Hoping Against Hope (Review)

This review is for the book "Hoping Against Hope" by John D. Caputo.

I found this book extremely difficult to read. I did not look forward to reading it and had to force myself to pick it up and try to bog through all the philosophy in the book. I would like to point out that I don't particularly enjoy philosophy, and so it was really hard for me to understand almost everything that Caputo said in this book.

There were a few phrases here and there that I could understand and that I actually did agree with. Caputo talks about religion beginning and ending with grace. He attributes grace to God. He admits that he is not omniscient like God.

If you like philosophy, and want to hear an autobiography of Caputo that is slightly overwhelming, you will most likely enjoy this book.

Thank you to Cross Focused Reviews for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
