Product Overview

A Plausible God evaluates the new God by analyzing the theology of three recent Jewish thinkers ?Mordechai Kaplan, Michael Lerner, and Arthur Green?and compares faith in the new God to disbelief in any gods. Mitchell Silver reveals what is at stake in the choice between naturalistic liberal theology and a nontheistic naturalism without gods. Silver poses the question: ?If it is to be either the new God or no God, what does?what should?determine the choice?? Although Jewish thinkers are used as the primary exemplars of new God theology, Silver explores developments in contemporary Christian thought, Eastern religious traditions, and ?New Age? religion. A Plausible God constitutes a significant contribution to current discussions of the relationship between science and religion, as well as to discussions regarding the meaning of the idea of God itself in modern life.
