Read a very interesting book review this weekend in the Wall Street Journal of
The review mentioned in the Tweet is sadly behind the pay wall, but here is reviewer Jeffery Collins’ assessment:
“Christendom Destroyed captures a great deal of truth about the wrenching transitions of the early modern age. As difficult as this history is, Mr. Greengrass narrates it with admirable clarity and a notable lack of condescension.”
My reading of the review suggests that Greengrass offers quite a bit with which I disagree. All the more reason to order the book and engage with the author’s thesis. At the very least (the review suggests) I will acquire a few stories to titulate classes unaware of their own religious heritage.
