In this book provocating one of the most brilliant scholars of religion today deformed religious demonized “stories” offered by Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, and other contemporary critics of religion and advocates of atheismDavid Bentley Hart provided a bold correction of the New Atheists’ misrepresentations of the Christian past, fighting their polemics with a brilliant account of Christianity and its message of human charity as the most revolutionary movement in the whole of western history.Hart describes how Christianity has transformed the ancient world in ways that we have forgotten: to bring the liberation of fatalism, conferring great dignity on human beings, to subvert the most cruel aspects of pagan society, and the elevation of charity above all virtues.He then argued that what we call “The Age of Reason” was in fact the beginning of the eclipse of the reason of authority as a cultural value.Hart closes the book in the present, delimiting the harmful consequences of the fall of Christianity in a culture based on its moral and spiritual values.
