Scott Shay’s new book, In Good Faith: Questioning Religion and Atheism, looks at our most fundamental questions about faith and reason, examining atheist arguments with a modern eye, and asserting why and how faith matters today. The son of a Holocaust survivor, Shay is determined to reverse the trend that leads away from religious heritage towards atheism.
