Quinn has some prophetic things to say as he rightly notes that Christianity hasn't historically lived up to the teaching of Jesus and the early Church. However, as a strident atheist he wants to throw the baby out with the bath water and reject the role the Bible has played in forming modern society. Throughout the book it is clear that he believes in free speech as long as your free speech doesn't disagree with his truth. He rejects ecclesiastical authority but sets himself up as an expert on the history of ecclesiastical affairs - able to see the atheistic truth from his god's eye view. Quinn gets a A for seeing the speck in the eye of Christianity but a C- for not considering the log in his own eye and failing to provide a more balanced history. ( )
