The consequent distractions felt by the writer may not, however, have been without gain to some of his readers. The eyes of many have been opened afresh to the vision of the Eternal Goal- they have looked into deep wells. Men and women have been flung back upon primary realities. Hurt by a doubts pain, they are asking once more the ageless question, Where is God? What is He? What do we know of Him? The question of the moment is the question of God. It must make a difference to faith and life whether the answer echoes the haunting fear of the soul - a God afar oft, or succours its wistful hope - a God nigh at hand. Minds sorely perplexed plead, Give us first of all a God, and give us next a God who is always with us. It may be of some consequence, therefore, that the subject of the immanence of God, which is bound to move in the forefront during the theological transition of coming years, should lie before us for discussion in these troubled days. Whether belief in Gods immanence in the world makes life less mysterious or more so in such times as these is a farther question. Many reverent thinkers are seeking an answer.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
