"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".
