Hart is the Anglican Chaplain to Loughborough University and a member of the SoF Steering Committee. He believes "a traditional external deity outside our universe can be of no further use to us at this stage of our religious development", and argues that the Christian heritage must now be radically re-interpreted from a non-realist (non-objectivist) perspective. So his book discusses what it "means to hold a non-realist faith, to believe that language about God is really about the self, and religious belief is part of the creativity we all share in as part of our humanity".
