Críticas:

"An unanswerable and frequently hilarious demolition of the shoddy thinking and historical illiteracy of the so-called New Atheists."-Michael Robbins, Commonweal -- Michael Robbins * Commonweal * "Hart has the gifts of a good advocate. He writes with clarity and force, and he drives his points home again and again. He exposes his opponents errors of fact or logic with ruthless precision."-Anthony Kenny, Times Literary Supplement "It is a taut and tart introduction to the ideas that drove the Christian Revolution, fired by righteous anger and with an arsenal of learning that explodes off the page."-Nick Mattiske, The Lutheran (Australian Lutheran Church) "A brilliant investigation of the current fad among intellectuals for atheism."-Contemporary Review "A provocative work, vigorous, humorous, erudite."-James R. A. Merrick, Scottish Bulletin on Evangelical Theory ". . . takes no prisoners in its response to fashionable criticisms of Christianity."-Dr Rowan Williams, The Archbishop of Canterbury, Church Times "Entertaining and challenging, this book brings us back to what Christmas is about."-Nick Baines, The Church Times (Christmas Books) "With impressive erudition and polemical panache, David Hart smites hip and thigh the peddlers of a 'new atheism' that recycles hoary arguments from the past. His grim assessment of our cultural moment challenges the hope that `the Christian revolution' could happen again."-Richard John Neuhaus, former editor in chief of First Things "Provoked by and responding to the standard-bearers of 'the New Atheism,' this original and intellectually impressive work deftly demolishes their mythical account of 'the rise of modernity.' Hart argues instead that the genuinely humane values of modernity have their historic roots in Christianity."-Geoffrey Wainwright, Duke Divinity School "In this learned, provocative, and sophisticated book, Hart presents a frontal challenge to today's myopic caricature of the culture and religion that existed in previous centuries."-Robert Louis Wilken, University of Virginia "Surely Dawkins, Hitchens et al would never have dared put pen to paper had they known of the existence of David Bentley Hart. After this demolition-job all that is left for them to do is repent and rejoice at the discreditation of their erstwhile selves."-John Milbank, author of Radical Orthodoxy: A New Theology "A devastating dissection of the 'new atheism,' a timely reminder of the fact that 'no Christianity' would have meant 'no West,' and a rousing good read. David Hart is one of America's sharpest minds, and this is Hart in full, all guns firing and the band playing on the deck."-George Weigel, Distinguished Senior Fellow, Ethics and Public Policy Center, Washington

Reseña del editor:

In this provocative book one of the most brilliant scholars of religion today dismantles distorted religious "histories" offered up by Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, and other contemporary critics of religion and advocates of atheism. David Bentley Hart provides a bold correction of the New Atheists's misrepresentations of the Christian past, countering their polemics with a brilliant account of Christianity and its message of human charity as the most revolutionary movement in all of Western history. Hart outlines how Christianity transformed the ancient world in ways we may have forgotten: bringing liberation from fatalism, conferring great dignity on human beings, subverting the cruelest aspects of pagan society, and elevating charity above all virtues. He then argues that what we term the "Age of Reason" was in fact the beginning of the eclipse of reason's authority as a cultural value. Hart closes the book in the present, delineating the ominous consequences of the decline of Christendom in a culture that is built upon its moral and spiritual values.

Descripción Yale University Press February 2010, 2010. Paper Back. Condición: New. The recent bestselling broadsides of the 'new atheists'-e.g. Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett, Christopher Hitchens, even literary figures like Philip Pullman and Dan Brown-cause our author to long for Old Atheists (or if not atheist, certainly anti-Christian cousins), such as Celsus, Diderot, Voltaire, Hume, Gibbon, and Nietzsche, all of whom Hart evokes as at least intellectually respectable. So Hart only spends a chapter or two dismissing the arguments of Dawkins and Co. His attentions are much more drawn to that which is expressed in the subtitle of this magnificent book: the Christian Revolution. Along the way, he historically deconstructs the material evidence of what might be called the Enlightenment consensus about the evils of Christianity: intolerance, suppression of scientific progress, championing of ignorance. The Christian revolution with which Hart is fascinated concerns the radical and unprecedented nature of the Church's insistence on the infinite value of each human person in the context of the ancient world. Here, where women, slaves, and the common laborer counted as nothing, came a proclamation and a practice-especially in the Church's worship, care for the poor, and theology-- that effectively annihilated distinctions of class, gender, and ethnicity. When all due qualifications are made for early Christianity's lapses-Hart is bracingly honest here-its rise, triumph, and transformation of the Roman world must be considered without parallel in the history of the West. Hart can pack more erudite content into sometimes perfect sentences than almost any writer we know, and his chapter, 'The Face of the Faceless,' is simply a masterpiece, tempting us to predict an immortal brilliance within its setting comparable to Dostoevsky's 'Grand Inquisitor' in The Brothers Karamazov.
