    Taking leave of God.Don Cupitt - 1980 - New York: Crossroad.
    This was the book which first garnered international celebrity and notoriety for its author, and which fire-started a debate about the supernatural claims of Christianity. Rejecting Christian doctrines and metaphysics in favour of the religious consciousness which characterises human identity, Cupitt 'takes leave' of God by abandoning objective theism. Whatever one thinks of the author's views, and of the non-realist beliefs he has been seen to champion, Taking Leave of God remains an essential work, and one of the most controversial (...)

    After all: religion without alienation.Don Cupitt - 1994 - London: SCM Press.
    Don Cupitt argues that our age has recently become post-Christian and post-philosophical. Uncertain what to make of the new situation, people are becoming highly disoriented. Will either philosophy or theology ever again be able to focus our culture around a coherent, rational and commonly-acknowledged view of life? By way of an answer, Don Cupitt offers a reinvention of metaphysics. He aims to reconcile the scientific vision of the world, which brings everything down to a motion of tiny packets of energy, (...)

    Christ and the hiddenness of God.Don Cupitt - 1971 - Philadelphia,: Westminster Press.
    Written at the end of the 1960s, this book introduces a whole series of themes. problems and perplexities which have come to obsess Don Cupitt permanently. However at that stage he was still ready to align himself with that mainstream of theological writing which almost identifies orthodox faith with the quest for objectivity, whereas now he is not. In the case of God the considerations that were leading him to question received assumptions had to do with the problem of analogy (...)

    Creative faith: religion as a way of worldmaking.Don Cupitt - 2015 - Salem, Oregon: Polebridge Press.
    At some point very early on in its development, Christianity split between two different pathways: one path stayed with the teaching of Jesus and the primacy of ethics, the other started with the return of Jesus and, therefore, with supernatural belief. Today, ethics has been largely sidelined, viewed as secondary or subservient to belief. Don Cupitt argues that the time has come to give ethics priority in defining and shaping religious life. As he puts it, "No longer should we aim (...)

    Crisis of Moral Authority.Don Cupitt - 1972 - SCM Press.
    This book was written in 1970, in the days when even the Church Times was welcoming Don Cupitt as a stalwart believer. However, as the author now points out, it is an important pointer to the future. The straitlaced early Cupitt is obviously struggling to prevent the later Cupitt from bursting out.' Its starting point was straightforward enough. Many, perhaps most of the great critics of Christianity have rejected it chiefly on moral grounds. Yet, because they have tended to suffer (...)

    If new Platos or Buddhas were to appear today, what would they say about the nature of reality, the human condition and the way to happiness?The period 800-200 b.c.e. the so-called Axial Age was the time when Old World pioneering philosophers and religious teachers laid down the basic ideas by which people have been living ever since. Today those great religious and cultural traditions are coming to an end. We are entering a new Axial Age.Don Cupitt observes that this second (...)

    Ethics in the last days of humanity.Don Cupitt - 2016 - Salem, Oregon: Polebridge Press.
    Ethics in the Last Days of Humanity is not about the science of global warming so much as the absence of a serious ethical and religious response to it. When all existing 'reality' breaks down, ethics can no longer be based on nature or religious law. Cupitt advocates for an alternative inspired by the historical Jesus.

    The way to happiness: a theory of religion.Don Cupitt - 2005 - Santa Rosa, Calif.: Polebridge Press.
    Many theologians have concluded that supernatural causes are not needed to explain the rise of our great religious traditions, that religion, like the rest of culture, is a purely human creation. Many people take this as a reason for giving up the serious practice of religion. But Don Cupitt argues that it opens up fascinating unexplored territory. In The Way to Happiness, he gives an account of the liberating power of religion and the intense happiness that it can engender. This (...)
