    This was a good book but requires a knowledge of a great deal of background information from philosophy and theology to fully appreciate. It would also be good to have a good working knowledge of the philosophy of history/politics. I think the premise of the book--that the religion ...

    Brilliant. An excellent defense of Christianity from the ?religion of humanity? that so pervades many corners of the church. ...

    This book points you toward some interesting writers. I want to investigate Orestes Brownson to read Catholic thought on American politics. I want to read Soloviev's "A Short Tale of the Antichrist" in the context of the book in which it is a small part. I want to read Solzhenitsyn's "...

    I happened to be in London (on vacation) when the Brexit brouhaha was coming to a head and a million or so Brits descended on the downtown streets to denounce it. It was an impressive show. What?s going on is an overriding ?we are the world? sentiment. The question isn?t whethe...

    A wonderful little book on the religion of secularism: humanitarianism. Mahoney is a wonderful reader of Solzhenitsyn?s work, and in particular, the liberal conservatism of French catholic, Manent. He spares no Christian from taking the task of Christianity seriously above and agains...

    This was a 3.5 ? read The idea and the topic was interesting but I felt the topic could have been explored a bit deeper. It almost felt incomplete leaving much more to think about. The chapters on Russian literature made me want to pick up Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky again ! ...

    Good understanding of our time Mahoney gives a great history and applies it to our day. A great example of the fact that if we don't know our history we will certainly repeat it. That is a scary warning in this case. ...

    Thesis: the idol of our age is the religion of humanity (Auguste Comte?s term). Love of humanity, egalitarian social order, progress replaces belief in transcendent human goal in the vision of God. No evil or tragic dimension of life. Puts humanity in place of God. Rejects the God-ma...

    First off, this book you need a lot of pre knowledge on the subject. I was hoping for the introduction to the subject. But that is not the reason I gave it two stars. I gave two stars because he did not make his arguments well and just tells you to read more sources. Chapter 2 was the ...
