More than 70 years ago the scientist and Jesuit priest Teilhard de Chardin wondered why Christianity was ceasing to appeal to an increasing number of people. Christianity, he wrote, still to some degree provides a shelter for the modern soul, but no longer clothes it, nor leads it. And so something in the area of faith and religion must be supplied without delay. Through the testimonies of Christians from the past and present and through presenting neglected ideas within that tradition we will explore possible answers to the privotal question: what is it Christians are looking for?
