Martin Heidegger, father of the study of being, explains that we humans are enmeshed or absorbed in the world in ways that are more fundamental and deeper than our cognitive, intentional, or analytical ways of being; that we move about in the world without consciously guiding each and every step so to speak. Most of our living and our activity is completely absorbed in the world and is not deliberate or consciously intentional. We find ourselves opening the refrigerator door or arriving at work after a long drive without consciously or thoughtfully guiding our activity at each point along the.

This book is a bit of a disappointment. The author, John Macquarrie, is a distinguished Anglican theologian and the translator of "Being and Time." It would be natural to expect that any book by MacQuarrie entitled "Heidegger and Christianity" would analyze the religious implications of Heidegger's philosophy, or discuss Heidegger's influence on Christian theologians such as Karl Rahner. Instead, the bulk of this short book simply summarizes the main themes and conclusions of Heidegger's best-known books and lectures, which were mostly of secular interest. Religion is discussed only in the final chapter, leaving the reader feeling cheated.

On the positive side, MacQuarrie writes clearly and takes a balanced view of Heidegger. He regards the German philosopher as one of the great thinkers of the 20th century, while acknowledging that his tortured language is difficult to interpret, and that his tendency to substitute etymology for logic can open the door to nonsense. It's good to read a writer like MacQuarrie who knows and respects Heidegger's works but who avoids the extremes of Heidegger-worship. This book would be useful as an orientation to the Heidegger corpus. But readers looking for theology, or even for a critical analysis of Heidegger's secular thinking, should look elsewhere.

The book starts by noting some of the twists and turns in Heidegger's life and thought; and by showing the importance of Being in the beginnings of western philosophy (but only in the beginning and then quickly forgotten -- according to Heidegger).
The main question in the book (as you probably already know from the title) is whether Heidegger's thought is compatible with Christianity. Of course to answer this question we first needed to know what Heidegger's thought consisted of, which takes up most of the book and makes it worth while even if you don't care if Heidegger can be 'Christianized'.
Although the book is brief (only 121 pages) it covers everything from Being and Time to Time and Being and beyond (which is a long and mystifying way -- or at lest it is without this book). Heidegger's Nazism is also dealt with very briefly, but the main concern in the book, after giving a tour of the philosophy, is the relationship to Christianity. Others before Macquarrie have seen this relationship Etienne Gilson, for example, clamed that Heidegger ' is taking us to the only real metaphysical problem. I believe he could... help us not only to deeper insights into his own thought, but even into that of... Thomas Aquinas'.
It is difficult (at lest for me and I suppose others with similar obsessions) to read Heidegger's attempted retrievals of Being -- that light by which all existing entities are viewed. And not think of biblical passages like Exodus 3:14. I supposes in the end some of Heidegger's thoughts are good for Christianity while some are not (or less obviously so). The ontological difference for the most part probably is; while all the twisting and turning of Being would probably be the end of anything like an orthodox Christianity.
This book doesn't say that Heidegger's philosophy was Christian -- in fact Heidegger said a Christian philosophy was nonsense 'a round square and a misunderstanding' -- but if you want an intro. to his thought or see some potential parallels between his thought and Christianity this is a good book.
