Kent Dobson climbed Mount Sinai in search of the God who had eluded him. Instead he got bitten by a camel. The senior pastor of one of the most prominent churches in America, Dobson was growing disillusioned with his faith. One Sunday, he preached, "I don?t know what the word God means anymore." He left the church, but his quest for God became more intense than ever.

John D. Caputo has a long career as one of the preeminent postmodern philosophers in America. The author of such books as Radical Hermeneutics, The Prayers and Tears of Jacques Derrida, and The Weakness of God, Caputo now reflects on his spiritual journey from a Catholic altar boy in 1950s Philadelphia to a philosopher after the death of God. Part spiritual autobiography, part homily on what he calls the ?nihilism of grace,? Hoping Against Hope calls believers and nonbelievers alike to participate in the ?praxis of the kingdom of God,? which Caputo says we must pursue ?without why.?
