Product Description


'Plenty of food for thought among the chuckles as you would expect from this author.'

'His [Blue's] Thoughs for the Day on Radio 4 appeal to athiet and believer alike, and are renowned for their wisdom, humanity and humour. Now Rabbi Blue has written a guide for the spiritually perplexed which retains all those qualities while being free from the constraints of the two minute broadcast.' --The Baptist Times

'As a book to be dipped into, this will appeal to all his fans - and will surprise many others. Certainly, it surprised me.' --Church Times

'He has written a book, The Godseeker's Guide, a sort of spiritual self-help manual intended to aid those in search of spiritual meaning.' --The Independent

The Godseeker s Guide is an ideal holiday read. It lifts the spirits with its humour, which Blue has described as the unofficial scripture of Jewish life . Most powerful is the author s wisdom, such as, We need a religious home and not a religious prison and that, An unselfish action is an invitation for heaven to be present. This is a warm, wise and gently humorous book from Rabbi Lionel Blue. He reveals his own spiritual journey and offers insights into the nature of God, Life and suffering. --RE Today

4.0 out of 5 stars The Godseeker's Guide 14 Dec 2010
This is an eye-opener of a book. Having heard Lionel Blue on radio I hadn't realised the problems he has had in his life as a gay Jewish boy. A very heartwarming story of a life of faith against the odds and filled with God-given love and humour.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Godseeker's Guide 8 Jan 2011
A very easy book to read. The author held my attention throughout and I just couldn't put it down. The content is informative and entertaining and is not only for those seeking God but also for those who already know Him and are always seeking to know Him better. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about other peoples life experiences both personal and spiritual.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wit, wisdom and warmth 2 Nov 2012
"I went into religion because I had problems," says Lionel Blue, "and I stayed with it because it worked." In this well made 186-page paperback, Rabbi Blue - a much loved contributor to Thought for the Day on BBC Radio 4's Today programme - tells the story of his own religious life and shares some of the lessons that it has taught him.

The headings of the eleven chapters are: The Purpose of this Book; Why Did I Become a Godseeker?; Falling in Love and its Results; Repeated Later - The Positive Consequences of Religious Experience; The Holocaust at War; The Hidden Problems of Religious Experience; Unofficial Seminaries and Teachers; Hospitalization; Scriptures of Tradition and Personal Scriptures of Life Experience; God at Work! Getting to Grips with the World; and Ageing, Dying, Death and Heaven.

This is not the kind of book that seeks to treat faith argumentatively. (If you're looking for a more cerebral rabbinical approach to theology, you'd perhaps be better off with the pellucid Jonathan Sacks.) Rabbi Blue's book is confessional, emotional and practical, very much written from the heart and addressed to it. The book sometimes repeats itself, and a critic sterner than me could accuse it of occasionally needing the nip and tuck of a good editor. But it's full of laugh-out-loud humour, it is, I think, wise beyond the wisdom of apologetics and, above all, it is quite marvellously kind. For me, it has been an inspiration and a tonic. I can't imagine how anyone could read it without ending up a little happier and a little closer to heaven as a result.

5.0 out of 5 stars It does exactly what the title says! 23 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just a wonderful book, it came into my life just at the right time, and being on my kindle means that I have itwith me at all times.
Lionel has allowed me to believe in Him-up-there in my way, without having to believe in all the Bible stuff that does not apply to today. It is written for everybody and the lovely thing is that as you read it you can hear Lionel's voice. it is full of humour, easy to read and very uplifting. Thank you Lionel.
