New book "So Who is God, Anyway?" by G.S. Payne is released, a humorous, engaging look at big questions that provides nuanced answers and new perspectives

“So Who is God, Anway?: An (UN)orthodox Theory for Doubters, Skeptics, and Recovering Fundamentalists” by G.S. Payne has been released worldwide. This 222-page work of philosophy and social science uses direct language and lighthearted humor to tackle pressing questions about belief, divinity, and the nature of the universe. The book draws on over 30 years of philosophy research, from ancient wisdom to modern thinkers, to present an alternative viewpoint of God that balances the equation of fundamentalism vs. hardcore atheism.

By putting these often complex ideas into an accessible format, Payne brings readers into this thought-provoking topic without bogging them down with dense vocabulary or the need for prerequisite philosophy courses. Through humor and universal principles, he pulls the debate about the existence of God away from an emotionally charged, divisive argument and toward an inclusive, fascinating discussion that allows for nuance, personal interpretation, and a view of God that satisfies skeptics and believers alike.

Through diligent research and fueled by genuine curiosity, Payne identifies branches of each major religion that embrace the concepts of the book. He shows that many of the highly visible fundamentalist viewpoints are not necessarily representative of those faiths, and simultaneously provides compelling reasons for skeptics and atheists to adopt a more flexible set of beliefs.

Inspired by observations of arrogance and unyielding certainty on both sides of this debate, as well as a lifelong interest in religion and philosophy, Payne set out to bring this contentious topic into focus for anyone and everyone, allowing for a more open and fruitful dialogue about higher powers, spirituality, and a broader concept of God.

Fun, insightful, and even a bit edgy, this excellent book presents powerful ideas that can lead to a major shift in beliefs about the nature of God for people on both ends of the faith spectrum.

So Who is God, Anyway (ISBN: 9798989474905 / 9798989474912) can be purchased through retailers worldwide, including Barnes and Noble and Amazon. The hardcover retails for $19.99, the paperback retails for $14.99, and the ebook retails for $7.99. Review copies and interviews are available upon request.

From the back cover:

“A well-written and convincing rumination on the divine. Payne is especially skilled at introducing difficult concepts with an engaging, often humorous prose style.” - Kirkus Reviews

“A fascinating exploration. Whether you’re seeking personal growth of a new perspective on life, Payne’s work will captivate and challenge you to think beyond what you have been taught.” - Midwest Book Review

“A thoughtful and accessible approach for the lay believer or nonbeliever who wants a firmer basis in understanding what and how to believe.” - IndieReader

Does God exist? Do we live in a natural world or a supernatural world? Author and researcher G.S. Payne outlines conclusions drawn from over thirty years of investigation into the existence and nature of God, and presents a bold theory backed by the thinking of some of the biggest brains in the history of Eastern and Western philosophical thought.

In a humorous, provocative, thought-provoking, and always entertaining discourse, Payne makes a convincing case that there is another way to consider God besides either 1) the robed, bearded “sky God,” or 2) the atheist position that there’s no God at all. Under the weight of Payne’s persuasive presentation, this false choice hardly stands a chance. So Who is God, Anyway? Delivers splendidly – for doubters, skeptics, recovering fundamentalists, or anyone looking for a fun book to read about some damn big questions!
