Meaty and thoroughly enjoyable, albeit not a casual read. I value Taylor's ability to integrate historical event and cultural import. He does us a good service in acknowledging that even clergy (whatever the religious persuasion) rarely think theologically and sets out a definition of "religion" as a schemata that is constantly teetering between stability and flux.
