There are some interesting studies and ideas presented in this work.

Harris falls short of providing a grounding for ethics in a naturalistic/ humanistic worldview.

He does not take seriously some of the problems associated with hard materialism: how consciousness evolves in an unconscious universe, for instance.

A good introduction to Pentecostalism.

This is a good introduction to Pentecostalism. However, as someone who attends a Pentecostal church regularly, like myself, this book does not break new ground. Of course, at the time of its release much of Wigglesworth's teaching would have been very ground-breaking. But this book may not be very insightful for charismatic Christians who are already mature in their walk with Jesus.

A terrific autobiography

The narrator does a terrific job bringing this autobiography to life.

I was expecting the book to be more about the shift Lewis made from being an atheist to a Christian (as the subtitle indicates). Sure, this is certainly how the book ends with its closing chapters. Nevertheless, Lewis's conversion and the intellectual and personal experiences that led to this are much food for thought, and helped me to better clarify my own experience with faith and its relationship to life/ academia.

Chesterton highlights the poetic and symbolic power of orthodoxy. He argues that progress must be rested within an orthodox frame for it to have lasting meaning.

This is a great read for a Christian who would like a new way to look at their faith and its connection to conservative belief.
