In this probing, challenging and personal account of his own faith and feelings about God and religion, Paul Johnson explores the evidence for God's existence; the nature and gender of God; the problem of evil; beauty, art and God; our responsibilities towards animals and the environment; the importance of authority, ceremony and liturgy; the Christian church and other faiths; changing attitudes towards death; the Day of Judgment; the existence of Hell; and the uses of prayer. Johnson asks and answers such questions as Who and what is God? Did God gives us a conscience? How can God help us with the problems of evil and suffering? And he shows why we need not fear death and how we can realize the power of prayer.

Review quote

"Part history and part meditation..."The Quest for God is a personal pilgrimage--idiosyncratic musings on the nature of faith and the practice of religion...By sharing the God that lives in his heart he helps the rest of us to better understand the God that lives in our own.""--Wall Street Journal"
