World magazine interviews Stark about his new book The Victory of Reason : How Christianity Led to Freedom, Capitalism, and Western Success. I’ve read Stark’s book For the Glory of God and it is worth getting. Wonderful discussion of the eradication of slavery and some good material on pre-reformation reformers.
I have it on good authority that the companion volume One True God : Historical Consequences of Monotheism will be under the tree for me this year. Now I’m adding this new book to my wish list.
So many good books, so little time.
