Many Americans are disaffected by traditional religion for the way it can perpetuate conflict and ignore science and reason. Nancy Ellen Abrams, lawyer, philosopher of science, and one-time atheist, is one of them. And yet, when she turned to the recovery community to face a personal struggle, she found that imagining a higher power gave her a new freedom. Intellectually, this was quite surprising. She began to wonder, Could anything actually exist in this strange new universe that is worthy of the name 'God'? In A God That Could Be Real, Abrams explores the radical new possibility of a God that is not supernatural but real in the modern scientific universe. The God Abrams explores unites all of humanity and provides the wisdom and larger sense of meaning that we need to face our future, as well as the future of our damaged planet, together-while being powerful enough to change a life.
