The author takes us all the way back to the Renaissance, through the Reformation, and then to the Enlightenment, where everything goes wrong, and stays wrong.The author also exposes the fallacy in the criticism that belief in theological dogma inhibits an open-ended search for knowledge and truth.He convincingly demonstrates that Christian theology provides a useful framework for acquiring and for integrating knowledge and doesn't stifle the pursuit of truth.
