Book Review of Taming the Violence of Faith by Jay Stuart Snelson
In the 200s B.C. it was Archimedes. In the 1500s-1600s it was Galileo Galilei. In 1665-1666 it was Isaac Newton. In the 1800s it was Michael Faraday, Gregor Mendel and James Clerk Maxwell. In the 1900s it was Albert Einstein and Max Planck. All of these innovators have become household words around the world. They and many others have contributed a wealth of information to mankind that has raised the standard of living for the masses never even imagined before such men existed. Each of them contributed a piece of the puzzle to the mysteries of the universe that added to the integration of the physical and biological sciences. What about the social sciences?
In his book, Taming the Violence of Faith, Jay Stuart Snelson has taken the subject of sociology to new heights by innovating a brilliant integration that can solve the problems of society which have previously been thought of as being unsolvable. His use of syllogisms is beyond reproach as he develops, finally, a true Science of Sociology. Questions and conflicts that previously had no solutions have been solved. In the process of Snelson’s treatise, a well-organized history lesson is presented that integrates the failings of the past with his science of the present. He demonstrates the causes and effects of the many wars, riots, thefts, and inhumanities of men towards each other over the past centuries and which continue to this day. You’ll find that there is a common denominator behind most of the ills of society.
Historically, it has been demonstrated that the more important and significant the new idea, the more it has been overlooked at the time of its innovation. The Snelson Integration must not become just another disregarded theory. The only thing his work can accomplish is to change the world for the better. It’s a must reading for atheists and theists, for men and women, for the left and the right, for Jews, Gentiles and Muslims, for the uneducated and the educated and especially for you, the reader. Once you read it you will find it difficult not to recommend it to your friends and family with superlative enthusiasm.
