Reimagining God Online Book Club

Reimagining God, by Lloyd Geering

You are cordially invited to join readers worldwide for a book club, hosted by, on Reimagining God: The Faith Journey of a Modern Heretic by Lloyd Geering. The Patheos website encourages interfaith dialogue by hosting blogs from a variety of faith perspectives. To participate, pick up a copy of the book, visit the Patheos Bookclub between November 1 and 15, 2014, and click on the cover image for Reimagining God. You can also sign up for book club updates on the Reimagining God book page.

The book club will feature special resources, including discussion questions, an excerpt from the documentary The Last Western Heretic, and more. Through vignettes of key thinkers, including Schleiermacher, Feuerbach, Jung, Teilhard de Chardin, and Robinson, Geering offers readers an opportunity to explore the regions where an individual’s intellectual and/or spiritual journey touches on human concepts of God. This is a particularly good book for groups interested in “finding their place” in and among various perspectives on the nature of God—even, or perhaps especially, for readers who are not sure they want the term God to have a future.

We look forward to seeing you there.

The Last Western Heretic (DVD)
Now available

The Last Western Heretic (DVD)

Filmed in New Zealand and Israel and premiered at the NZ Parliament, The Last Western Heretic explores Lloyd Geering’s worldview through a discussion of his ideas—there is no life after death, the Bible is not infallible, Jesus was not divine, among others. Includes live footage from his 1967 heresy trial on charges of “doctrinal error and disturbing the peace of the [Presbyterian] church” which resulted from Geering’s assertion that the resurrection of Jesus should not be interpreted literally.
