Another book from the age when philosophers were writing their versions of Utopian societies. This one has a Christian spin to it. It's well thought-out, but disappointingly incomplete. It's interesting when compared to More's Utopia, of course. I didn't find it an exceptional example of the practice (writing about Utopia), but that's probably due to its incompleteness.
