Product description
This was the book which first garnered international celebrity and notoriety for its author and which fire-started a debate about the supernatural claims of Christianity. Rejecting Christian doctrines and metaphysics in favour of the religious consciousness which characterises human identity, Cupitt 'takes leave' of God by abandoning objective theism. Because he remained an ordained priest of the Church of England, the author attracted considerable attention and criticism for his position. Indeed, Keith Ward, now Oxford's Regius Professor of Divinity, wrote an entire book - Holding Fast to God - which attempted to counter Cupitt's views. Whatever one thinks of the author's beliefs, Taking Leave of God contributed to one of the most important theological discussions of its time.

Product Reviews

"'Composed with a moving integrity and honesty, with a stress on disinterested spirituality and discipline.' John Robinson in the Times Literary Supplement 'There shines through this lucid book a passion, an integrity, an often agonising seriousness of concern, which is in refreshing contrast to the dilettantism, the sceptical frivolity, which disfigures some other popular writing on religious matters.' The Tablet"
