Judy Hante, January 2, 2013 (view all comments by Judy Hante)
I adored this book -- it's brilliantly written. I may have to think about it a bit more before I finish writing my review, but essentially it contains so many things I really enjoyed: it has gorgeous prose, it had lots of words I had to look up, it takes place in an academic environment, and it involves characters I really liked and cared about. As a bonus, we get a unique look at one of the Hassidic enclaves in New York. Cass was a wonderful protagonist, a famous atheist. I could have done with a bit less of Professor Klapper, who was really a wacko, but he was still a very memorable character. I had a feeling the book would end just the way it did, but I'm usually wrong, so it was a nice surprise :) Highly recommended. It's a perfect book for an e-reader; I was able to look up words right on the spot and copy/save passages that were so perfect. There were many of those in this book.

It tells you all about god and the theories of the existence of god, I highly recommend this book for philosophers, and this book is also very good for people that are interested in religions, it's a great fiction book.

"Synopsis" by , From the author of The Mind-Body Problem: a witty and intoxicating novel of ideas that plunges into the great debate between faith and reason.


At the center is Cass Seltzer, a professor of psychology whose book, The Varieties of Religious Illusion, has become a surprise best seller. Dubbed “the atheist with a soul,” he wins over the stunning Lucinda Mandelbaum—“the goddess of game theory.” But he is haunted by reminders of two people who ignited his passion to understand religion: his teacher Jonas Elijah Klapper, a renowned literary scholar with a suspicious obsession with messianism, and an angelic six-year-old mathematical genius, heir to the leadership of an exotic Hasidic sect.


Hilarious, heartbreaking, and intellectually captivating, 36 Arguments explores the rapture and torments of religious experience in all its variety.
