Reviews - What do customers think about Where Will the Atheists Pray?: Life and Laughter in Israel?

There and Back Again  Aug 26, 2005
Bill Finn's is a voice like no other, at once refreshingly mordant and bitingly satirical as he probes the conflicts, contradictions, and idiosyncrasies of life in Israel. Not beholden to any political or religious ideology, Bill is a principled skeptic, waiting to be convinced, yet mesmerized by the twists and turns of the Israeli psyche. A citizen of two worlds, Bill's askew Zionism distinguishes him from every other writer who has sought to encompass this elusive subject.

For the record, this commentator is an American-born Jewish writer based in Tzfat, in the Upper Galilee region of northern Israel. I've known Bill for 25 years and have shared a few adventures with him. We see things differently, but I admire his pertinacity and resiliency.

A funny Israel book about politics and religion!? Of course!  Aug 21, 2005
Much like his namesake in the musical theater world, William L. Finn tackles meaty subjects and deep questions with a sense of humor, integrity, and honesty. He offers a view of the Israel situation that mixes the insider and the the outsider. His approach to sensitive issues shows that he has grappled with the comlexities involved, without shying away from taking a stand, or stating an opinion. At least as important, the book is darned entertaining, and a really easy read.
Science of survival  Aug 14, 2005
My family lived in what is now the land of Israel for five generations. I have made numerous trips to to this country. My time there has totaled about three and a half years.

Although they will not tell you that (Israelis do not like to act dramatic, at least not in front of strangers), the law in the land of Israel is very simple: Plain Survival. But the science of survival there is made of a great part of sweet and sour humor, and this is what Bill Finn has captured during his years in this beleaguered and tiny country.

Each anecdote is recounted with a dose of salt and pepper, gudgingly covering the writer's love and admiration for the Israelis' resiliency-coupled with a necessary dose of fatalism-for a nation having known in its 57 years of existence, four wars and incessant and almost daily terrorist attacks in between.

People who have been to Israel will smile and maybe shed a tear; those who have not will be surprised, touched, and will want to know more.
Bill Finn eloquently expresses my feelings  Aug 3, 2005
Bill Finn, in "Where Will Atheists Pray", expresses the feelings that I and so many ex-patriate Americans share. I found myself laughing, and oftentimes unexpectedly crying. The Lubovaticher Rebbe of blessed memory once described how we know something is real TRUTH: Your body tells you so. You get a physical reaction. When something is real TRUTH. I get tears in my eyes. I found myself reading Bill's book through clouds of tears and laughter. Kol HaKavod!(Right on Brother!)

makes you think and makes you laugh  Jul 29, 2005
This is a great book to make you think and make you laugh. Little stories and vignettes to read one at a time, or all at once. It is surprisingly complex and thoughtful, but with wry and occasional laugh-out-loud humor.

Finn is a perceptive writer, with insights into everyday and unusual situations. I suspect we will be hearing good things from him for many years to come.
