David Bentley Hart discusses Gregory of Nyssa - Part 3

Why did the wrong guy winThe Disastrous results of the rivalry between two visions of God

Gospel Conversations welcomes you to the third talk on Gregory of Nyssa between Tony Golsby-Smith and David Bentley Hart. The towering genius of Augustine casts a long and too often dark shadow over western Christianity. What would Christianity have looked like if the equal genius of Gregory had achieved such dominance? Why did the wrong guy win?

Tony and David rove over these questions in a riveting conversation.
