The Hidden God: Film and Faith, which accompanies a MoMA Film at the Gramercy Theatre program in the winter of 2003-2004, offers a range of approaches to cinema's explorations of a hidden God. Its thirty-five authors include filmmakers, magazine and newspaper critics, film scholars, curators of The Museum of Modern Art's Department of Film and Media, and others; together they discuss over fifty films, some more or less explicitly religious in theme, others from a gamut of genres not always connected with questions of faith: the western, the thriller, the policier, the costume drama, science fiction, horror, comedy. The films come from Africa, the Middle East, and Japan as well as Europe and the United States, but even so, the book and exhibition are intended not as an encyclopedic anthology but, more humbly, as starting points in the study of an eternal theme.

The clarity of style for which Mr. Brooks has long been noted is displayed to advantage in this newest book of his criticism. Originally delivered as lectures at a faculty conference of people interested in theology, the critical studies have special importance for all readers who would like a fresh perspective on five distinguished literary figures whose Christian commitment has been regarded as nonexistent or nebulous. Mr. Brooks believes that whatever a writer has to say about mankind, Christianity, or culture in general is most significantly explained through his achievements as an artist, and for that reason the critic here deals with the characteristic literary work of each author, rather than with his theology or philosophy.

In Western religious traditions, God is conventionally conceived as a humanlike creator, lawgiver, and king, a being both accessible and actively present in history. Yet there is a concurrent and strong tradition of a God who actively hides. The two traditions have led to a tension between a God who is simultaneously accessible to humanity and yet inaccessible, a God who is both immanent and transcendent, present and absent. Western Gnostic, esoteric, and mystical thinking capitalizes on the hidden and hiding God. He becomes the hallmark of the mystics, Gnostics, sages, and artists who attempt to make accessible to humans the God who is secreted away. 'Histories of the Hidden God' explores this tradition from antiquity to today. The essays focus on three essential themes: the concealment of the hidden God; the human quest for the hidden God, and revelations of the hidden God.

The concept of ‘world visions’, first elaborated in the early work of Georg Lukàcs, is used here as a tool whereby the similarities between Pascal’s Pensées and Kant’s critical philosophy are contrasted with the rationalism of Descartes and the empiricism of Hume. For Lucien Goldmann, a leading exponent of the most fruitful method of applying Marxist ideas to literary and philosophical problems, the ‘tragic vision’ marked an important phase in the development of European thought from rationalism and empiricism to the dialectical philosophy of Hegel, Marx and Lukàcs. The book is not a collection of isolated essays on Kant, Pascal, Racine, the status of the legal nobility in seventeenth-century France and the exact nature of the religious movement known as Jansenism, but an attempt to formulate, by an examination of these different topics, a general approach to the problems of philosophy, of literary criticism, and of the relationship between thought and action in human society.

The Hidden God revisits the origins of American pragmatism and finds a nascent "posthumanist" critique shaping early modern thought. By reaching as far back as the Calvinist arguments of the American Puritans and their struggle to know a "hidden God," this book brings American pragmatism closer to contemporary critical theory. Ryan White reads the writings of key American philosophers, including Jonathan Edwards, Ralph Waldo Emerson, William James, and Charles Sanders Peirce, against modern theoretical works by Niklas Luhmann, Richard Rorty, Jacques Derrida, Sharon Cameron, Cary Wolfe, and Gregory Bateson. This juxtaposition isolates the distinctly posthumanist form of pragmatism that began to arise in these early texts, challenging the accepted genealogy of pragmatic discourse and common definitions of posthumanist critique. Its rigorously theoretical perspective has wide implications for humanities research, enriching investigations into literature, history, politics, and art.

"If I had learned anything during the war, it was that our walk in the sun is brief, and so I resolved to wander from monastery to monastery, a sojourner in the world of last things." So poet and journalist Christopher Merrill tells us near the beginning of this gripping account of the transforming pilgrimages he made to Mount Athos, in Greece, in the aftermath of the Balkan wars of the 1990s. "It was time for me to come to terms with the way my life had turned out: the love I had squandered, the misgivings I had about my vocation and my faith, the dread I felt at every turn." In despair and longing to end his spiritual desolation, Merrill became one of a handful of visitors permitted entry to Mount Athos--a mysterious land that for more than a thousand years has been the secret heart of the Eastern Orthodox Church. There, amid the beautiful terrain, the ancient rhythms, and the spiritual rigor of this holy place, he found a haven. As Merrill's story unfolds, we, too, hike the rough trails of Athos, exploring a place and a way of life scarcely altered since medieval times. We share encounters with monks and spiritual seekers; visit Athos's twenty monasteries, where exquisite art treasures are sequestered; make our way to lonely hermitages that clutch the cliffs above the sea. Like Merrill, we come to consider existence in a new and different light. Part journal of personal discovery, part meditation upon the history and traditions of the contemplative life, Things of the Hidden God takes us where the temporal and the eternal intersect, where community and solitude coexist, and where centuries-old practices offer insight for how to live today.

