The God Revolution: How Ideas About God Have Radically Changed During the Modern Era

Author(s): Keith Hill

Religion

Over the past four hundred years social, scientific and intellectual revolutions have radically altered our understanding of reality. At the same time a diverse range of thinkers have developed equally radical ideas about God. The God Revolution examines the manifold reasons that the Western idea of a personal God came under siege, culminating in Nietzsche's declaration, "God is dead." It explores the ideas of key thinkers who treated Nietzsche's proclamation as a challenge and developed intriguing new ideas about God and reality. It concludes with a summary of the current state of new thinking about God. The God Revolution takes the reader on a stimulating and ultimately inspiring journey, surveying pivotal moments in Western cultural and intellectual history, and revealing revolutionary new insights into the nature and role of God that continue to resonate in our lives today.
