The Dean of the Chapel at King's College, Cambridge University queries whether theology can operate in the void of post-theism. He traces the history of nothingness from Augustine through Kierkegaard and Nietzsche to Bataille and Derrida, and dialogues with Japan's Kyoto School of philosophers. He finds even the best account wanting, and suggests that the personal experience of nothingness is the best ground for future religious life and thought. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
