Hello? G-d?: An Exploration of Life's Most Fundamental Question by Shlomo Ben Zeev is the first book in the author's Core Emmuna series. In this installment, Ben Zeev addresses the singular question of whether or not there is a higher power, lending his extensive knowledge of the Torah and the practical application of both science and general philosophy to answering it. Ben Zeev has compiled supporting passages and texts into the body of this enlightening piece of work and presented a highly convincing study of (and explanations in favor of) one of the most compelling questions asked by mankind.
Hello? G-d? is a genuinely enlightening read for even those with just a casual interest in "Life's Most Fundamental Question". For those such as myself who share in Shlomo Ben Zeev's desire to dig deeper, this book is wonderfully engrossing. I think what I appreciated most is that throughout the narrative Ben Zeev presents answers without the fluff that often accompanies theology books. He offers clarity and concise arguments and examples with a simple straightforwardness that serves to enhance his points while still remaining faithful to the sources (ie: " You cannot make life from something that is not alive."). To say I'm intrigued is something of an understatement. There's no question I will be looking forward to the next two books in the Core Emmuna series, and would absolutely recommend this first segment to all who have an interest in scratching beneath the surface in search of answers to a complex question.
