I found this book to be invaluable in it's extreme detailing of the assault of the church upon the advancement of scientific knowledge. White leaves no stone unturned in his unfolding drama of the lengths the church went to trying to keep mankind in ignorance. It's thoroughness is unmatched. I strongly reccomend this book to all persons even slightly interested in the history of Christianity. This book is a definate eye-opener!!
Not that good
