Striet, Magnus

Missing God. From religious longing to the modern

Missing God. From religious longing to the modern

It is anything other than embarrassing today to be religious. However, the absence of the question: Where is God amidst at all the suffering in the world?” is noticeable. Yet, in the cultural field, the experience of missing God is omnipresent. Magnus Striet examines this phenomenon. Albert Camus, Philip Roth, Jean Améry, Georg Büchner, Heinrich Heine, Charles Darwin, and others, are his guests.
