Darryl Hart

Darryl Hart is trained as an American historian (Johns Hopkins Ph.D.) and picked up enough theology at Westminster Seminary and Harvard Divnity School to get himself in trouble with folks in his own communion (the Orthodox Presbyterian Church) and with Unitarians. He is the author and editor of many books, including Defending the Faith: J. Gresham Machen and the Crisis of Conservative Protestantism in Modern America (Johns Hopkins University Press) and A Secular Faith: Why Christianity Favors the Separation of Church and State (Ivan R. Dee). He is currently working on a global history of Calvinism for Yale University Press.

He lives in Philadelphia with his wife, Ann, and teaches in the Intellectual Heritage program at Temple University (where he studied film as an undergraduate and wishes he had learned to be clever enough to make Thirty-Two Short Films about Glenn Gould).
