"Dover Beach is not about to be submerged. But a tide has turned, and boats at anchor now point the other way."

     Jonathan Clark on Roger Scruton's In the soul of the world (Princeton, NJ:  Princeton University Press, 2014), in "Books of the year:  seventy-four writers make their selections from around the world," Times literary supplement no. 5826 (November 28, 2014):  9.  According to Clark, Scruton is, if not an atheist, "a secularist who cannot resist writing about God".
