God Game - Andrew Michael Greeley

Andrew M. Greeley - God Game ( 1986 ).
In The Popular 1986 Book entitled: " God Game " - written by: Andrew Michael Greeley [ that means: " The Manly One, Who Is Like Unto God, Is He That Has Been Hidden In The Meadow " ] -  we have been provided Yet Another Important & Prophetical Allegory.

You see, dear brothers and sisters, ' There Is A Reason For Every Word In All Of Those Biblical Scriptures '... and, believe it or not, Joel Chapter 2 is - just as much - Merely One Single Part Of Them!

In fact, let's ( just now ) start reading Some Of It, shall we:

" And it shall come to pass afterward that I Will Pour Out My Own Spirit Upon All FleshYour Sons and Your Daughters shall ProphesyYour Old Men shall Dream Dreams and Your Young Men shall See Visions.
And also, upon My Menservants and upon My Maidservants I Will Pour Out My Own Spirit In Those Days.
And I will show wonders in The Heavens and in The EarthBlood, Fire, and Pillars Of SmokeThe Sun shall be turned into Darkness, and The Moon into Blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of The Lord.
And, it shall come to pass that whoever calls upon The Name Of The Lord shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, as The Lord has said: Among The Remnant Whom The Lord Calls '. " - Joel 2:28-32.

Warner - " To Provide You A Heads Up ".
But, of course, you probably still don't believe me. And, while I would most certainly love to provide you a link to The Book Trailer, like most of the books that were being published prior to 2010; sadly, There Still Isn't One Of Them To Show You.
***NOTE: Perhaps, one of you readers would ( actually ) step up to the challenge? Because, even a fan made trailer is quite often better than nothing.... }



God Game: Is A Book About One Special Man; Whom The Universe Himself Has Chosen; To Perform The Roles And Functions Of God....

In fact, let's just examine The Interesting Book Summary from Enotes.com:
" While the narrator is testing a new computer game called: ' Duke and Duchess, ' lightning strikes his satellite dish, and he abruptly finds that he is literally “ God ” in a parallel universe. His “ characters ” look to him for guidance, solutions, and protection, but he finds himself able merely to influence, not compel their responses; by free will they always can ( and usually do ) resist “ God’s ” grace.
As he comes to love his created characters, they begin to invade his dreams and even seem to appear as friends and neighbors in his own world. He struggles to end the war between the Duke and Duchess and bring them together in love with the help of Ranora, an “ ilel ” ( an angel/ imp/ fairy of sorts ) in the form of a saucy teenage girl. Like God, he loves this universe he has created and feels both responsible for and frustrated by his own contrary, and stiff-necked people.
Greeley has created an interesting variation on the old science fiction theme of being a deity in another world. This narrator, a thinly veiled self-portrait, is a compassionate and responsible “ God ” who often finds himself unable to do the good he intends. His people thwart him, curse him, and desperately need him, but his powers are strictly limited. In the end, they have as profound an effect upon him as he does upon them. " - excerpt from, Enotes.com.
You see, folks: " Who Made Who "!
But, hey, What Do I Know....

Well, I do know this much... Mathew Chapter 25 ( very clearly ) says:
" Who then is That Faithful And Wise Servant, whom his master made ruler over all of his household, to give them their food in due season? 
Blessed Is That Servant whom his master, when he comes, Will Find Him So Doing!
Assuredly, I say to you that: ' He Will Make Him The Ruler That Is Set Over All Of His Goods '. " - Mathew 25:45-47.
Hey, I'm Just Saying....

Some things in life, really are, a whole lot: " Stranger Than Fiction "!


Ahava and Shalom. 

May Yahweh's Own: Love and Peace - be upon you!
