In decades of Christian ministry, in thousands of conversation with thousands of people from all walks of life, I have found that most people are more interested in the intricacies of their cell phone plan or their retirement accounts than the intricacies of where they will spend eternity.
So to see such a substantial conversation portrayed here was very rewarding.
Because if you know there is nothing then you have the room to provide your own meaning.
Not really, or maybe not as much as you may think. This actually underlies the difference between what are known as Ethnic Religions and Universalizing Religions.

Judaism is a very much an Ethnic Religion in that you are a Jew and as such you are religiously Jewish. Those two just go together because they are part of the identity. Though with that said the reality of the secular Jew is very much a real thing and is the largest single religious identification group in Israel or even in the US.

And it took the 20th century and thinkers that came with the time to really show this way is possible.

Angela, you are most welcome. I am delighted that the serialized format worked well for you as a reader. Thank you very much for ordering the paperback! I hope you find it equally (or more) rewarding.
Thanks again for posting your book. I've ordered the print copy and am looking forward to reading it. However, I would also like to say how much I enjoyed the forced delay in readying the story. I thought about several of the points and discussions more than I would have if I could have just gobbled up the plot and pictures.
All the best!
Angela
