Bertrand Russell--agnostic, pacifist, great humanitarian, and Nobel Prize laureate--reviews in this volume the conflict between science and traditional religion during the last four centuries, and attempts to estimate the influence of present-day science upon present-day theology.
Pros: A well- documented thesis by one of the best thinkers of the twentieth-century.
Cons: The Christian Church and the Papacy are portrayed in their dark periods.
The Bottom Line: I recommend this book by one of the greatest thinkers of our time. His views on religion and science had truths, fair.
