Editorial Reviews


“Hart…has an octopus-like grip on contemporary culture, history and theology, as well as a vibrant, vocabulary-rich style.”—Nick Mattiske, Insights

“[A] provocative, informative treatise . . . [Hart’s] resounding challenge to orthodox Christian views on hell and his defense of God’s ultimate goodness will prove convincing and inspiring to the open-minded.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“An important book . . . a timely, and at times quite personal, reflection on a critical topic, replete with incisive theological and metaphysical insights and astringent polemic . . . Hart is a formida­ble thinker.”—Fr Aidan (Alvin) Kimel, Eclectic Orthodoxy

“Simultaneously wide-sweeping and combative . . . Hart’s argument is forceful, analytically clear, and compelling . . . Hart has written another provocative work which should rightly be taken up, read, debated, and prayed through.”—Myles Werntz, In All Things

“A wonderful gift . . . Hart challenges Christians to consider the ways we've yielded to self-absorption or failed to display empathy when conceptualizing eternity. In exploring these questions, we have an opportunity to become a little more like Christ.”—Jon Carlson, Evangelicals for Social Action

“[Hart] has established himself as one of the best theologians writing in English today and as hands down the best writer among contemporary Anglophone theologians.”—Nicholas Frankovich, National Review

“Extraordinary and important”—Bill Tammeus, Faith Matters blog

“[A] stunningly strong attack on the idea of eternal torment . . . Bracing in the extreme—a sturdy assault on an unappealing doctrine using vivid language and wide learning.”—Dwight A. Moody, The Meetinghouse

“Worth reading . . . [Hart’s] argument deserves serious consideration.”—Thomas P. Rausch, America 

“The work of a stirred and unyielding conscience . . . As much as the prophets, Hart thunders against the corrosive effects of Christianities rendered cruel through their incoherence . . . His is an argument that, frankly, I find irrefutable.”—Jason Micheli, Christian Century

“Hart masterfully articulates his case . . . Definitive and intellectually satisfying.”—Tyler Curtis, Arc Digital

“What That All Shall Be Saved demands of us is that we take Christianity at its radical word.”—Ed Simon, Los Angeles Review of Books

“A scathing, vigorous, eloquent attack on those who hold that that there is such a thing as eternal damnation . . . a forceful intervention that may usefully rebalance the debate.”—Karen Kilby, Commonweal

“Hart [is] essential reading for anyone, of any faith or none, who laments the rightward drift of American Christianity . . . Hart’s profound immersion in the Greek of the New Testament has convinced him that its message is one of social as well as spiritual emancipation.”—Michael Robbins, Bookforum

“[A] brilliant and impassioned argument for universal salvation . . . beautiful and thrilling.”—Joshua Leach, Reading Religion

“David Bentley Hart, the most eminent living anglophone theologian, asks the fundamental question: Is it possible that anyone is damned? Hart’s answer is no, and that negative is gorgeously elaborated in this book, with unmatched force and brio.”—Paul Griffiths, author of Christian Flesh

“David Bentley Hart never disappoints. Three years ago he published a translation of the New Testament; now comes a “companion” to take up a question that vexes many Christians. Does the New Testament teach that hell is everlasting? Hart is convinced, having wrestled with the language of the New Testament and plumbed early Christian thought, that it does not. In this original and lively book, Hart shows, why most Christian thinking about eternal damnation is unbiblical.”—Robert Louis Wilken, author of Liberty in the Things of God

“Hart shows with great clarity why the idea that our ultimate freedom lies in accepting or rejecting God as one option amongst others is profoundly mistaken. This is some of the most exacting, perspicuous and powerful theological writing I have read in recent years.”—Simon Oliver, Durham University

“If everything and everyone are not finally restored, then God is not God. This is the simple core of Hart’s unanswerable argument, masterfully developed. He calls us back to real orthodoxy, perhaps just in time.”—John Milbank, University of Nottingham

"At last! A brilliant treatment—exegetically, theologically, and philosophically— of the promise that, in the end, all will indeed be saved, and exposing the inadequacy—above all moral—of claims to the contrary.”—John Behr, St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary

"Unfettered theology! Do we really believe that anyone can be alienated from their destiny—God—forever? Aside from trying to process 'forever,' will not the excess of a genuine divinity revealed to us neutralize the sheer banality of evil?"—David Burrell, University of Notre Dame
(David Burrell)
