Jason sits down with David Bentley Hart, his former teacher, his idol, and his man-crush all in one. David Hart may well prove to have been the most significant theologian of the 21st century. He is the author of The Doors of the Sea: Where Was God in the Tsunami?, The Beauty of the Infinite, Atheist Delusions, and the Experience of God. And, as you’ll hear, he’s just translated the New Testament for Yale University Press.
With his famous dog Roland at his feet, DBH discusses the Church’s loss of classical theism, the (evil) God most Christians worship, the logical incoherence of Process Theology, Hell, Christian Freedom, Reformed (mis)translations of Scripture, and his own personal suffering.
