The Vanishing Act of God

The Divine Magician, represents the culmination of a project I’ve been developing and deepening since How (Not) to Speak of God. It offers a radical vision of faith that critiques religion, subverts the distinctions between belief and non-belief, and presents Christianity as an incendiary counter-cultural commitment foreclosed by todays dominant sacred and secular institutions.

In this five part course I’ll carefully work through the book, exploring the rich constellation of theories and thinkers that inform it and discussing its practical application.
