It doesn't seem too appropriate to review a book on then contemporary American religious leaders so far after it was published in 1993. We continue to delight in the fall from grace of those who would condemn us or set themselves up as the exemplars--the Duggars being a recent example. Being positive, this book would benefit from a 2015-16 revision of where Railey and the others are today or how they perished. I would agree with the others who criticized Wright for using his own religious struggles as a baseline to judge his subjects--I only became familiar with him by his book on the "Towers" and was not aware his time as a religion correspondent. And frankly I don't really care about his angst about whether to be an atheist or an agnostic. These individuals rise and fall was the main theme and was well done.
