My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Murray’s description of the lives of Robert Louis Stevenson, Thomas Hardy, George Bernard Shaw, H.G. Wells, and Bertrand Russell was interesting and sad. His larger thesis, that their books played a major role in the decline of the Christian faith in Britain, didn’t have enough evidence to be persuasive.
You can see an article by John Piper that reflects on this book’s section on Robert Louis Stevenson here.
