Death of God… the documentary

What does the “Death of God” mean? Wouldn’t a documentary help explain it?  Well Brad Johnson (@ahablives on twitter) was pressured by Deacon Keating to post the old school documentary on the movement.  You can enjoy hearing Thomas Altizer as a young man explain it.  I have to say that I like Altizer with a stache better!

Check it out and then get your ticket to the Subverting the Norm conference this April where I will facilitate a panel on the Death of God.  If that doesn’t convince you try Tony Jones’ 10 reasons to come…. which is 3 more than my 7.

This really was a helpful short documentary. I will defiantly be checking out more Thomas Altizer. You guys rock. Wish I could get myself to Springfield, Mo in April.

Your 7 reasons are biblical.  Tony's use of 10 is in conformity with the metric system, very worldly.  Tsk, tsk.

I found the part about the "whisky and beer companies" particularly hilarious.

I am not responding to the documentary (yet) but I wanted to have a fan-girl moment: I got to spend a day with Altizer last Spring when he visited Emory. I drove him to a Monastery and he spent all afternoon talking with monks. Imagine that!

@trippfuller yeah. I loved the line about atheists being alcoholics, as if the actually existing church doesn't produce drinkers. Lol
