Publisher's Description

Rowan Williams says that David Bentley Hart "can always be relied on to offer a perspective on the Christian faith that is both profound and unexpected." A new collection of this brilliant scholar's work, The Hidden and the Manifest contains nineteen essays by Hart on theology and metaphysics.

Spanning Hart's career both chronologically and topically, these essays cover such subjects as the Orthodox understanding of Eucharistic sacrifice; the metaphysics of Paradise Lost; Christianity, modernity, and freedom; death, final judgment, and the meaning of life; and many more.

Editorial Reviews

Paul J. Griffiths
"David Bentley Hart is the most consistently interesting and provocative theologian at the moment writing in English."

R. R. Reno
"David Bentley Hart is without doubt today's most brilliant essayist, polemicist, and fabulist."

Stanley Hauerwas
"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."
