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. Here, he illuminates:

* The making of a holy rascal and the great task of "freeing religion from the parochial and for the perennial"

* The art of "hacking the holy," or pulling back the curtain on religion's fear-based mechanisms of control

* The provocative tools and one-of-a-kind practices of the holy rascal, with guidance for creating your very own "rascally" ways

"Holy rascality is about rekindling spiritual creativity and critical thinking," explains Rabbi Rami. "It is about freeing the human capacity for religiosity--the capacity for making meaning--from the confines of brand-name religion. Holy rascals are playful and lighthearted. While our task is serious--the liberation of humanity from the madness of unhealthy and harmful religions and religious beliefs--our attitude is not." Holy Rascals brings you Rabbi Rami's one-of-a-kind inspiration, humor, and practical insight to help you on your mission.
