really liked it

Brilliant, if biting, deconstruction of the "new atheism" as intellectually, academically inept. The best parts of the book are Hart's descriptions of Greco-Roman paganism and how Christianity brought a 'revolution' to that culture. As an Eastern Orthodox theologian, Hart writes about the Trinity, the Incarnation, the doctrine of creation with special skill and beauty. He is also the most helpful contemporary theologian I've read on the modern notion of freedom (see chapter two) and its influence in our culture.
Recommended readers: academic or intellectual readers interested in hearing the other side of the story regarding Christian history.
