Skye Jethani wants his readers to experience life with God, but first he has to clear the field of four insufficient ways people relate to God. Some people see God as a giver of rules and rituals to follow (LIFE UNDER GOD), or the provider of useful principles to observe (LIFE OVER GOD), or as a genie to grant us our desires (LIFE FROM GOD), or as a commander sending us forth to accomplish a mission (LIFE FOR GOD). Each of these ways of relating to God has its place, of course (we are to ask God to meet our needs and God does send us into service, for example). But UNDER, OVER, FROM, and FOR--none of these prepositions alone can adequately define the relationship to God we're meant to have as well as the preposition "with." It's LIFE WITH GOD that we're being called into. Readers will immediately see themselves in one of the four inadequate ways of relating to God (mine was "LIFE FOR GOD"), and will remember again that there is more to discover.
