"The great question of the contemporary age is not whether God exists, but which God exists? If the reality of God pervades all aspects of human experience, then different types of knowledge can be used to explore this fundamental question. In Who is God? Catholic Perspectives through the Ages, John Markey pursues this question by combining rich theological and historical scholarship with real-world connections. Drawing on divrese sources -- from scripture and church tradtion to petry and film -- this text offers a thoughtful exploration of and engagement with Catholicism's 2,000-year-old understanding of God." -- publisher summary.
