I spent the holidays with Scott Shay, banker extraordinaire, visionary Jewish community leader, provocative author – and truth seeker. True, he was in Manhattan while I was in Jerusalem. And we’ve actually only met three times. But his latest book, In Good Faith: Questioning Religion and Atheism, is so personal and accessible that while reading it, you feel you’re communing with him – and Him! I first “met” Shay in 2007, when I devoured his bold manifesto Getting Our Groove Back: How to Energize American Jewry. I remember being impressed by a Jewish community insider – a Wall Street banker for God’s sake – speaking candidly and courageously. Perhaps most dramatically, he declared that if, as an investor, he saw a company bleeding clients at the rate that Jews were abandoning Conservative Judaism, he’d advise: Shut it down!Shay’s charming, thoughtful, thought-provoking new book required even more chutzpah. He’s writing for God’s sake, defending the Deity in a world that worships the New Atheist writers instead. Rather than simply embracing some mysterious prime mover, some watered-down Big Banger people could more easily accept, Shay doubles down. He bravely champions the Bible’s politically incorrect, supposedly wrathful, unreasonable, choosing-only-one-people, Jewish God.
