Very thoughtful and insightful analysis of religion. The professor treats the subject with care on all sides and says many things that are profound. I found it to be excellent.
I read a lot. But this is one of the most important books I have ever read. I just wish every body would have the opportunity to listen to or read this book. Rarely is there such a distilled understanding of what history has to teach us. Durrant is one of the most intelligent, articulate and deep thinking people of our time (dead now). I now own his 11 volume history of the world. But this book is a gem. A clear thinking, facinating view of the sweep of history from one of the few people who really, really understand the sweep of history. This is a must read for everyone in my humble opinion. You don't even need to be interested in history really. You just have to be interested in humanity, it's state and the great priciples of life. It is almost more of a book of philosphy derived from a study of the history of humanity.
This was a very intriguing book. I enjoyed hearing a perspective on God and Religion from a very intelligent, well informed scientist with excellent credientials and deep experience in science. This is a very balanced and intelligent view of modern religious thought through the eyes of a keen scientific mind. His personal struggle with the co-existance of God and Science is very interesting. This is a great listen for anyone who is interested in both science and religion.
