The Death of Death in the Death of Christ is a polemical work, designed to show, among other things, that the doctrine of universal redemption is unscriptural and destructive to the gospel. Those who see no need for doctrinal exactness and have no time for theological debates which show up divisions between Evangelicals may well regret its /5(65). This is an excellent book -- but don't get it confused with Nietzsche's writings about 'God is Dead'. What he really battles in his writings (rather than God) is the religiosity of the time (he wrote this in ) and how the people who practiced it really took God out of the equation/5. The book is organised as a narrative: Part I (’Before the death of God’) is a discussion of some of the ways in which philosophers have offered accounts of the meaning of human life in the context of a conception of a ’true world’ distinct from the everyday world. The clearest thing about the small but much-publicized "God is Dead" movement in Protestant theology is its catchy, provocative title. After that, all is subtlety, the specialized technical.

  The death of God didn’t strike Nietzsche as an entirely good thing. Without a God, the basic belief system of Western Europe was in jeopardy. "God is Dead" (German: Gott ist tot (help info); also known as The Death of God) is a widely quoted statement made by the German philosopher Friedrich che used the phrase to express his idea that the Enlightenment had eliminated the possibility of the existence of r, proponents of the strongest form of the Death of God theology have used the phrase in a literal. That is simply because God is in no need of anything. He is the One Who shows His greatness in all things and in all ways. God is the owner of everything, from the heavens to the earth. We learn the attributes of God from the Qur'an: God! There is no god but Him, the Living, the Self-Sustaining. He is not subject to drowsiness or sleep.   The best book I have read on the "philosophy of religion." Benedict provides a balanced approach. The atheist cannot provide proof that God or Divine does not agnostic says, "I cannot know whether God exists or not." Nor can the theist prove that God exists. We must must trust, believe, have faith in a Supreme Being.3/5.

Craig presents 5 good reasons to believe that God exists: 1. God makes sense of the origin of the universe. 2. God makes sense of the fine-tuning of the universe. 3. God makes sense of objective moral values in the world. 4. God makes sense of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. 5. God can be immediately known and experienced.
