Some scholars are now arguing that their predictions concerning the rise of secularism were wrong and that religious faith is as strong now as it has ever been. This is the case with respect to not only the monotheistic religions, especially Islam and Christianity, but also the Eastern and ethnic religions. What is the cause of this resurgence of interest and faith in God? What caused God to leave in the first place? What kinds of theologies were being done during God's absence and what kinds are being done as a result of God's return? What kinds of God(s) are being sought after? What kind of world is God being invited back to? What are the challenges and opportunities from a theological perspective that are availing themselves in all these comings and goings of God?
