"All the world’s a stage"—but are the men and women merely players, or actors in a heavenly drama?

In God on Stage, renowned author and professor Peter Kreeft explores fifteen great dramas, and within them, five great themes: life, death, suffering, religion, and damnation. From classics like Oedipus the King and Hamlet to modern plays like Robert Bolt’s A Man for All Seasons and Cormac McCarthy’s The Sunset Limited, Kreeft draws vivid lessons on the big questions we all ask ourselves.

Like the plays it takes up, God on Stage invites readers to smile and frown, ponder and fall in love, and sit back in awe and wonder—at art, God, and the art of God that is man.

What People are Saying

“Made in his image, we have it in our DNA to be creators of worlds on the sub-level of art and specifically theater. Kreeft’s insights into the art of the human drama evoke what Karol Wojtyła meant when he said, ‘Outside of the drama . . . man cannot fulfill himself as a person.’”

— John Walker, Associate Professor of Theater, Franciscan University of Steubenville

“The world’s a stage, and we are all called to play our part in the drama of life and love. Peter Kreeft doesn’t merely play a part. He plays many parts, and he plays them all so well. He is one of our age’s greatest philosophers. He is a great apologist. He is a very good writer. He entertains. He makes us smile. He makes us laugh. He makes us look at ourselves and each other in a new light. And now, this tried and tested guide to life guides us through some of the greatest plays ever written. Those wishing to go deeper into the meaning of life and death, and the mystery of love and suffering, will find no better guide than Peter Kreeft.”

— Joseph Pearce, author of Through Shakespeare’s Eyes: Seeing the Catholic Presence in the Plays

“Peter Kreeft modestly calls himself a ‘tour guide’ of these fifteen plays, but he’s something better than that: he’s a gregarious fellow sightseer, an enthusiastic rambler holding forth less systematically and more vividly than the tour guide. I’m reminded a bit of Sister Wendy Beckett’s art commentary, disparaged by some professional art critics, but beloved by ordinary people who learned more about art appreciation from a few minutes of her rapturous discourse than from pages of typical art criticism.”

— Deacon Steven D. Greydanus, creator of DecentFilms.com
