BEWARE this is far from a scholarly biography.
This is far from what I had expected. I expected a biography of a brilliant
man but got an unapologetic evangelical polemic aimed at an elementary school student level. Monsieur Pascal would be rolling in dismay in his grave. It plays (to say the least) VERY fast and loose with the facts, at least as far as I can ascertain them from other sources. Pascal's famous "bet" does not fit well with this born again account of evangelical revelation and certainty. The truth of a terrifying Church/Inquisition demanding supremacy over all including reason peeks through the cracks in the lines here but historical truth is a largely a "left behind" casualty.
