This important book sketches out the questions currently asked about God. In the midst of religious pluralism and agnosticism, Houtepen asks, how can we think about God? He finds the question impossible to answer without defining one's own position.The author writes: I have learned that it is good to speak about God with some caution; not, however at the periphery of thought but from within, from the heart of our economic, legal, psychological and philosophical ideals. The book is an account of my own personal theological question. What have I found? That the questions about God open our eyes to God the Eternal One, the Most High, as a question to us.
