About the Author

David Bentley Hart is a religious studies scholar and a philosopher, writer, and cultural commentator. He is the author and translator of fifteen books, including That All Shall Be Saved: Heaven, Hell, and Universal Salvation.


"Theological Territories is an extremely diverse and yet substantial addition to David Bentley Hart's increasingly formidable body of theological writings, scarcely rivaled by anyone else within American theology. . . . Hart makes and develops several highly crucial arguments with great erudition, argumentative rigor, imaginative insight, and enormous panache."--John Milbank, professor emeritus, University of Nottingham
David Bentley Hart is among the most interesting and intellectually lively living theologians. . . . This volume as a whole could be used, very effectively (in the hands of the right teacher), as a how-to manual: it shows, with vigor, what it is like to think as a theologian. The attentive reader, rightly guided, could learn by imitating what's done here, and that is a rare thing."--Paul J. Griffiths, author of Christian Flesh
In this scintillating compilation of essays based on lectures--most published here for the first time--Eastern Orthodox scholar and cultural commentator Hart . . . examines the intersection of theology with other academic fields, including ethics, science, literature, and biblical hermeneutics. Whether conversing with theologian Rowan Williams on the healing purpose of tragedy, or meditating on 'the Problem of Evil' as laid out by Dostoyevsky, Hart's witty, erudite writing proves unsettling and invigorating.--Publishers Weekly
