Love. Is it the flutter in your stomach, the rush of heat on your cheeks, the worn hands of a sacrificial parent, or the greatest act of redemption in all of human history? All of these represent this common word in some dimension. Still, at least once in our lives, we wonder ‘What is love?’ We admit there is something missing, a deep void in our hearts, empty and unfulfilled. But there must be – there has to be – an answer tucked away someplace, somewhere.
Gripped by this burning question, we go out into the world in search of the answer. Some look for it in the pursuit of one’s passion at a university or in the zeal of one’s purpose at the work place. Others say it’s found in the arms of a childhood friend turned lover or in the fateful encounter with “the one”.

To an Unknown God is UC Berkeley’s first student-run Christian journal. Our mission is to create a space where Christians can share their thoughts on a variety of issues with the Berkeley community. Whether academic, fictional, testimonial, controversial, or encouraging, TAUG provides a forum where social, economic, political, intellectual, and spiritual issues can be discussed. Every semester we publish writing and artwork produced by students and others, hoping to foster dialogue between both Christians and students of other faiths and philosophies. We are not affiliated with any church or other religious group, and opinions expressed in articles and posts do not necessarily represent those of the editors.
The name of the journal is derived from Acts 17, when Paul is in Athens and notices an altar with an inscription, “To the unknown god.” In this city full of idols, Paul boldly speaks, “Therefore, the One whom you worship without knowing, him I proclaim to you.”1 He goes on to speak of “the God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth.”2
