Kathy I saw Brad Gregory speak on BYU Forum. He gave one of the most brilliant, engaging lectures I have heard. I called him and asked for a transcript of the talk and he told me that he was writing an article based on the lecture. Three years later the article finally came out in an obscure scholarly journal. The talk titled: "On Secular Bias in the Study of Religion" was filled with wisdom. Dr. Gregory spoke about the folly of judging history from the outside. We, who know what the earth looks like from space, cannot judge those whose perspectives were narrowed by their times. This book doles out the same kind of wisdom and is not nearly as droll as one might think.
