Yet the death of old beliefs can cause us to feel that the world has grown colder.In this important new 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 journalist John Diamond, Byrne invites us to abandon naive ideas about God, and to think of God as something more than the idol of the church, philosophers, and theologians. In particular, he argues that taking God seriously means taking our own talk about God less seriously and in good humor.
