Title of Chapter 1 ? Dec 8 1999
By ralph-1@webtv.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The original (Agora 1944 pub) had chapter 1 as Why Do We Not Bomb Rome? As Wells wrote it. In all of the other publications I noted that Chapter 1 was relocated as the last chapter 23. This changes the overall impression of the book as Wells originally wrote it. The first time reader should read the Agora version first to get the authors real meaning. Wells was never shy and NEVER did he beat around the bush, as this change made it appear.

An emotionally charged scathing indictment of Catholicism March 18 1999
By apagdon@berkely.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Crux Ansata is a sometimes scholarly, sometimes emotional indictment of the Roman Catholic Church. Drawing on theological history, Wells builds a case against the Church for various reasons, predominantly political. All of this leads up to a final chapter entitled, "Why Do We Not Bomb Rome?" It is the work of a man passionately crusading against his own conceptions of ignorance, and while convincing at times, I couldn't help but wonder while reading it, "What did the nuns do to him"? Written towards the end of Wells's career when he became exceedingly bitter and critical of modern society.
