9780791466407: Gods after God: An Introduction to Contemporary Radical Theologies

An erudite but eminently readable guide to contemporary radical theologies.

Gods after God provides an accessible introduction to a wide range of contemporary radical theologies. Radical theology can be defined as talk about the divine that rejects the notion of God as a supernatural personal consciousness who created the world and who intervenes in it to accomplish his purposes. In addition, radical theologies tend to reject the absolute authority of traditional sources of guidance such as the Bible and the tradition of a church. Richard Grigg demonstrates that there is a discernible stream of radical theologies beginning in the seventeenth century and continuing to the present. He explores a host of rich and lively contemporary radical religious positions, including the radical feminist theology of Mary Daly, the deconstructive theology of Mark C. Taylor, the religious naturalism of Ursula Goodenough and Donald Crosby, the pragmatist approaches of Sallie McFague and Gordon Kaufman, the Taoist interpretation of Jesus of Stephen Mitchell, and the feminist polytheism of Naomi Goldenberg. This in-depth examination asks, in unflinching terms, what challenges radical theologies face and whether they have a realistic chance of surviving in American society.

"Gods after God on one level is a factual introduction geared for students. However, it is also an opinionated overview with decisive selection criteria ... recommended for scholars of religion interested in theological method, who will likely discover new comparative connections among the wide range of authors." — Sophia

“This book represents an exceptionally important claim, namely that there is a lengthy tradition of nonsupernaturalist religious thought or theology that has much to offer and very likely that has staying power.” Delwin Brown, author of Boundaries of Our Habitations: Tradition and Theological Construction
