We rated this book:


In the mid-1960s Time magazine splashed on their cover a single phrase God is Dead!. That was the birth of modern radical theology. Jump forward to today, and this collection of essays appears arguing that it might be time to consider once more the death of God.

This book is a collection of essays by a wide range of scholars, examine the historical roots of the Death of God movement. They explore the modern underpinnings of how it got revived in the radicalism of the 1960s and the implications for today’s theological students. A couple of the essays explore whether this was a media created phenomena. The final part consists of essays devoted to radical theology and the idea of that God is dead.

The death of God in the 1960s was ground breaking. This book, while important, is not ground breaking – it merely fills a hole. The essays are written for fellow scholars and advanced theology students. The authors often use highly technical terms and philosophical theories. This is an important book for students, and scholars, of theology.
