This July, Verso will publish the long unavailable Atheism in Christianity by Ernst Bloch, one of the most important German Marxist thinkers of the twentieth century and one of the great theorists of utopia. Through lyrical yet close analysis of the Bible Bloch examines Christianity’s social roots and appeal for the oppressed, and will undoubtedly add a thoughtful and nuanced perspective to the God debates of the moment.
This new edition comes with an accessible and authoritative introduction by Peter Thompson, Director of the Centre of Ernst Bloch Studies at the University of Sheffield.
To win a copy of this new book, answer correctly: ‘Which contemporary theologian is most influenced by Bloch’s work?’
