Once upon a time I was approached by a grad student who said he had been thinking about God. This worried him, because he had never thought about God before.
He said, "Do you think I'm crazy?"
I answered, "No."
He was relieved.
I asked him what had got him started. It turned out that for months he had been devouring the works of contemporary ethical and political theorists.
He explained, "None of these writers says anything about Him. It seems to me they're building their theories on nothing."
That’s it. That was his entire reason for beginning to think about God.
All these authors had made him think of God not because they spoke of Him, but because they didn’t. God had manifested Himself by the very fact of His apparent absence.
