Without Guarantee: in search of a Vulnerable God  by Anglican priest Bob Purdy is a book you will either dislike intensely or be drawn to as butterfly to flower. Love it or hate it, this is a book worth reading: a provocative look at the way God lives in relationship to the world. Purdy believes that God always is saying “No!” to the exercis of power. God as Love is vulnerable toward the beloved world, for love is always vulnerable.
