What can Christians learn from the man who declared that "God is dead?" Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) has often been referred to as one of the first existential philosophers and is perhaps best-known for challenging the foundations of Christianity and traditional morality. Lucy Huskinson rescues Neitzsche's religious perspective from the murky misunderstandings that surround his confusing work and makes the philosopher's difficult thought process accessible to a wide audience. She engages Nietzsche's affirmative religious thinking, opens the gates to a world previously - and unjustifiably - locked to believers, and highlights what the world has to offer Christians. Students and curious laypeople will appreciate this introduction to a key figure of modern Western thought.
