And Man Created God : Is God a human invention?
This book addresses one of the oldest questions posed to religious believers: if God made everything, who made God? Most recently levelled by the New Atheists, the question was asked in ancient Greece and has preoccupied religious believers in the centuries since. Here, renowned scholar Robert Banks explores the history of the objection - from its earliest vocalization in the ancient world to its most famous opponents, Freud, Marx, and others. Ideal for anyone with a general interest in new atheism, for those studying religion, or wanting to sort out what (if any) elements of their idea of God are man-made.

"The recovery of theology of, for, and by the ordinary Christian will take more than one good book. But this volume makes a significant contribution. Robert Banks views biblical theology as essentially subversive. It insists on addressing the center of our lives rather than the circumference. . . . This book is about the heart of it--the God invasion of our seven-day week with transcendent meaning and joy. Read it." --R. Paul Stevens, professor, Regent College, on Redeeming the Routines "[Robert] Banks's analysis of the early house churches in their historical context has no parallel, either in content or reader accessibility." --S. Scott Bartchy, professor, University of California, on Paul's Idea of Community
