Faith without God .

… Nietzsche and Death of God: New books by Peter Watson, Terry Eagleton | New Republic. (Hat tip, Rus Bowden.)

In The Antichrist, which I read one Easter Sunday many years ago, Nietzsche interestingly alternates between the first person singular and first person plural. The most blasphemous statements are in the plural. Those in the singular seem to be a critical commentary on those who utter the statements in the plural. This makes the book more ambiguous than is usually noted.
