Kennedy weaves a broad loom and introduces characters such as Thomas Aikenhead, Chevalier de la Barre and Baron d'Holbach to the unititiated. It's an easy read and excites the truth-seeker to delve into extensive "books consulted" list.
The point of Ludovic Kennedy's work is to promote thought and to answer some of the doubts of the waverers. In this regard it does an excellent job. After reading this book you come away with the view that christianity is a religion that has survived by stifling free expression and that established religions are there because it is useful to elites rather than their truthfulness. If Kennedy wanted to get us to question the status quo he could not have written a better book.