“The ways of God are not our ways, and the spiritual life is almost the contrary of what we fancy it.” So declares author Luis Martinez, the Mexican bishop and mystic whose wise spirituality, rooted in St. John of the Cross and St. Therese of Lisieux, shows you here how to enter into an intense, sustained communion with God. Bishop Martinez doesn’t offer new rules of prayer or demand that you abandon the forms of meditation that suit you. He simply reminds you that our God is a hidden God. To find Him, says Martinez, we have to seek Him, but through His ways, not ours. If we do that, the gaze of faith will always find Him right where He hides: in the spiritual desolation that led us wrongly to believe He was far away. Martinez shows you how to live in the obscurity of faith, detached both from consolations and desolations, and why this is best for your soul. The Christian who learns to do this leaves behind the perturbations of the world that shake the faith of those who don’t In the obscurity of faith, the Divine Master will listen to you, speak to you, and instruct your soul, but without the noise of words. Says Martinez: “Once you know how to profit from faith and to live by faith, you will always find God. You will have solved your problem; you will have discovered the great secret of the interior life.” Let these pages teach you that secret!

In this phenomenological reading of Luther, Marius Timmann Mjaaland shows that theological discourse is never philosophically neutral and always politically loaded. Raising questions concerning the conditions of modern philosophy, religion, and political ideas, Marius Timmann Mjaaland follows a dark thread of thought back to its origin in Martin Luther. Thorough analyses of the genealogy of secularization, the political role of the apocalypse, the topology of the self, and the destruction of metaphysics demonstrate the continuous relevance of this highly subtle thinker.

Where is God? Can we know Him? Why does He seem elusive sometimes? Unearthing the Hidden God examines nine Bible stories in a new light revealing a God who hides Himself in elements of the story. Plot, conflict, setting, characters, purpose, irony, theme, dialogue and bias become tools for unearthing God's character ensconced within familiar Biblical tales. Making sense of adult experiences requires more than a childhood understanding of God and Bible stories. Unearthing the Hidden God grapples with social and personal issues, the role of the Church in society and, most of all, the personality and will of God our Creator. Unearthing the Hidden God can be devotional reading, a personal Bible journal, or curriculum for group Bible Study.

"The Structure of Desire" by W.F. Lantry, is a wonderful book of poetry for all those who have loved someone. But it is infinitely more than just a book of love poems. The author places his reader at a privileged crossroad of his poetic landscape that reveals the sanctum sanctorum of the multi-faceted magic that results from loving another. In this case Miranda, who he describes as: "A miraculous being, whose existence could be neither imagined nor predicted, who insists she's 'just a mortal woman.' A protean changeling, whose transformations, if revealed, would mystify the most jaded skeptic. The center of a whirlwind. A coloratura soprano. Also, by the grace of providence, my wife." Lovers of good poetry will find in Lantry a master craftsman of what can make the genre so powerful: At such times as when this world obeys its own internal physical logic. A world to which readers have traditionally escaped to read verses such as this, where, as in Plato's cave, we are indirectly shown the emotional reality in the author's heart. In this collection, his reader will have models of the pre-eminence of inspiration and talent. Lantry had his formal curriculum well in hand and his technical tools sharpened but nothing could surpass or replace the immediacy of the authenticity of finding his ultimate muse: Miranda. She is the idée fixe that powers his drive to capture her presence: Such as the de-incarnate wind or the fleeting spark of a lover's glance. Moments such as these permeate the best poems of this collection. Great loves and talent have always found echoes and correspondences of each other in other art forms and other artists. This book is an excellent example of this landscape.

