There were other things it got wrong - such as that Christianity is primarily Stoic. By the definition of its author - who asserted that Stoicism is sort of about getting the consolation prize, while Aristotle's philosophy of happiness is that happiness is a set of criteria that, even if you didn't exactly feel happy, you were still happy if you met these criteria - I would say Christianity, from my studies, is as much Stoic as it is Aristotelian and Epicurean - and not just in modern times. The Didache, for example, or the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7), or the Letter to the Romans are good examples of Christianity's sort of rule-setting, if you will, for what makes the happy life.
And there's more. But, frankly, if you're going to write a humanities book and can't get religion fundamentally right, I'm going to have more than a few problems with your book. You can love it. You can hate it. But please, get it RIGHT.
