Overview

Does God exist? Who is God? And can we ultimately trust in any reality? These questions have been among the greatest subjects of human speculation since history began, but not until modern times has the reality of God been so strongly called into doubt. In this monumental study, written for men and women of all faiths (and of none), Hans Kung, the most renowned and controversial theologian in the world today, first traces the rise of modern atheism in the works of such great thinkers as Descartes, Pascal, Feuerbach, Marx, Nietzsche and Freud, and then demonstrates—brilliantly and in terms that make sense to us today—why a "yes" to God remains a more reasonable and responsible belief than its alternative, nihilism.

Editorial Reviews

Richard P. McBrien
Perhaps more than any other of his books, ''Does God Exist?'' challenges the preconceptions of uncritical defenders and uncritical opponents alike. It is a work at once conservative in its faith and substantive in its scholarship. . . . ''Does God Exist?'' demonstrates beyond any reasonable doubt that Father Kung is a serious and sophisticated theologian, not simply a popularizer or polemicist. . . . Unsuspecting readers, attracted by the author's reputation for clear thinking and common sense, may stumble over some of the prose. . . . ''Does God Exist?'' is a major work by a major theologian. It deserves a wide and fair reading. -- New York Times
