The crisis of faith is not a modern-day phenomenon.  During the American 
Civil War era, circa 1860, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow composed the poem 
that is the basis for the Christmas hymn, "I Heard the Bells on 
Christmas Day".

One of finest lines in his poetry --

"...for hate is strong and mocks the song of peace on earth, good will 
to men.  Then pealed the bells more loud and deep, God is not dead, nor 
doth he sleep".

Reportedly Longfellow wrote these words of affirmation in response to a 
challenge to his own personal faith and witness of the living God.
