For fans of Life of Pi, The Alchemist, and Ishmael, comes a spiritual tale about a man who has lost his place in a seemingly pointless world.
Told in a comedic, often dark, and often Socratic tone, Living With God is a book that shows us that God might just be each and every one of us.
DESCRIPTION:What if God had a secret?
Judah Mayfield, a homeless nobody with a deadly pill addiction, would rather think about other things. In fact, he would rather just sit on his park bench and wait for the sweet release of death to come than think about such nonsensical fluff.
But after a near drug overdose, a man in a suit approaches him and won't stop asking those exact kinds of questions...
Why did the crazies always come to him?
Yet it isn't until Judah realizes he had taken the last of his pills, and begins to panic for fear of living a sober life (which would be just terrible), that the man gives him a strange proposition. The man said that he would supply Judah with the drugs he needs, but only if he follows four simple rules.
Of course Judah listened. For the possibility of free drugs, who wouldn't?
The rules were:
One: He must get a job.
Two: He must sit in silence all day every Sunday. No food. No Water.
Three: He must love somebody. Anyone. It just had to be genuine. And...
Four: He must accept the man as God.
Initially denying the man in the suit and chalking him up as a kook, Judah went on with his usual disgust with life. But after a strange incident with a beautiful woman and her daughter, Judah suddenly changes his mind and accepts the offer on a whim, realizing all too late that, God, or whoever the man is, has secrets that might be better left behind closed doors.
A spiritual comedy for anyone who has ever questioned the nature of God, the nature of the human spirit, and the nature of truth and love, Living With God isn't anything like you thought it would be.
