" Hodges makes some good points, but is way off base on so many others. His reduction of atheists Harris, Hitchens, and Dawkins often seems as reductionist as the atheists are of Christianity and Islam. I long for a book that treats these subjects with more respect and less dogmatism. I am grateful for hedges' remarks on Joseph Conrad's realism on the savage streak in human nature, something we ignore to our peril. "
