Summary
Belief in God has been a conerstone of Christian faith. The idea of a supernatural spiritual being who created and sustains the universe was thought fundamental to Christianity, as it was to the other two great monotheistic religions. But just as the Bible ceased, in the nineteenth century, to be convincing as the source of divinely revealed knowledge, so the twentieth century has witnessed the failure of the conventional idea of God. Does this 'Death of God' spell the end of the whole Christian tradition? Or does it simply mean the end of conventional Christian doctrine? Christianity Without God affirms the latter, treating Christian culture as a living and evolving stream. Lloyd Geering sees the modern secular form of Christian culture as the logical consequence of the basic doctrines of the Trinity and the Incarnation. He links modern humanism with the neglected Wisdom stream of the Old Testament. Christianity Without God looks forward to a world with faith, not a world lacking God. For, as Lloyd Geering cogently argues, it is the cultivation of the wisdom of Christianity that the world now needs, not a supernatural saviour
