David Bentley Hart on Freedom and Nihilism

This is an extremely interesting lecture by Eastern Orthodox theologian David Bentley Hart.  Hart’s thesis is that the abandonment of the ancient Christian concept of God and good and evil within Christianity paved the way for the modern concept of freedom defined as the freedom to do what we would like without obstruction and hence, ultimately, nihilism.  This is a most provocative and interesting thesis, and one worthy of consideration.