D. James Kennedy, PhD, was for decades one of the most trusted and gifted leaders of the Christian faith. And now with The Presence of a Hidden God, the book he completed shortly before his passing, he offers you one more opportunity to know and love the God whom Dr. Kennedy served so courageously. With powerful biblical exposition, clarity of thought, and fascinating examples from history and life, Dr. Kennedy and Jerry Newcombe guide you into a fuller clearer knowledge of almighty God. They reveal that, first and foremost, God is found in Jesus Christ: “No one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him” (Matthew 11:27, esv). But we must not be passive if we want a relationship with God. The Bible tells us that God can be found through faith, repentance, prayer, Bible reading and study, meditation, giving, and sharing our faith. In this book, Dr. Kennedy expounds brilliantly on these truths. Join in this life-changing journey of discovery, and see that God is not hidden after all, but is present with you…now and forever.

Close Encounters with God presents a study of multiple close encounters with Yahweh, the name of God in Hebrew Scripture. These encounters enable us to have a clearer portrayal of the self-revealed God, one who is different from the conceptualized deity envisioned through such means as transcendental meditation, vision quest, or mystical rapture. By rediscovering the true personality of the self-revealed God, we will be able to understand the great mysteries of the universe that have baffled mankind for millennia. Why do the blameless suffer? Why does evil persist in the world? Why do the wicked prosper? Must the chosen people suffer the destiny of martyrdom? And why should Yahweh remain the hidden God?

Longing is a universal human experience, born of the inevitable gulf between dream and reality, what we need and what we have. While the experience of longing may arise from loss or the awareness of a void in one's life, it may also become a powerful engine of spiritual growth, prompting one to draw closer to the hidden yet present "Other." Across the range of Jewish teachings, longing takes center stage in one's spiritual life. From the Bible through current frontiers in Jewish belief and practice, God is both known and unknown, immediate and remote, present and in constant eclipse. This book captures the sense of longing in Jewish tradition by creating a dialogue between the author's own struggles with an estranged father and a wide range of traditional and contemporary sources. Focusing on the story of the Hebrew prophet Elisha, the book takes the reader through a journey of abandonment, creative destruction, and ultimately repair and healing, engaging with currents in biblical theology, rabbinic thought, Kabbalah, and contemporary Jewish philosophy. Written in a familiar yet probing style, this book is an accessible introduction to Jewish thought and spirituality as well as a thoughtful companion for more experienced students.

The story of the binding of Isaac both challenges and inspires people who seek to live faithfully in relationship with a God who surpasses our understanding. Combinding the history of exegesis with a theological exploration of the meaning of faith in the face of suffering, this book examines Luther‘s and Kierkegaard‘s lively--and very different--interpretations of Genesis 22 to demonstrate how the way we read the Bible is crucial to the life of faith.

The theme of Esther is the providence of the invisible God to save His people. Here we see the concept of a conspicuous absence-the absence of something that all the details lead us to expect. God is never directly mentioned in the book of Esther. God is not a character in this book in a way that we see Him in a book like Exodus. God is not seen doing miracles or speaking in a direct way but is seen in the details of the story through His providence. God is demonstrated to be in control even when He is seemingly missing.When God seems most hidden, He is most present!Psalm 46:1-"God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.""...very present..." (Psalm 46:1)God is overwhelmingly present with His people in time of trouble

In The Wager of Lucien Goldmann, Mitchell Cohen provides the first full-length study of this major figure of postwar French intellectual life and champion of socialist humanism. While many Parisian leftists staunchly upheld Marxism's "scientificity" in the 1950s and 1960s, Lucien Goldmann insisted that Marxism was by then in severe crisis and had to reinvent itself radically if it were to survive. He rejected the traditional Marxist view of the proletariat and contested the structuralist and antihumanist theorizing that infected French left-wing circles in the tumultuous 1960s. Highly regarded by thinkers as diverse as Jean Piaget and Alasdair MacIntyre, Goldmann is shown here as a socialist who, unlike many others of his time, refused to portray his aspirations for humanity’s future as an inexorable unfolding of history’s laws. He saw these aspirations instead as a wager akin to Pascal’s in the existence of God. “Risk,” Goldmann wrote in his classic study of Pascal and Racine, The Hidden God, “possibility of failure, hope of success, and the synthesis of the three in a faith which is a wager are the essential constituent elements of the human condition.” In The Wager of Lucien Goldmann, Cohen retrieves Goldmann’s achievement—his “genetic structuralist” method, his sociology of literature, his libertarian socialist politics. Originally published in 1994. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
