From Westar Institute’s Fall 2002 Meeting.
Belief in God—understood as a supernatural spiritual being who created the universe and continues to sustain it—has long been assumed to be the irreplaceable foundation of the three monotheistic religions. But just as the bible ceased, in the nineteenth century, to be convincing as the repository of divinely revealed knowledge, so the twentieth century witnessed the death of the conventional image of God. Does this "death of God" spell the death of the whole Christian tradition or does it simply mean the end of conventional Christian doctrine?
