    About the Guest























    Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman, Ph.D.

    Seekers of Meaning 5/13/2022: Rabbis Rifat Sonsino and Richard Agler, editors, “A God We Can Believe In”

    Rabbi Richard Address chats with this week’s guests, Rabbi Rifat Sonsino, center, and Rabbi Richard Agler, right.







    This week’s guests on the Seekers of Meaning TV Show and Podcast are Rabbis Rifat Sonsino and Richard Agler, editors of a new collection of essays, A God We Can Believe In.







    Do you believe in God? So many people answer this question in the negative because the God they have been taught to believe in is simply not all that believable. In the twenty-first century, a Deity who intervenes in history, supernaturally responds to prayers, favors and protects his faithful and chosen, and executes righteous judgment engenders doubt and disbelief in thinking people of all faiths, as well as those of no practicing faith.









    A God We Can Believe In is a response to this moment. The book includes contributions from leading rabbis and scholars that articulate paths to heart, mind, and soul with God-teachings that are spiritually compelling and intellectually sound. The authors present God in ways that are consistent with the facts that higher learning has established, the principles of reason, and our shared life experiences. In these pages you will find a God that cannot be brushed aside by educated moderns; a God that does not violate the realities of logic or natural law; a God presented in accessible language; a God that can be lived with and lived for. It is a book for thoughtful individuals everywhere.
