Taking Leave of God, Paperback Book

Taking Leave of God Paperback

Part of the SCM Classics series



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.
