REVIEW: The Religious Test

The Religious TestThe Religious Test by Damon Linker

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This read like a long (very long) introduction to some other book which never seemed to materialize. And the animosity to the "new atheists" (as he kept referring to Dawkins, Harris, Hitchens, et al) had me wondering if they threw a party and neglected to invite him. He seemed to bear them quite a grudge.

Another good pass at the ms by an editor might have helped to tighten the prose--there were definitely long bits that seemed to plod along. Still, despite its shortcomings it proved a serviceable apologetic for the moderate cause.
