About the book
God is real. Everything we say about God is made up. Holy Rascals is a rousing call to anyone ready to go beyond “isms” and ideologies, and live in the world as a liberating force of justice, compassion, and joy.
“Holy rascals are spiritual culture jammers who use humor, play, creativity, and critical thinking to reveal the human origins of religions— and how religions mask their true origins behind the conceit of divine origins,” writes Rabbi Rami. In part one, he describes the making of a holy rascal and the great task of “freeing religion from the parochial and for the perennial.” Part two explores the art of “hacking the holy,” or pulling back the curtain on religion’s fear-based mechanisms of control. Part three presents some of the provocative tools and one-of-a-kind practices of the holy rascal, with guidance for creating your very own “rascally” ways.
