The relationship between Heidegger and Theology is a complex one that is not easy to define. It unifies several strands in Heidegger's thought that have rarely been brought together in one place. First Heidegger's Catholic origins, next his flirtation with Mediaeval mysticism and his so-called 'conversion' to Protestantism. Underlying this is his reading of the Greek understanding of the divine.

Perhaps the most important part of this is Heidegger's discussion of what he variously called 'the atheism of phenomenology', the 'christianisation of philosophy' and his analysis of Hegel and Nietzsche as 'ontotheology' and as 'the end of metaphysics'. The book concludes with a discussion of the principal theologians who have engaged with Heidegger, and also an examination of theology's possible future engagement with Heidegger's work.
