Without God, Without Creed book. Nor was the New Testament immune, as shocked American found out when Strauss' Life of Jesus was translated into English. Turner's history of three centuries of unbelief in America is riveting scholarship and also sobering for all of us who lead the church today. For he claims that church leaders themselves are primarily responsible for creating the conditions in which unbelief grew.

Ken Myers on James Turner’s Without God, Without Creed: The Origins of Unbelief in America: This detailed and wide-ranging exercise in intellectual history is concerned with a single question regarding Western cultural life: How did the practically universal assumption of God disappear?  . Like all the books I’ve discussed in this column, this one should be required reading by every pastor and seminary student. Without God, Without Creed presents a valuable case study of how forms of cultural adaptation that are well-intentioned and within the bounds of bare moral permissibility nonetheless can fall short of being constructive or beneficial.

"A crafted, intelligent book. The prose is remarkably clear, as is the argument. Turner offers us intellectual history in something like the grand manner." -- Reviews in American History

James C. Turner was a Professor of history at Notre Dame who specialized in intellectual history. In this 1985 book he set out to answer how unbelief in God became an intellectual possibility. Turner ultimately suggests that non-belief has religious roots, that the move to try to prove God rationally and accommodate religion and science in the eighteenth and nineteenth century ultimately made God seem implausible. As Turner explains in the book "If anyone is to be arraigned for deicide, it is not Charles Darwin but his adversary Bishop Samuel Wilberforce, not the godless Robert Ingersoll but the Godly Beecher family." (pg. xiii)

It's a persuasive argument. Turner makes clear how the choice to embrace Scottish Common Sense philosophy led to the creation of a rational religious belief. By the early nineteenth century theologians had little faith, they instead saw God as a necessary logical explanation for the world. The development of a scientific worldview that had little room for arguments from design or other divine explanations of nature caused disbelief because it undermined a century's worth of intellectual support for God. Turner speculates that theological traditions based on symbolic language and truth, like the liberal theology of Horace Bushnell or the intuition based ideas of the Transcendentalists might have been better able to support religious belief than the arguments of theologically orthodox Protestant theologians.

Turner's work is somewhat limited in geographic and chronological scope. The first section of the book, which covers intellectual history from 1500 to 1865, examines how both European and American intellectual culture contributed to non-belief. The second section, which covers 1865 to 1900, is entirely an American story about the rise of agnosticism. It's regrettable that Turner ends so early, before the rise of either prominent humanists or atheists.

While books have certainly come out since 1985 that touch on this topic, particularly Charles Taylor's "The Secular Age," Turner's book is still an important work. If you have an interest in religious studies, American intellectual history or secularization Turner's book will be insightful. It's intended for academic audiences, but I suspect it could comfortably be read by an upper level undergraduate. This book certainly deserves widespread recognition and readership.

This is a "big picture" book, and an important historical study. This is the kind of work historians should be doing. The author writes well, keeping the reader's interest. I learned a lot from the book, and I recommend it to all who value Western civilization, who want to know how it developed, and who care about where it is going.
