In the Twilight with God
A Critique of Religion in the Light of Man’s Glassy Essence
Imprint: Cascade Books
"The pages ahead are a treasure for all who want to engage the God question. Here, Farley shows himself a masterful interpreter of main approaches to the issue of God as probed by philosophers and theologians. They have given their best thought to this issue. Now Farley leads us through their teachings, arguments, and musings. He is a splendid teacher in laying out what the great thinkers have thought. To investigate the thought of those who have devoted such sustained thinking to this issue is work worth doing. These chapters unlock the rich resources that can help us--whomever we are--to contemplate answers to the question: 'How then do we think of God?'"
--from the foreword by Donald K. McKim
"This journey ranges far and wide, following some of the great lights of the past such as the Hebrew Bible, Plato, the Bhagavad-Gita, Anselm, and Aquinas. While Tillich becomes his leading light, Farley also finds illumination in the works of Nietzsche, Hawking, and Dawkins. The result is a philosophical-theological poetics of God as the ground of being, the other who is felt, heard, and even hidden in the dark depths of humanity's own being and in the brilliant majesty of the cosmos. This is a deeply satisfying and beautiful book, one that speaks to mind and heart at the same time."
