from Modern Believing Vol 59:3 - July 2018

Abstract:

One way to ‘get God’ is by reflecting, and this paper gives a personal account of how my reflections on God have changed over the course of my career as an academic theologian turned sociologist. I show how my academic study and my reflections on God have informed one another, and how my reflections have led me to think of God, successively, in terms of love, energy, the unknowable, and infinity.
