Synopsis:

A debate of perennial interest, addressing one of the oldest questions posed to religious believers—if God made everything, who made God?

 

Most recently leveled by the New Atheists, the question of the likelihood that God is a human invention was first asked in ancient Greece and has preoccupied religious believers for centuries ever since. Here, renowned scholar Robert Banks explores the history of this objection—from its earliest vocalization in the ancient world to its most famous advocates, including Freud, Marx, and others—and offers compelling evidence that takes both sides of the argument into account. Ideal for those with a general interest in New Atheism or for those studying religion, this informative guide will offer readers the chance to sort out once and for all what—if any—elements of their idea of God are man-made.

About the Author: Robert Banks completed his doctorate in theology at Cambridge and recently retired as professor of the ministry of the laity and chair of the ministry division at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. He has also been the recipient of the Book of the Year award from Christianity Today and is the author of Faith in Leadership, Faith Goes to Work, Going to Church in the First Century, Paul's Idea of Community, Reenvisioning Theological Education, and The Church Comes Home.
