In this, one of the most influential works of the post-Hegelian era, Feuerbach captures the synthesis that emerges from the dialectical process of a transcending Godhead and the rational and material world.
In understanding the true nature of what it means to be fully human, Feuerbach contends that we come face to face with the essenceof Christian theology: human beings investing ordinary concepts with divine meaning and significance. The true danger to humanity occurs when theology is given the force of dogma and doctrine. Losing sight of its anthropological underpinnings and dependence upon or emergence from human nature, it then acquires an existence separate from that of humankind.
Feuerbach leaves nothing untouched: miracles, the Trinity, Creation, prayer, resurrection, immortality, faith and much more.

Ludwig Feuerbach is one of those great philosophers that makes you wish you were his contempory so that you could have those defining conversations that go on into wee hours of the morning. In this work the essence of our relationship with life, what we define as God, and our understanding of ourselves is examined and enhanced. It is a profound exploration that charts new horizons in our understanding of God, human life in the world, and the very human basis for our religious beliefs.
