Towards the Dialectic ‘Yes’ | Death of God Theology
If the previous week was all about critics from outside the walls of the church, seeking the death of God, then this week is about a theological movement that is dedicated to the same task.
We’ll be looking at some of the most innovative theologians of the 20th century. Theologians who view this death of God as a profoundly Christian vocation. These thinkers see their vocation as one in which they must actively will and participate in the assassination of God. Taking their place among the vanguard of those dedicated to recreating the world in the aftermath of this cosmic, historical and existential event.
From the point of view of the Death of God theologians, the church exists precisely to help people to enter into this decimation of God. It is to be the profane site where people are slowly disinvested of the religious notion of God so that they can fully embrace the world.
