Today as always man is faced with the task of finding meaning in life. In hopes of satisfying the demand for meaning, some men have turned to the world with its natural beauty, its unsolved riddles. The cry of the times, however, appears to be that of despair. As a recent Time magazine article said:

Undeniably, one of the most telling events of modern history has been a revolution in the relationship of religion to Western civilization. The churchgoer could once take comfort in the fact that he belonged to what was essentially a Christian society, in which the existence of an omnipotent God was the focus of ultimate meaning. No such security exists today, in a secular-minded culture that suggests the eclipse rather than the presence of God.
