Publisher's Description

There are essentially three views of life available to modern man. One might believe that God exists and provides a firm foundation for also believing that life has meaning, morality has warrant, human rights are not arbitrary, and that justice will ultimately prevail. Or one might believe that God does not exist but meaning, morality and the rest are possible nonetheless, or, thirdly, one might believe that God has "died" and that any hope for meaning, right and wrong, good and evil, human rights, etc. has died with him. In the Absence of God is the story of how, on a college campus in New England for three weeks in the beginning of one fall semester, the implications of these three views work themselves out. What kind of world do we create when we try to leave God out of it? Dick Cleary explores the fallout in this alternately haunting and hopeful tale of a university campus in turmoil. Packed with heroes, villains and plenty of seekers in between, this is a smart, generous novel you will not easily forget. Stephen Martin Author, The Messy Quest for Meaning Richard Cleary is a retired high school teacher of science and philosophy and currently teaches philosophy at several Pennsylvania colleges.
