No, I haven’t read it and would struggle to get round to it at the moment. But it looks interesting. I’d love to hear from anyone who has read it.

According to the blurb on Amazon, he argues that “today’s culture wars can be seen as a reprise of the basic antagonism that pitted pagans against Christians in the Roman Empire.” Two things. First, if that is the case, the historical process is reversed: Christianity is rapidly becoming history, as classical paganism was two thousand years ago. Secondly, one could argue that progressive secularism is more like the ethical rationalism (eg. Marcus Aurelius?) that would have replaced paganism if Christianity hadn’t got there first.
