The Undercover RevolutionPaula Hill, via The Good Book Stall
This is a small book (just over 100 pages long), and as such it would have been hard for it to really do justice to its subtitle. Instead, the author focuses on the background and lifestyles of several prominent literary figures from the 19th century whose writings reflect their anti-Christian belief, including Robert Louis Stevenson, George Bernard Shaw and Thomas Hardy. There is no real analysis of their work, and while it may well be true that their books had an influence on society this is not demonstrated within the text. Given that the books that they wrote were set school books for many people, the reader is expected to regard these authors in a very different light from the one that they have grown up with.
The second half of the book, which is in fact the last chapter, takes a very different line. The author demonstrates that the Bible accounts cannot be fiction and makes a very clear presentation of the gospel. To my mind this chapter could stand alone as a pamphlet, rather than being tacked onto the end of the book.
There can be no doubt that fiction writing in Britain has changed enormously over the last century, but this book doesn’t really tell us why, nor does it consider other influences that have also been at work.
