About this book

In these letters to friends and colleagues spanning around twenty years, renowned radical theologian Thomas J. J. Altizer offers a series of meditative mini-essays on religious, theological, political, and philosophical matters that are central and vital to our contemporary era.

About the authors

Thomas J. J. Altizer was the central figure in the 'death of god' debate of the late 1960s, and has continued to develop his distinctive imaginative theology for over fifty years, above all in response to the advent of modern nihilism. In his prolific writings he consistently argues for a Christian atheism that challenges institutional orthodox Christianity at its core. His most recent works are Living the Death of God: A Theological Memoir, The Call to Radical Theology, and The Apocalyptic Trinity.

Mike Grimshaw is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand.

Reviews

'This collection testifies to the sustained brilliance and continuing relevance of Altizer's theological voice. As a recipient of some of these letters, I can attest to how he has encouraged and instructed many younger theologians with these electronic missives, in addition to his numerous books. Michael Grimshaw performs a great service with his careful editing and insightful introduction.' - Clayton Crockett, Professor and Director of Religious Studies Program, University of Central Arkansas, USA
