Wilfred Cantwell Smith
According to the author, this book is a “social analysis”. In his opinion religious belief and the development of religious opinion are related to the economic background.
The book offers clear, vivid accounts of the various thinkers and movements of the past century. Summaries are given even of the attitudes of quite secondary figures, the disciples of the leading thinkers, if they help to show the development of thought. It also deals with the political attitude of the various schools of thought.
