The OMG Chronicles
One Man's Quest To Discover What God Means To People All Over The WorldUnknown - 2011
In 2006, frustrated with religious turmoil, fanaticism, and fundamentalism, filmmaker Peter Rodger set out on a quest across 23 countries to shoot the epic nonfiction motion picture Oh My God in an attempt to understand what the concept of God meant to people in all walks of life. This book chronicles Peters extraordinary adventure as he circled the globe, asking an amazing array of characters the simple (but not-so-simple) question: What is God? This is a story of overcoming challenges, as well as a unique travelogue and social snapshot. It delves into the pain of persevering in times of trouble and is also a testament to adhering to ones own convictions. Philosophical, searching, funny, and very personal, this work will make you laugh out loud, and at other times make you cry. It is devoid of theology, but touches faith on both religious and nonreligious levels. It is objective, yet there are many opinions. Above all, it is a chance to be whisked away from the comfort of your own home to visit places and people, famous and not; and absorb their profound, irreverent, blasphemous, spiritual musings . . . on an age-old query. Their words will stir up passion, curiosity, self-examination, and wild imagination. Oh My God! Prepare for the ride.
