Chapter Summary

This chapter unfolds a systematic effort to traverse both Marxism and theology related questions. It explores four possible approaches to theology, with a unique twist: the author does not follow the usual paths of trawling through recognised theologians for he approaches the whole question by looking awry, drawing out the positions of those who at first seem to be outside theology. Why? he wishes to stay focused on the question of atheism and theology. The first three positions come from the misguided effort by the so-called 'new atheists' to attribute all that is evil in the world to religion from the ongoing 'death of God' or a theological project, and then from a furious disciplinary debate between scholars of religion and of theology. Then the fourth introduces some of the key features of what happens when one begin to rub Marxism and theology up against one another.

Keywords: Atheism; God; Marxism; theological project
