Excerpts from Newberger’s 36 Arguments for the Existence of God

In a new novel that provocatively blends fiction and nonfiction, 36 Arguments for the Existence of God: A Work of Fiction, philosopher and novelist Rebecca Newberger Goldstein essays her thoughts about what is perhaps the longest running argument in human history: Is there a God that’s omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent? Through the character Cass Seltzer, a psychologist who has become a celebrity by writing a book that explains “how irrelevant the belief in God can be to religious experience,” Goldstein boldly takes on the ambitious God-existence theme by crossing over into the realm of fiction.
