Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase

Perhaps the most critical reason that people today are unable to offer critical analysis to what they read and hear about "spirituality" and religion, is because the have no foundation in critical knowledge such as history and the conflict of ideas. This book offers a profound foray into acquainting the reader with how the conflict of ideas has impacted human understanding for many hundreds of years.

Lunn's book, "Revolt Against Reason" is now a half a century in age, but is more poignantly relevent now, than when it was first published.

It is not a popular work, and seems to be known to only those in religious circles. Lunn's work is so intense, that its impact upon me is that I can only read at most, a single chapter at a time, and then must stop to absorb the import of all that he has written.

Lunn follows mankinds abandonment of Logic. While it is true that other authors and historians have traced this decline, Lunn follows in detail certain particulars involving the Reformation of Martin Luther, and indicates how this progressive rejection of Logic lead to the Holocaust of Hitler's Germany, and how the past rejection for religious morality and knowledge has progressed into Scientism and the associated philosophy of Ontological Naturalism.

It is works like this, which stand as Shibboleths, and a counter to the many publications which serve to misrepresent history and fact. There are many of these in current publication. Lunn's work shows the historical foundation for the abandonment of reason. His book is perhaps, the richest treasure trove I have ever encountered, for the specific citation of source material.
