God is living. God is dead. These are contradictory statements. Yet, it is before this God who is a "sign of contradiction" that the man of the 20th century must stand. Every man today is confronted with the alternative questions posed by the godless modern philosophers and by Revelation:

Is God dead as the prophet of the post-modern age proclaims, or is he still the living God of more ancient prophecy, immortal in his Being as He Who is, deathlessly faithful to his promise to be with us all the days, even to the end of the epoch within which both the modern and the post-modern ages represent only moments in a longer dialectic of history?1
