Is there, or is it even possible for there to be, a concise, logical, clear and commonly-agreed upon definition of the concept of God?

No one can seem to give a definitive answer to this question. You'll come across people who will say things like, "God is spirit", "God is love", "God is the absolute, non-contingent, eternal reason for all being" and so on, but...

No, I'm not happy with those answers. God to me is an awfully amorphous concept, and if you repeat the word often enough in your mind it quickly becomes meaningless, a sound or mantra like "Om". Three letters strung together, meaning everything and nothing.

Does God exist? Is the question even meaningful to begin with? Somehow, I think we've been wasting our time trying to find God, and perhaps we should finally ditch the (non) concept. As someone whose name I cannot now recall once put it, "The search for God was the biggest wild-goose chase in all of human history".
