Review:

This is an incisive study of Becker's idea that humans reach for immortality by the denial of death. Here we see how psychology, sociology and theology converge in Becker's work and the problems related to theological correlation. Crisp and fresh, accessible even to undergraduates, yet deeply probing. (John J. Heaney, Fordham University Religious Studies Review)

...an insightful analysis of Becker's interdisciplinary contributions to fundamental theology. (Religious Studies Review)
