    What if God proved to be real Beyond all doubt Harry Turtledove, the master of alternate history, creates an alternate present day scenario in Alpha and Omega in which various people react to an incontrovertible series of demonstrations that God exists Set almost entirely in Israel, he gives us the points of view of people on all points on the compass of faith secular archeologists, fundamentalist leaders of all three major western religions, disinterested television personaliti
