Tom Holland is an historian and author of many books including "Dominion: The Making of the Western Mind." Here he speaks with Glen Scrivener about losing his faith. But the faith that he loses is a faith in what he calls "the pallid simulacrum" of Christianity — western liberal values. Instead he has found himself surrendering to the moral and mythical truth of the stories — ie the stories of Christianity.
RESET is a series of conversations exploring the meaning crisis. With the help of cultural analysts and biblical scholars we’re going back to the beginning — to Genesis, the West’s great origins story — to see whether the ancient text can speak today.
In these interviews, Glen Scrivener, an ordained church minister and filmmaker, asks questions about conflict, suffering, death, sex, equality, science, and what it means to be human. This is the third interview in the series: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4zD5797LHdfMAdMokPT9wtUl5TxJ5_np
