Chapter Summary

In this introductory chapter, the author gives an overview of the present book. In the pages of this book, the author sketches out how he intends to achieve my goal. First, he turns to the way Augustine's concept of time has proven applicable to modernist literature. Next he deals with the nature of the obstacles blocking a better view of that universe in order to begin drawing ever more carefully the contours of what that universe may look like. Throughout this book the author counters efforts to deprive the threefold manifestation of time (future, present, past) of its present. The conclusion of this discussion is quite paradoxical: Calvin's voice, or, rather, the voice of his elect, may be loud and clear, but since it is tucked away in God's eternity, that voice is at the same time utterly mute.

Keywords:Augustine; Calvin; modernist literature
