A New Book by David Bentley Hart

David’s new book, Roland in Midnight, is now available from Amazon. Here’s what D. C. Schindler has to say about it:

“Who would ever have guessed that there could exist a creature on this planet with more jubilantly inventive wit, literary panache, and philosophical bite than even the great David Bentley Hart? But here he is: Roland the poet, the cynic, and the guru.”

My Collies talk to me all the time, but neither of them wax philosophical. Feanor is too busy barking at neigh­borhood intruders, and Tiriel spends her time being quietly adored, sacra­mentalized in the holy tummy rub. It will be a treat to read the musings of a canine who is both metaphysican and poet.

    There’s ‘Dog theology’ vs ‘Cat theology’. A dog says, “Wait a sec! You take care of me, you feed me, you love me. You must be God!” A cat says, “You take care of me, you feed me, and you love me. I must be God!” This probably has nothing to do with David’s new book, which I look forward to reading. We’ll see.

    So DBH is a low-IQ impostor who shamelessly passes the genius-level ruminations of his pet as his own…
    Shall we be surprised?
    No, because there’s at least one video out there, on Youtube, in which “Dr” Hart wears a golden bow tie on a purple shirt – surprisingly enough, that is legal in Indiana.
    Can even men like these be trusted?
    Can they be saved and avoid their proper comeuppance?
    Let us pay heed to Jesus’ words : “Beware of false scholars from Maryland, who come to you in golden bow ties and purple shirts, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves… You will know them by their shirt… Their SHIRT!!” – Jesus of Nazareth, seconds before he lost his poise and Katanaed Jewish merchants to death.

      The secret was bound to come out in the end. It was past time I gave credit where credit is due.

      Thanks, Al, for posting the notice. It is my profoundest book–though, for Roland, it’s little more than an intellectual bagatelle.

    Or, A Theology of a Good Dog.
    Cats may be zen masters, but dogs are true spiritual fathers. Looking forward to it. Fr Aidan will you be blogging a book study?

  4. This is the book about how we are all gods right? Roland will be the narrator concerning our epektasis?

    I hope I’m not the only one who thought this was a joke when I clicked on it.

    Any time I put forward a deep, philosophical question to my dog either he splash on its back with a cunning smile or he signals it’s time to go for a walk. Always supposed there is a deep meaning there.
    I will make him read this book before me
