This book aims to capture and describe various aspects of the search for transcendence both now and through history. The reality that seeking and finding God’s face no longer constitutes the natural horizon of our lives is reflected in the book’s division into two parts: part one shows how men and women have sought and found God’s face through the sacred texts of the Old and New Testaments, through sacred images and through philosophical and theological enquiry; part two explores this enquiry in the works of modern philosophers and theologians such as Karl Marx, Friedrich Nietzsche, Auguste Comte, Jan Patočka and Jorge Mario Bergoglio (now Pope Francis), and places what was once a natural way of life under the critical lens of contemporary thought.
