Description

The leading exponent of the "death of God" theology of the 1960s, Thomas J. J. Altizer created a media sensation at the time and defined a major new direction in philosophical theology. Altizer has continued to refine his thought throughout his career, and his systematic theological work has achieved its prime as shown in this collaborative critical response to his thought. This book is also the first collection of its kind to appear in nearly thirty years and, thus, the first to deal with the most sophisticated period of his work. A response from Altizer is included, along with a comprehensive bibliography of his work.

Review quote

"This book is a successful treatment of the work of one of the most serious, singleminded, and challenging theologians at work today. Altizer's theology, forty years in refinement, is radical and profound, and to read him is to be forced to think through serious theological issues. The contributions are diverse and of uniformly high quality."
