Excellent run through an essential subject, 10 Dec. 2013
An excellent book, which takes one on a grand journey through 30,000 years of belief. A lot of learning carefully digested and presented dispassionately and with a light touch: it is not a Dawkins rant. I found the section on early Christianity and the development of the faith particularly informative and perspective-providing. I don't think there is a book quite "in this space". Glad I read it.
