My new book, The God Upgrade, on Sale Today!

Dear Friends,

I am an ordained Rabbi, and yet I believe that the biggest stumbling block to religion is God.

There. I said it. Any lightening strikes? Okay. Let me explain.

Over the centuries there have been numerous upgrades to the concept of God.

But for whatever reason, the concept of an intervening God - who makes things happen in our lives - is still taught to our kids in religious school and discussed in the media after every natural disaster.

If religion is not going to go the way of the dinosaurs, we have to get the God upgrades.

Since the early times of the Bible, we have been struggling to understand God in a way that reflects what we see in the world. Innocent people suffering. Terrible people being rewarded.

If you're like me, you struggle with these questions. Why does evil exist? Why do bad things happen to good people?

Why did that young person die? Was God angry at him? Was it because he didn't keep Kosher? Because he didn't say the right prayers before and after each meal?

24% of Americans believe in a distant God, who might have gotten the world going, but has been hands off ever since. But we don’t hear from this group. Sometimes it feels like there is no room for rational thinkers.

That's about to change.

In my new book, The God Upgrade, I explore how the concept of God has changed through the centuries, and how these changes have shaped every aspect of Judaism.

I know what I'm saying is controversial.

You may not agree with me.

(Many people very strongly do not.)

But I invite you to join me in this conversation.

P.S. Do you agree with this quote?

When two people relate to each other authentically and humanly, God is the electricity that surges between them.

Written by Martin Buber, it's one of the "upgrades" to God.
