Godhead and the nothing by Thomas J. J Altizer( )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation An eminent theologian argues that nothingness is necessary in order to fully actualize the Godhead. Eminent theologian Thomas J.J. Altizer breaks new ground by exploring the ultimate transfiguration of the Godhead as a question of the Nihil or nothingness and God. The Nihil is essential to the full actualization of the Godhead in that it fully occurs in both a primordial and an apocalyptic sacrifice of the Godhead. Virtually unexplored by philosophical and theological thinking, the Nihil is luminously enacted in the deepest expressions of the imagination, and most clearly and decisively so in the Christian epic tradition. Altizer looks at the works of philosophers and theologians such as Spinoza, Barth, Hegel, Nietzsche, and epic writers such as Dante, Milton, and Blake to ultimately posit a God that is necessarily a dichotomous God

The genesis of God : a theological genealogy by Thomas J. J Altizer( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Altizer, one of America's premier theologians, searches for a proper understanding of the Christian God, which he believes can only be explicated when the question of origin is raised. He begins with an investigation of Hegelian thinking, develops his insights in dialogue with such thinkers as Augustine and Nietzsche, and then focuses on notions generated by the Christian epic poetry of Dante, Milton, and Blake. By developing the absolute origin of God that only Christianity knows, Altizer discloses the origin of a uniquely Christian freedom while also touching upon such important themes as predestination, the fall, evil, and eternity. This new book is a major contribution to his comprehensive apocalyptic theology."--Jacket
