Review:

Stanley Hauerwas, Duke Divinity School<br /> &quot;The sheer delight that David Bentley Hart's turns of phrase invite tempts me to agree with almost anything he writes almost. Not since Newman have we had a theologian at once so erudite, profound, stylistically brilliant, and funny. His harsh judgments and outrageous opinions betray an irrepressible generosity of soul.&quot; <br />Richard John Neuhaus, editor-in-chief of&quot;First Things&quot;<br /> &quot;There are few thinkers or writers today, or of any time, who can match the erudition, wit, and fetching prose of David Hart. Read this book and be prepared to be instructed, entertained, and provoked to think again about the really important questions.&quot; <br />Paul J. Griffiths, Duke Divinity School<br /> &quot;David Bentley Hart is an agent provocateur with a taste for beauty, as the saturated prose and argument of this volume abundantly show. We Christians are lucky to have him, and anyone Christian or not with a taste for argument and wit will find this volume a delight. Read Hart on Gogol or on Waugh and learn thereby to love them more and for the right reasons. Or read him on the difference between Christ and nothing, and come to understand how that is the only difference that finally counts. In any case, read him.&quot;&quot;<br /><br />Stanley Hauerwas, Duke Divinity School &quot;The sheer delight that David Bentley Hart's turns of phrase invite tempts me to agree with almost anything he writes almost.
