Kearney starts off by means of finding a flip towards sacred secularity in modern philosophy, concentrating on Maurice Merleau-Ponty and Paul Ricoeur. He then marks "epiphanies" within the modernist masterpieces of James Joyce, Marcel Proust, and Virginia Woolf. Kearney concludes with a dialogue of the position of theism and atheism in clash and peace, confronting the excellence among sacramental and sacrificial trust or the God who offers existence and the God who takes it away. Accepting that we will by no means ensure approximately God, he argues, is the one method to rediscover a hidden holiness in lifestyles and to reclaim a regular divinity.
