Reviews of The Victory of Reason: How Christianity Led to Freedom, Capitalism, and Western Success

Overall customer rating: 5.000
learner

a very good read

by learner on Dec 24, 2009

Mr. Stark explores subjects that are increasingly ignored in our schools today. His views also agree with and support other scholars on this subject.

A very good read.
