The question of whether God exists is not so much a philosophical one as it is a psychological one. Our deeper question is why, if God exists, does He not answer my prayer? Why does He forget his creation? Why does He let me suffer seemingly without mercy?

What philosophical argument can be put forward that will ease the pain of our lives? Can a series of premises answer the why of a dying child?

For many who have descended into seemingly unanswerable pain, no argument will do. They must see God. They must touch Him. They must finally lay their heads upon His breast and hear Him breathing. His heart beating. They must hear Him call their names.
