The Wordy Shipmates

I'm in the process of reading Sarah Vowell's The Wordy Shipmates... if you're easily offended by liberal viewpoints and/or incisive analysis of American Christianity, you'll probably want to avoid this book like the plague.

OTOH, she's a great writer and has some very thought-provoking things to say. For example:
I will also say that readers who squirm at microscopic theological differences might be unsuited to read a book about seventeenth century Christians. Or, for that matter, a newspaper.
