        I haven't read Ruse's book but would just make one point about the title
    which ought to be obvious: The question "Can a Z-ian be a Christian?",
    where Z stands for anyone or thing, must for Christians be in the negative
    if "being a Z-ian" implies the same degree of commitment to or trust in Z
    that "being a Christian" does for Christ.
