The Atheist Christian

Browsing through a Christian book catalog the other day I noticed this title:

The Christian Atheist: Believing in God but Living As If He Doesn't Exist by Craig Groeschel

This reminded me of Slavoj Žižek's talks about belief. I believe that if he were to write this book, it would have the converse title:

The Atheist Christian: Denying God but Living As If He Does Exist

I think this may the position for many people in the church. They attend services and do their best to apply Christ's teachings, but they doubt God in their heart of hearts. In a way this is superior to the premise of the book cited above, at least when read through the lens of James 2.
