  • I was 11 years old when God died. The April 8, 1966 cover of Time magazine declared his death, or at least speculated by asking "Is God Dead?"

    I was too young to pay attention to the question. At 11, I only wanted to beat Paul Pechner in spelling. But it's a question that lots of people have been asking in one form or another throughout history. Maybe not, "Is he dead?" but "Is he relevant to my life?"

    We are, above all, supremely self-absorbed.

    Today, I looked up the 1966 Time cover story, "Toward a Hidden God," and read it. It could've been written in 2008.
