At the end of Paul Tillich's life, a small group of young theologians, calling themselves "radical" or "death of God" theologians, carried many of Tillich's own ideas forward, even though Tillich disagreed with their agendas. Tillich was, however, deeply influential on this small group of thinkers. This dissertation explores the connections between Tillich and the two most prominent of these radical theologians, Thomas J. J. Altizer and Mary Daly. A new kind of atheistic Christianity arises from a discussion of these three thinkers. This theology is a religious phenomenology that posits life itself as ontologically prior to thinking and being, with a possibility for a non-logocentric metaphysics. Using atheism as a tool, this atheistic Christianity opens the possibility for a Christian belief to be conjured within the religious imagination of the individual and local religious community, without making ultimate, universal ontological truth-claims. Finally, in this atheistic Christianity a new missional hope for communal Christian experience emerges.
