This very readable novel mixes a murder mystery with sociology and theology and will challenge you with its provocative depiction of G-d. Could this be the answer that you’ve been looking for to the question of why G-d allows the righteous to suffer? In the first session of this two session class Rabbi Saks will explore the many issues the novel expertly raises – why people pray, the Jewish view of the afterlife, differences between Judaism and Christianity, anti-semitism, ghosts, and why we dress as we do. The second session will be devoted to G-d and the novel’s shocking thesis about the nature of the deity. This 256 page book is available from Amazon in various formats, but even if you don’t read it, you’ll enjoy the class and be able to participate.
