When God spoke to Moses, the words got carved in stone. When he talked to Dale Kohler, they were tapped into a terminal.

Nevertheless, the young technician believes, and he takes his story to Roger Lambert, professor of divine studies at a fashionable Ivy League school. What follows is pure Updike: the man of religion talks the convert out of his faith.

"Updike takes on themes of great importance and treats them in a way that invites us in rather than puts us off. Half banter, half serious, ROGER'S VERSION is one of his best." (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)

From the Inside Flap:

A born-again computer whiz kid bent on proving the existence of God on his computer meets a middle-aged divinity professor, Roger Lambert, who'd just as soon leave faith a mystery. Soon the computer hacker begins an affair with professor Lambert's wife -- and Roger finds himself experiencing deep longings for a trashy teenage girl.
