Nancy Ellen Abrams on ‘A God That Could Be Real’

Nancy Ellen Abrams

Former atheist philosopher Nancy Ellen Abrams “dares to redefine God” in her new book on science, spirituality, and the future of Earth.

“What happens when an atheist philosopher of science with an eating disorder joins a twelve-step program and is asked to call on a ‘higher power’ that she doesn’t believe in to help her recover? It works, leaving her asking why — and inspiring the inquiry of a lifetime.

In A God that Could Be Real, Abrams introduces us to a redefinition of God that is both true to her heart and consistent with cutting-edge science.
