Reviews

"In reading this book (which he surely would have done), Lenin himself might have been amused by Boer's own gift for the outrageously funny, and perhaps offended by an all-too-apt detection of the religious dimensions of his revolutionary perspectives. Modern-day readers will learn much about the Bolshevik 'god-builders' against whom Lenin so fiercely polemicized, and about the ironic twists through which latter-day Bolshevik 'god-builders' turned this secular revolutionary into a deity. Boer's genuine respect for the man and his thought intertwines in fascinating ways with an intimate knowledge of Christian rhetoric and theology, resulting in a fresh, provocative contribution to intellectual history, religious studies, and Marxist scholarship." - Paul Le Blanc, Professor of History, La Roche College, USA; Author, Lenin and the Revolutionary Party and Marx, Lenin, and the Revolutionary Experience.
