Creation Centered in Christ by Henry Grattan Guinness

“The triumph of Christianity over Paganism was followed by the rise of Free Thought in the Middle Ages, and the return to the primitive faith which characterized the Reformation was succeeded by the reactionary wave of infidelity which rolled over Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries.” - H Grattan Guinness from “Faith and Free Thought”
