Rather than being a pro- or anti-Christian document, it is basically a review of how worship in the UK has changed over the last few decades. The author has certainly packed a lot of denominations into his life and describes them so readably, and accurately from my own youthful upbringing, that I have already bought a couple of extra copies for use as 2014 Christmas presents, though I have yet to decide which of my friends would benefit most from them.
By my calculation, Mr Moreton appears to be only a little beyond halfway to my age of 86 years, so I can hope that his religious journey will mature even further and I look forward to reading (or more likely having read to me) a sequel in 20 years or so to show that he has come to share my favourite text - "He who believes he has not been brainwashed is brainwashed; he who knows he has been brainwashed is not brainwashed". (I can't quote chapter and verse for that, but it must surely be somewhere within the 17 gospels rejected for various reasons from the original bible.)
I do not know Mr Moreton and have never knowingly met him, despite his apparent close proximity, so it is from a completely unbiased viewpoint that I recommend his book as a source of knowledge and entertainment.
