The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the word "psychoanalyze" as:   to treat the mental and emotional problems of (a patient) by having the patient talk about dreams, feelings, memories, etc. : to treat (someone) by means of psychoanalysis

In this podcast, we attempt to psychoanalyze God himself (actually, we'll deal with several deities claiming the One True God" title), and we'll talk to Dr. Valerie Tarico, psychologist and author of the book "Trusting Doubt: A Former Evangelical Looks at Old Beliefs in a New Light." http://www.amazon.com/Trusting-Doubt-Former-Evangelical-Beliefs/dp/0977392937

Dr. Tarico has tackled the psychoanalysis of God on her YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/TrustingDoubt, and she lectures across the country.  She joins us for the show and takes your calls.
