Item description for The Absence of God the Absence of God: Exploring the Christian Tradition in a Situation of Mourningexploring the Christian Tradition in a Situation of by Piet Zuidgeest...
This volume deals with the meaning of the Christian tradition to individuals, particularly in a situation of mourning. The author formulates the relation of the tradition with the individual as a communicative (interpersonal and intrapersonal) conception of tradition. The meaning of the tradition is described in terms of a hermeneutic-narrative interpretation of classical texts. A practicum is presented as a form of guidance in mourning. The empirical exploration shows that the theme of the absence of God (presented in texts of the Psalms) has an important meaning. These texts give believers in grief the opportunity to cope with their loss.
