    In A God That Could Be Real, Nancy Abrams explores a new way of thinking about God. She dismantles several common assumptions about God and shows why an omniscient, omnipotent God that created the universe and plans what happens is incompatible with science - but that this doesn’t preclude a God that can comfort and empower us. Abrams finds something worthy of the name “God” in the new science of emergence: God, she argues, is an “emergent phenomenon” that arises from the staggering complexity of humanity’s collective aspirations and is in dialogue with every individual.

Both are just Judaism with the jokes taken out."
