New podcast episode with David Bentley Hart: The Classical God and the Insanity of Atheism, Part 1

Is western atheism a novel movement? How has the atheism of today misunderstood the metaphysics of the doctrine of God? Is the classical understanding of God articulated by Eastern and Western Fathers a better antidote to contemporary atheism than the modern, relational view of God? Why is the Christian God the first cause, that being who is the necessary and absolute being? Is God the ontological source of the goodness and bliss we so desperately search for?

In this episode of the Credo podcast, Matthew Barrett is joined by David Bentley Hart to answer these difficult questions. David Bentley Hart is the Assistant Director of Undergrad Research Assistants at the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study. He earned his PhD in Religious Studies from the University of Virginia in 1997. Dr. Hart has published over 450 articles and a number of books including Atheist DelusionsThe Experience of God, and The Hidden and the Manifest. In 2011, he was awarded the Michael Ramsey Prize of the Church of England.
