Just curious if anyone has read any Nikolai Berdyaev and how he is viewed (if he is at all) from Orthodoxy.

I'm currently reading The Destiny of Man.

I have read a lot of him in online pages (and there's a lot to find), and some in books. I absolutely love him and find him very thought-provoking, far ahead of the other religious writers from the same background. As for the opinion of others, there seems to be a mix: some consider him ok, some consider him unorthodox and are wary of him, while others consider him dangerous and to be avoided. He had sharp disagreements with a few of the major figures that English-speaking Orthodox often look up to, such as Florovsky and Lossky, so I'm sure that doesn't help his rep.
