The quest for something deeper

WHEN God asks a question, we expect to be taken deeper spiritually, as with this query recorded in the book of Job: "Hast thou walked in the search of the depth?" (38:16 ). But this ancient question has new meaning in the age of postmodernism — the reaction to modernism in the arts, philosophy, and other realms of human culture.

In today's culture, depth is not just the opposite of height. Depth has to do with profundity, with intensity and complexity, with reality. When something lacks depth, it's described as two-dimensional, hollow, and shallow, or in a more neutral sense, as flat.
