The Theological Death of God
This week we delve into one of the most innovative and insightful theological movements of the 20th century. I’ll be introducing you to the death of God theologians, as well as some of their earlier influences. We’ll look at Bonhoeffer’s understanding of the religious God as a Deus ex Machina, Tillich’s concept of the God after God and Altizer’s understanding of the Death of God. We also look at Daly and Mother Teresa as examples of how this type of dialectic theology can express itself.
