Inconvenient to whom?
Inconvenient Opinions is an attempt to do some fresh thinking on a lot of topics--historical, religious, and miscellaneous. But to whom will these ideas be inconvenient? Not to the author, who is always happy as a clam.
To the church? To his family? To authorities? Nope, nope, and nope.
Then to whom will these ideas be inconvenient?
Perhaps: to people who care about ideas, and who know that good ideas call forth an active response on the part of the hearer. So let's hope that the ideas in this book are good, and that the reader is inconvenienced in a useful way.
