Although I was not aquainted with all of the Heretics he addressed, I knew most of their names but not their personal doctrine, so I felt a bit handicapped when I initially began reading. He had so many interesting things to say that I found myself captivated by his wit and caught myself giggling at times! He has a way of provoking a person to rethink the way they believe. I think he is worth checking out! I have read his Orthodoxy and Everlasting Man and enjoyed them as well.
