After reading the two other books by Thomas Cahill, The Gifts of the Jews, and How the Irish saved Civilization, I decided to read the Desire of the Everlasting Hills.
Pretty deep into it, and while I am finding that he is making some good points, I am finding that it doesn’t appear that he is Catholic. this surprised by, based on the previous writings I had read and the little I read in his biography.
Has anyone else read this and did you come to the same conclusion that I did?
To be honest, I am also a little put off by his frequent allusions to pop culture in a historical work.
