Reflections on the current ' death of God ' theology and its message by WILLIAM HAMILTON
Professor of Theology,
Colgate-Rochester Divinity School Rochester, N.Y.
There is no question about it: ' Death of God ' is a striking, rhetorical, and offensive phrase. The Death-of-God theologians do not call themselves that in order to give offence. They mean 'death '.
Professor Hamilton's talk is introduced by HUBERT HOSKINS

China seems to be in the middle of yet another domestic upheaval -the news is confusing and wrapped in jargon. What is meant by the term 'cultural revolution.' and who is behind it? Who has unleashed the Red Guards, and are they stern revolutionaries or merely xenophobic thugs? Is there a desperate struggle for the leadership going on behind the scenes?
The current situation is interpreted by RODERICK MACFARQUHAR
Editor of The China Quarterly and ANATOLE GOLDBERG chief commentator.
BBC East European Service
Produced by Keith Hindell
