No Better Argument

In his splendid Beauty of the Infinite (about which more later), David Hart says something to the effect that “the church has no argument deeper or more basic than Jesus.” That is a remarkably concise way of undercutting a certain kind of theology, one that attempts to establish some kind of parameters for theology in nature, or contemporary culture, or whatever. It is a profoundly evangelical move (though Hart is Orthodox), and at the same time a profoundly Catholic. And, in contrast to the hypermodernisms of atheistic postmodernism, it is TRULY postmodern.
