Sep/2006, 104 Pages, Paperback, 5.5 x 8.5

ISBN-13: 9781596270312



Writing for a wide popular audience, philosopher Diogenes Allen examines the problem of human suffering and helps us to discover "traces of God" in the world, even as we suffer from physical pain and loss, natural disaster, and human evil. Written for beginners in the spiritual life, Traces of God describes how we can prepare ourselves for the inevitable sufferings of life. Allen explores the human pilgrimage through adversity and takes a close look at Simone Weil's studies of affliction.

Diogenes Allen is the former Stuart Professor of Philosophy at Princeton Theological Seminary and an Episcopal priest. He is known as one of the greatest Christian philosophers and apologists of the late twentieth century, whom many have compared to C.S. Lewis. He lives in Princeton, New Jersey.

"Diogenes Allen has done us the service of writing this book, which is at once theologically substantial and genuinely popular."—St. Luke's Journal of Theology

"Good Christian apologetic, written with graceful modesty, aimed at real problems of belief and conduct, and informed by a wide-ranging philosopher's mind."—Theology Today"This little book is a treasure. I commend it partly for its obvious literary merit as a wonderfully effective short treatment of its subject."—Reformed Journal
