Note: It is not for the faint of heart. Fundamentalists will hate it.
Mr. Harwood is neither sparing nor delicate in his presentation of the facts. But he is witty. I laughed out loud many times.
Very very educational.
Harwood pulls no punches. I personally find that refreshing. Everyone writing about matters such as this is going to have a natural bias. My approach to trying to ascertain the truth is to be aware of any writer's bias - and the fact that Harwood himself doesn't hide his is refreshing. Further, while he clearly has a perspective, what matters ultimately is whether the case he is presenting is based on solid evidence, and is reasonable. Thus far, my review of his book and much of the material in the bibliography leads me to think that he is on very solid ground overall.
Concerning recommending this book to a Christian, I think it would depend on the individual.Read more ›
