The Existence of God can be a challenging topic when brought up between theists and non-theists. Even so, there is much productive discussion to be had on the subject when people of differing perspectives meet.
The Xing paints a portrait of six different encounters between persons of different professional backgrounds. In these chance meetings, the professionals will present their varying points of view. It seeks to highlight what most will think about, but few are willing to talk about: the question of Gods existence. This exploration occurs through a variety of scenarios. A professor, through unforeseen circumstances, meets a mechanic. A lawyer speaks to his client, who is a truck driver. A neurosurgeon talks with his IT, and so on. Throughout their exchanges, a wide range of topics will be brought up.
The inspiration for this novel comes from the Book of Job, in which Job debates with his friends over Gods involvement in times of suffering, or lack thereof. This novel depicts a series of civil and friendly discussions between persons who do not agree, which is really intended to inspire readers.
