I'm only giving this book two stars, not because most of what is in it is antiquated, there are many books that suffer with this, but because the author was obviously suffering from a handicap. Apparently Christianity was the one true religion and everything else was false. Not a good attitude for a historian who is trying to talk about pagan religions and ancient philosophy...
