Death of God movement


Death of God movement

▪ Christian theology
      radical Christian theological school, mainly Protestant (Protestant Heritage), that arose in the United States during the 1960s, evoking prolonged attention, response, and controversy. Though thinkers of many varied viewpoints have been grouped in this school, basic to practically all of them is the idea that belief in God is impossible or meaningless in the modern world and that fulfillment is to be found in secular life.
