No One Sees God

The Dark Night of Atheists and Believers

by Michael Novak (Doubleday)


The philosopher, journalist, diplomat and professor argues that the conflict between faith and doubt stems from divergent attitudes toward the unknown. But it is the spiritual perspective, he writes, that provides the most satisfying answers to the eternal questions of meaning.

While the author defends the Christian worldview, he avoids an antagonistic tone and offers a new way of conversing about spiritual life.

Novak was the Welch Chair of American Studies at Notre Dame in autumn 1987 and ’88.
