In the third volume of his History of Christian Ideas, Jan Rohls focuses on the question of God with its controversial answers. In ancient Christianity, the God of Israel united with the philosophical God of the Greeks and through adaptation and criticism of Platonism became a triune God. In the modern era, this God has undergone a crisis. Not only was the Trinity seen as irrational and unbiblical, but the validity of the evidence of the existence of God was challenged. Rohls shows that this led to atheist positions up to the declaration of God's death on the one hand but on the other hand to varying attempts to transform the concept of God. Questions such as whether or not God is transcendent or innate, changeless and unsuffering or in the becoming and suffering, person or spirit, accessible through reason or only through revelation, are given special emphasis.
