Psychosis has taken over. God's brain is gone. There is no cure. There is only God. There is only us. The Psychosis of God is about exploring the divine through the mentally ill amongst us. The image of our creator is the only tool we have for liberating God. The prison of our normative expectations steals our capacity for divine connection. Wake up The mentally ill God is here to set the captives free. Think right Perfection is now found in defection. Look out Crazy is the only way out of this world alive. For BACK COVER: ""Jeff Hood is one of the great theological writers of our time. In teaching me what it means to be crazy, Jeff has taught me how to follow God."" --Christian Parks, Queer Anabaptist Pilgrim ""God is nuts Dr. Hood's theology proves it."" --Rhonda Love, Professor of Public Health, University of Toronto (retired) ""Some of the things you read in this book will make you mad.Keep reading.Some of the things you read will challenge what you have been taught about God.Keep reading.Some of the things you read will make you think and think hard.Start thinking.It is past time to think of God made in our image and begin to explore the reality of who God is."" --Michelle Stafford, Transgender Southern Baptist Minister ""Jeff Hood is crazy as shit. This book is crazy as shit. I have no doubt you'll enjoy every word."" --Dan Kiniry, Prophetic Mover at Pilgrims in the Park ""Shock is Jeff Hood's most formidable tool. In these pages of theological exploration, even God gets shocked."" --Fred Clarkson, Activist Priest, Episcopal Diocese of Texas ""Just when I thought his writing couldn't get any better, Jeff Hood took me on a magical and painful journey to the mind of God. I'm changed."" --Jason Redick, United Methodist Rabble Rouser For INSIDE COVER: ""Is the human brain created in the image of God, including the parts impacted by mental illness? Jeff Hood argues for a theology that takes seriously God's intimate knowledge of mental illness, inviting us to see God suffering with us and saving us. At times disturbing and ultimately hopeful, this book is a welcomed addition to the conversation of the intersection of mental health and Christianity. Hood testifies to the expansive reach of God's love, even into the most diseased and disordered parts of the brain."" --Sarah Griffith Lund, Author of Blessed are the Crazy: Breaking the Silence About Mental Illness, Family and Church ""The Reverend Dr. Jeff Hood has penned yet another uncomfortable book. For some, The Psychosis of God will prove unnerving because of the topic; for others, because of the writing itself, which borders on the manic; and for those of us who are non-theists, because of the unrelentingly theological approach. And yet, this is a worthwhile read, perhaps even a necessary one. Right and wrong, beauty and ugliness, angels and demons --all dualities are mere appearances, conceptual constructs arising, enduring briefly, and subsiding in the empty luminosity of the unborn mind. Dr. Hood invites us to visit this luminous perfection, this emptiness where all is possible, the good and the bad."" --Tashi Nyima, New Jonang Buddhist Community ""Rev. Jeff Hood is the truth. I don't know anyone else better able to explain how intensely spiritual mental illness is. This book is a bridge of hope and understanding for those who are suffering."" --Olinka Green, Ambassador of Soul Justice ""While most of Christianity is stuck in an ableist theology of Platonic ideals, Rev. Hood seeks to provide liberation: liberation from thinking that our minds and bodies must be normalized, by showing us that even God has struggled. This book shows why it is vital to have theologies from marginalized and non-normative voices. May we all be challenged to see God's image in ourselves."" --Ember Kelley, Transgender Faith Activist ""In his newest book, Dr. Jeff Hood continues fulfilling his call to queer prophetic troublemaking. In the true spirit of liberation"
