On Religion by John D. Caputo
Book DescriptionJohn D. Caputo explores the very roots of religious thinking in this thought-provoking book. Compelling questions come up along the way: 'What do I love when I love my God?' and 'What can Star Wars tell us about the contemporary use of religion?' (are we always trying to find a way of saying 'God be with you'?) Why is religion for many a source of moral guidance in a postmodern, nihilistic age? Is it possible to have 'religion without religion'? Drawing on contemporary images of religion, such as Robert Duvall's film The Apostle, Caputo also provides some fascinating and imaginative insights into religious fundamentalism.

Books By Author John D. Caputo
Folly of God, Paperback (November 2015)
Inspired by Paul Tillich's suggestion that atheism is not the end of theology but is instead the beginning, and working this together with Derrida's idea of the undeconstructible, Caputo explores the idea that the real interest of theology is not God, especially not God as supreme being, but the unconditional.
Truth, Paperback (September 2013)
Explores the many notions of 'truth', and what it really means Riding to work in the morning has become commonplace. The author argues that our transportation technologies are not merely transient phenomena but the vehicle for an important metaphor about post modernism, or even constitutive of post modernism.
Insistence of God, Paperback (September 2013)» View all books by John D. Caputo
Presents the provocative idea that God does not exist, God insists, while God's existence is a human responsibility, which may or may not happen
