David Bentley Hart on the Meaning of Hell

 

A very much true quote from David Bentley Hart’s book The Beauty of the Infinite: The Aesthetics of Christian Truth

 

Bruce Charlton has also mentioned it on his blog in this post. “The pursuit of Virtue, detached from its unity with Truth and Beauty in the Good – is a major pathology of Western thought”. The relativisation of something as high and essential as beauty as simply a matter of taste has indeed disastrous consequences.
