(p.215) Conclusion
Hating God

Bernard Schweizer

Oxford University Press

The conclusion shows once again how crucial an awareness about the history and the meaning of misotheism is because in the absence of such knowledge, misotheistically inclined people grope in the dark, trying to handle their hostility to God without proper conceptual or historical footholds. The author places his own project in relationship to protest theology, arguing that this strand of unorthodox theology fails to provide clarity about man’s hostile relationship to the divine. The author further documents the spread of the term misotheism in the last few years, and he comments on the role of the internet in this proliferation. The conclusion ends by looking back over the territory covered in this book and by briefly recapitulating the way in which the six case studies have clarified the depth and breadth of misotheism.
