“The Trial of the Witnesses is a truly exciting book that points to new ways of conceiving of and doing theology, both in its disruption of the terms of the postliberal debate and in it" modeling of a "thicker" form of textual analysis.” (The Journal of Religion, 2009)
"DeHart's The Trial of the Witnesses is both the most profound analysis to date of the so-called 'Yale School,' and a brilliant attempt to rehabilitate the distinctive theological approach of Hans Frei. But, more than that, it is also a highly suggestive and illuminating constructive proposal in its own right."
Faith and Theology
" DeHart sees postliberalism as a river whose future is in the many smaller streams of the delta it formed. Others may regard the very idea of a genuine and contained school of thought at Yale as overblown or parochial, seeing this school's contributions as part of a much bigger river flowing through 20th-century theology."
