Spirituality: God's Silence, or the death of God?

Since the 19th century, European literature has been haunted by the overwhelming silence of a world in which no dialogue partner exists, capable of knowing us at the depths where we long to be known. In on Divine Companion is discovered, we beg or bully our dearest companions to perform that miracle for us, and we lacerate them, and ourselves, when they fall short. The rediscovery of God may in fact render us less liabl to distort relationships with those we love, and prevent us demanding from others more than they can give.
