Book cover

In "What and Where is God? A Human Answer to the Deep Religious Cry of the Modern Soul," Richard la Rue Swain embarks on a journey to address one of humanity's most profound and timeless questions. With thoughtfulness and a deep understanding of the human condition, Swain delves into the elusive concept of God, dissecting its various interpretations and offering his own perspectives.

Swain's approach throughout the book is refreshingly open-minded and inclusive. Rather than advocating for any particular religious tradition or belief system, he encourages readers to explore their own experiences and intuitions. By doing so, he invites individuals from all walks of life, regardless of their religious affiliation or lack thereof, to join the conversation.

What sets this book apart is Swain's ability to effortlessly blend intellectual rigor with emotional introspection. He skillfully weaves together personal anecdotes, philosophical musings, and insights from various religious traditions. This creates a rich tapestry that appeals to both the intellectual and spiritual sensibilities of readers, offering them an opportunity to engage in a profound quest for meaning and purpose.

Moreover, Swain's prose is both engaging and accessible. Complex philosophical concepts are presented in a clear and concise manner, enabling readers to navigate the intricate terrain of religious contemplation without feeling overwhelmed. The author brings clarity to a subject that is often shrouded in abstraction, making it more approachable for those exploring the depths of their own spirituality.

While "What and Where is God?" undoubtedly presents a compelling argument, it is not without its limitations. At times, the author's personal biases shine through, which may alienate readers who hold differing beliefs. However, these instances are rare and do not detract significantly from the overall message of the book.

In essence, Richard la Rue Swain's "What and Where is God?" serves as a valuable starting point for those embarking on a profound and personal exploration of spirituality. It is a book that dares to ask the unanswerable and embraces the diversity of human experiences, inspiring readers to seek their own truths. With its engaging prose and inclusive approach, this book offers solace and guidance to the modern soul in search of transcendence and meaning.

PREFACE

The foreground of this book has largely to do with the answering of vital questions that have sprung from the suffering souls of men and women with whom the author has been sympathetically associated.

While the method of answering a particular set of questions does not permit of a strictly logical treatment of the themes, yet in the background there is a definite and concrete picture of God, of the universe, and of man as he is enfolded in God's world...
