Does God exist? Who is God? And can we ultimately trust in any reality? These questions have been among the greatest subjects of human. The Jesuit institution of higher learning from which I graduated required a certain number of theology courses. So a good father laid this bulky tome onto us, and.

He visited the nearby Beth El synagogue and spoke there on modern German-Jewish relations. On 26 September , he had a friendly discussion about Catholic theology over dinner with Pope Benedict XVI , surprising some observers.
The interview drew a rebuke from Cardinal Angelo Sodano. However, and that is a bit of a strawman and false dichotomy, it is positioned against nihilism.
That seems a bit too fast, as other approaches to reality and the self and ethical behavior like humanism could also profit from this fundamental trust, without going further into the existence of God.

Maybe, in another time, this would have fully convinced me, but now it left me hanging a bit.

In any case, this book, because of the sheer breadth of the argumentation and honest intellectual discussion, is worth the read.

The result is a book of major importance for any student of the church in the 20th century. This second volume covers the period following the close of the Second Vatican Council right up to the present day.

This fundamental trust is both a gift and a task. Given all that he's undergone though it's not mean-spirited.
Rather than "Does God Exist? However his world influence has been great.
