This book shows that the connections between philosophy and religion, especially Christianity, are illegitimate ones. The history of religious thinking has been created by philosophical reasoning. Breaking the grip of this thinking on religious life has an impact on thinking about God as well. To meet this challenge, the author reviews philosophy's history and its consequences for religious thinking. Then he turns to what authentic religious life involves. Nietmann asserts that philosophical dedication to objective truth forms a barricade to authentic religious life. In Part I, the author sketches a philosophical history in whose terms religious thinking developed. Part II recognizes the contemporary rejection, especially by continental philosophy, of traditional philosophical conceptualizations of reality and how it is known. Contents: Preface; Introduction; PART I: PHILOSOPHICAL OBJECTIVITY AND ITS RELIGIOUS IMPACT; God and Reality; Religious Experience; The Humanization of Religion; Timely Religion; PART II: THE EXISTING INDIVIDUAL AND RELIGION; The Logic of Being a Subject; Religious Language; Conclusion-The Dwelling That Words Among Us; Index.
