Who is God? How can we relate to him? How can we visualise a spiritual leader? Borrowing from the classical Philosophy of God, Dr Cyril Desbruslais makes the philosophical reflections on God relevant for our times. The author has taken up critical reflection on our understanding of God and thence takes up the debate on whether God's existence can be proved or not.

Besides the normal questions like proving God's existence, evil, creation-evolution, comparative religions, myths-idols, he attempts to relate the issue of God to human fulfilment. He lays stress on personal encounter with God and challenges us to transform ourselves and the world, by experiencing God as a lived reality in our midst.
