The God Squad
The God Squad is not your average advice column. Rabbi Marc Gellman employs his years of religious and philosophical study and experience to answer reader questions on topical and spiritual issues, from interfaith marriage to news events. He also draws on the expertise of numerous advisors to offer authentic insights on the rich palette of faiths in America. Gellman writes in a lively, non-preachy style that speaks directly to readers. Special holiday messages.
The God Squad Samples
Q: I've never been able to reconcile a fair, just and loving God with eternal damnation. I start with the assumption that we're all born equally capable of good and evil..
Q: I greatly appreciated your recent columns about passing on faith to children. A: Belief in Jesus as the Christ is the defining belief for all branches of Christianity.
I received lots of comments on my recent column about an interfaith couple having a tough time deciding whether or not to get married -- and if they did, how to pick the faith in which to raise their children.
Q: Since losing our young daughter three years ago, many well-meaning friends and acquaintances have told me that prayer is the answer.
Q: I've just finished reading Harper Lee's second novel, "Go Set A Watchman." Scout, like so many of us, placed her father, Atticus Finch, above human frailty, but in "Watchman" he's a racist.
Q: I admire your column for its wisdom, common sense and spiritual insights, and hope you can provide guidance for our family. Our children attended religious school and were bar and bat mitzvahed.
