Item Description...
Just as the bible ceased, in the nineteenth century, to be convincing as the repository of divinely revealed knowledge, so the twentieth century witnessed the death of the conventional image of God. Lloyd Geering asks whether this "death of God" spells the imminent death of the whole Christian tradition or simply means the end of conventional Christian doctrine.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Disappointing. "Christianity without God" is just secular humanism. So why call it "Christianity without God" at all?  Aug 24, 2006
When I first saw this title on this site, I was ecstatic, and I was equally excited when I received it as a gift from J. As someone who (usually) agrees with John Spong that Christianity must (re)discover a non-theistic a/theology (e.g., an apophatic theology, perhaps) in order to survive, I thrilled at the possible non-theistic Christianities that I assumed Geering would describe. Alas, I was let down.

Instead of describing a spiritually vibrant post-theistic Christianity akin to the other non-theistic wisdom traditions like Buddhism and Vedanta, this book simply reduces non-theistic Christianity to secular humanism and the corollary idea of a divinized humanity (i.e., ethical nontheism). To say that this conclusion disappointed me is is not to say that I find secular humanism bad or lacking; on the contrary, the contributions of humanism to the last few centuries have been unparalled. Rather, Geering's thesis simply raises questions like, why is the author still talking about Christianity at all, since we already have the phrase "secular humanism"? Or, why muddy the water and call secular humanism "Christianity without God"? I never found answers to those questions in this book and that is what I found disappointing.
A vital, honest, and essential Christian view  Jul 25, 2006
Geering's challenging title should not dissuade Christians from picking up this book. Geering is a clear headed writer and a wonderful Bible scholar who brings it all together in this little book for an exciting vision of spiritual (Christian) maturity. The old notion of the external authoritative God in the clouds interacting on an arbitrary basis with the world needs to set free of it's cage. Geering's vision of secularity challenges us to take more responsibility for our earth and our lives and sets forth a divinized future for all life. This is the best religious book I have read in quite some time! (and I have a library full of them).
Searcher for Truth in Tacoma  Jan 2, 2003
This morning in front of a warm fire on the first day of 2003 while rain pelted down outside, I read this book from cover to cover. Professor Geering has given us a page-turner as he step-by-step builds his case for why Christianity must take leave of God in order to be suitable for the global age we are entering. With just enough explanation for the average lay person he describes the progression from the belief in a personal, all-powerful God to the need for humans to take leave of that God so they can take full responsibility for their lives. In showing how Christianity has been changing through the ages to arrive at this point, Geering references many theologians. One I would especially like to read more about is Ludwig Feuerbach who is quoted as saying, "The real essence of Christianity.. is not that Jesus became God but that God became human."
