The God Problem: Options for Making Sense of Christianity
A lecture by Nigel Leaves
Originally presented at Westar Institute’s Spring 2005 Meeting.
Is the term God a noun or a verb? To what does it refer? Nigel Leaves addresses these and other God-questions. He looks down the road ahead, by exploring theological options that have helped others make sense of Christianity. These options include: 1) God is dead: Nietzsche; 2) God is a verb: Wittgenstein, Cupitt, and Geering; 3) the reformation of Christianity: Tillich, Spong, and Hick; and 4) the shift from organized religion to grassroots spirituality.
