The Critique of God as Being
To begin this journey, we start with some of the critiques that have been leveled against the religious understanding of God. The religious understanding of God is a substantive understanding of the divine as the highest being, that stands over the universe. As we take this journey together, we will see how there are different views of God in the theological tradition. This first understanding of God, which is the one we are most familiar with, has been critiqued throughout history, and is the main target of New Atheism.
