Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great Introduction to Thinkers and Their Context  May 2, 2003
If you're looking for a book on the Enlightenment and religious and philosophical thinkers in the Enlightenment that takes seriously that thinkers' ideas emerge in response to historical context, this one is great. Clearly written and not overloaded with technical theological and/or philosophical terms, the author helps readers understand the mutual relation between historical context and thinkers--how both shape each other. Very suitable for courses on Modern Christian Thought.
 
Brings it all together  Dec 31, 1999
I can't even count how many times I've gone around and around with friends trying to properly frame the role and significance of scientific discovery from a Christian perspective. This book provides an invaluable historical perspective on a centuries-old quandary. It is a fascinating book on the effects of the French Enlightenment and the Reformation on religious thought. James Byrne is informative without being dry, and he treats both sides with respect, not condescension. I love this book - the best book I've bought so far this year.
