In Who or What is God? John Hick reflects on questions of the nature and the accessibility of God in the context of Christianity and other faith traditions.  The essays in this book cover a wide range of issues centered on the search for truth, justice, and peace.  This search concerns the ultimate reality to which the world's great religions point, involving discussion of religious experience, religious language, the relations between religions, death, and Christian belief.

The book does not focus on theology of religions or religious pluralism - for which Hick is so well known - but on different, nevertheless related areas as the nature and accessibility of God, God's relevance for the meaning of life and eschatology, the reconstruction of Christian theology under contemporary conditions, and finally the need to combine spirituality with the search for social justice.

Review:

"Who or What is God? is a choice selection of John Hick's substantial essays. Professor Hick is forthright as ever in advocacy while at the same time always engagingly modest: `My own version is of course not the only version, and there is endless scope for constructive discussion among liberal thinkers.' Not recommended for readers who are nervous of sanity in theology and church." --George Newlands, Professor of Divinity, University of Glasgow

"John Hick is undoubtedly the greatest living philosopher of global religion. This collection of essays gives a very clear and readable account of his mature views, and will be eagerly read by his many admirers." --Keith Ward, Regius Professor of Divinity, University of Oxford
