That's an amazing book. An amazingly fucked-up book. I remember finding it in the library in college and reading it when I should have been revising for something-or-other.read klaus kinski's autobiography recently, it's a must-read. if you know anything about kinski you're probably aware that he was a bit mental but in fact he was absolutely mental. good writer too.
This was an interesting enough read after all, it concentrated more on historical aspects of christianity than on theological stuff. It was quite convincing in its defence of christianity as a force for social improvement in the past, less so in its suggestion that without a powerful christian influence in the world we are all doomed to behave like rotters towards eachother. it also did nothing to undermine my firmly held atheist beliefs.I've started Atheist Delusions: The Christian Revolution and its Fashionable Enemies by David Bentley Hart. Its a kind of anti God Delusion thing, entertainingly written but i can see myself getting tired of it.
