Hart: totality's economy of violence

This book that I'm reading, The Beauty of the Infinite, by David Bentley Hart, is really good. I am enjoying it a lot. I am now about 3/4 through it and hope to finish this week or next. I will be supplying a few quotes here and there:

In Christ, totality's economy of violence is overcome by the infinity of God's peace, inasmuch as one order of sacrifice is overcome by another: sacrifice of the immolation of the beautiful is displaced by a sacrifice whose offering is one of infinite beauty.

P. 344
