Marquette Prof Argues for a Revolutionary and Atheistic Christianity

Marquette University professor Daniel Maguire argues that Christianity has a positive moral and political message to offer that does not require belief in an omnipotent god, a divine savior, or false promises of an afterlife.

In this book, Daniel Maguire defends both atheism and the neglected positive insights into human reality contained in both Judaism and Christianity.

A century of scholarly research proves that the dogmatic triad of personal god, incarnate savior, and continued living after death are insupportable hypotheses and a distraction from the brilliant insights into human nature housed in the traditions of both Judaism and Christianity.
           
As Katha Pollitt says of the book: “With immense learning and considerable charm, Daniel Maguire evokes a Christianity freed from dogma, literalism, self-righteousness, and terror.  Believers and skeptics alike can delight in what’s left: poetry, morality, a sense of awe and wonder.  In a word, humanity.”
 
Finally, someone has had the courage and standing to recover the lost beauty of an earth-loving Christianity that for many centuries lay beneath dry creeds and ungrounded and poisonous myths of sacralized violence.
