The Highest Value I Can Imagine

The Highest Value I Can Imagine

Being an atheist doesn’t rule out a search for God. My writing, both fiction and non-fiction, is driven by the idea of God. Even though I’ve long abandoned the God(s) of Western Civilization—in my heart my search goes on. Sometimes it’s explicit but mostly implied.

In my Leaving Home Trilogy the Catholic Church is a central character. But that’s about religion. Religions rise up out of someone’s notion of the supernatural and that’s where God comes in. At least in history. But for me God means the largest, grandest, the most extensive perfection imaginable. So every time I write I reach for the best I can realize so I am always in the hunt.

One thought on “The Highest Value I Can Imagine”

  1. Good Day James. Thanks for this poignant thought. I am a devout Christian, but not a fan of religion. It is about the relationship and the constant pursuit of being one with the one who pursues me daily. He is perfect and I am not, but his love for me makes me strive to be as perfect as I can be on this side of eternity.
