'God is the utterly ineffable symbol through which we attempt to express a reality greater than the fragments of the mundane, a totality greater than the self, and a horizon beyond the intangible.' Modern men and women have seen Nietzsche's proclamation of the death of God as a great liberation. Yet the death of old beliefs can cause us to feel that the world has grown colder. In this important book James Byrne explores how we can think creatively about God again. By engaging with philosophers such as Kierkegaard, Sartre and Nietzsche, as well as contemporaries as varied as the Dalai Lama and the late British journalist John Diamond, Byrne invites us to abandon naive ideas about God and to think of God as something more that the idol of the church, philosophers and theologians.
