Hubertus Halbfas

Can an Atheist Be a Christian?

A Fundamental and Necessary Consideration

The traditional Church doctrinal system increasingly arouses contradictions and rejection among modern people. The criticism comes from both the outside and the inside. It is bundled into an atheism that proclaims on the one hand: “God is dead”; on the other hand, it says: “A God that exists cannot exist.” Is it possible that both the religion critic Friedrich Nietzsche and the theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer are right?

Hubertus Halbfas establishes a way to connect these opposites as he distinguishes the faith from mythical ideas. His life, thinking and faith follow a return to the Jesuanic legacy and lays out a commitment that can unite Christians and non-Christians.

  • Renowned controversial theologian
