Actual human speech about God, thus, is not abstract logical talk about an ‘ultimate limit’ but rather talk about life and the world, about our deepest problems, about catastrophe and triumph, about human misery and human glory. It is about what is really important in life, how we are to live, how to comport ourselves, which styles of life are genuinely human and which dehumanizing. But it is and can be talk about these matters only because it claims to be about that ultimate point of orientation to which all else must be referred.
