The God debate: are you an atheist with a soul?


Do you believe in God, or are you an "atheist with a soul" - like the main character in the book, "36 Arguments for the Existence of God"?

The novel follows the story of philosopher Cass Seltzer, who becomes an intellectual celebrity when he writes a book listing the arguments for the existence of God, and highlights the flaws in each one.

George Alagiah spoke to book's author, Rebecca Goldstein.

GMT with George Alagiah is broadcast on weekdays at 1200 and 1230 GMT on BBC World News. Find out more information about regional broadcast times here.
