The weight of her message belies the shortness of the book. There is much to think about in its 114 pages.
