"A most engaging example of contemporary American religious thought. . . . Much can be learned from the historicity of critical theory and its expansive socio-cultural analysis."
(Marc P. Lalonde Journal of Religion and Culture
"If you have never been able to figure out what Mark Taylor is up to, read After God. It brings to a head everything he has been saying over the years in an engaging summa theologiae tayloriensis. Composed in readable English, it is a work of maturity of a major American thinker—clear, sober, interdisciplinary, full of theory, and ending with down-to-earth warnings about what we are doing to the water. Taylor has never made more sense, never made it more sensibly, cognetly, and cautiously. He makes it clear that the 'death of God' . . . is all about life, just the way the seed must die in order to give life."
(John D. Caputo Journal of the American Academy of Religion
