CAT & DOG THEOLOGY

This is the book that I wished to buy right after I had my tooth extraction. Unfortunately, they are only available on online purchase, and that end me up buying another stuff just to give my self consolation prize for losing my tooth.
.
I made the online order March 28th and it arrived this afternoon. This is a second hand book from BARNES & NOBLES. I was very glad I found a second hand book on sale. I always go after the cheaper option and I am not disappointed because it doesn't look used at all.

Book Reviews:
CAT & DOG THEOLOGY
By Bob Sjogren and Gerald Robison
There is a joke about cats and dogs that conveys their differences perfectly. A dog says, 'You pet me, you feed me, you shelter me, you love me, you must be God.' A cat says, 'You pet me, you feed me, you shelter me, you love me, I must be God.' This book challenges the readers' understanding of their relationship with God. Our understanding of how we relate to God may not be wrong, but it may be incomplete. The God-given traits of cats ('you exist to serve me') and dogs('I exist to serve you') can be similar to certain theological attitudes held by many Christians. In our personal theologies, some attitudes may draw us closer to God, and others can also pull us away from Him. This book will help the reader differentiate those attitudes, and, as a result, draw closer to the God who delights in them!
