While the main thesis of the book is one that is interesting and one that has seemed to have some merit (with only technological advances like the Green Revolution to buy us more time), the entire book has a very Christian-oriented tone that seems unnecessary. The ending, in general, is very focused on the problem of evil, which (while not necessarily bad) is just sort of baffling at the end of a book on economics and population. A good book, nonetheless.
