Read full description of the books:
Great book, for what it tries to do. I love McGrath, and this book was almost a 5-star, but I couldn't ignore the flaws, however minor. There was a spot where he uses a parable to make an apologetic point completely different from the original divine meaning of the story. In another section he simply bashes on Philip Pullman and Dan Brown for a while, tearing apart their fictional works without really coming to a point. McGrath needs a more outspoken editor. And I wish he would have made this book three times deeper.
