Reviews

"The gold in the book for me is the conclusive demonstration that modern science came out of western religion which is integral and even essential to its launch and direction. This is a much needed radical addition to the prevailing notions of the Enlightenment." -- Melvynn Bragg, Journalist and Broadcaster
