It's kept light and yet "meaty", with witty aphorisms, brilliant short stories, and dry one-liners that almost remind me of Samuel Clemens. McCabe was that good.
Although the data Fr McCabe uses in some of his arguments betrays its era, the wonderfully acerbic literary style keeps you chuckling all the way through.
If nothing else, it provides an exceptional look into the biblical truth argument that raged shortly after the amazing scientific discoveries made in the 19th century.
The arguments are rational (if slightly pointed), his scholarship is utterly impeccable, and yet he keeps the text interesting and to the point.
On the basis of this one collection of essays, I've purchased everything I can find by this author - he's that good.
I hope our religious readers will be tempted to see what he says.
In summary : a tad outdated, but very well written and truly intriguing discussions.
