BB writes as an insider, having been a committed fundamentalist, his critique of which is lucid, detailed, and judicious qualified by Biblical examples of exaggeration and chop logic. I have read only half it, and I hope he is critical only of the fundamentalists. Dostoievsky wrote: "When man(kind) ceases to believe in God he would rather destroy himself than go on living". Ideological worship of the last century led to the death of millions. Religious wars too are an abomination; but mankind without God is a loose cannon and - controversiallly- even fundamentalism may be better than our addiction to modern hedonism. All extremism must be criticised for it is from criticism that reformation becomes possible, just as we in England fought a Civil War which led to the embracing of religious freedom and a Bill of Rights. BB's book is admirable in its honesty.
