“the most crucial task”–David Bentley Hart


It may be that the most crucial task incumbent upon theology today is that of finally overcoming the overcoming of metaphysics. For roughly five centuries now, theological reasoning has found itself assailed by the same tedious but persistent refrain: the ringing imperative that it strip itself of philosophical tradition’s glitteringly gorgeous but cumbersome panoply of categories and concepts, so that it might again rush with youthful lightness of limb—chastened, humbled, naked, but finally free—into the embrace of the God who reveals himself only to the eyes of faith.
