Description
In a world of facts and figures, can an intellectual have faith ? Is it possible to believe anything the Bible says? Yes, and one man will show you how. Amidst scientists' attempts to debunk Christianity's truths and atheists' assuming the Bible is a how-to-be-virtuous self-help book, bestselling author Dinesh D'Souza resolves to both answer the tough questions and challenge believers as well as doubters to search for the ultimate truths about theories of origin. D'Souza tackles subjects and events such as the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition, the Big Bang theory and Darwinism--everything you always pondered but never scrutinized, now placed under the proverbial microscope and studied thoroughly.

display_description

A provocative, enlightening, twenty-first-century successor to C. S. Lewis' Mere Christianity, Dinesh D'Souza's What's So Great about Christianity is the perfect book for the seeker, the skeptic, and the believer who wants to defend his faith.

Is Christianity obsolete? Can an intelligent, educated person really believe the Bible? Or do the atheists have it right? Here, bestselling author Dinesh D'Souza investigates both Christianity and atheism and their influences on culture to show why there is, indeed, something great about Christianity.

Challenging the assumptions of both believers and doubters, D'Souza demonstrates how Christianity created the framework for modern science and is compatible with the theory of evolution; how Christianity explains consciousness and free will, which atheists have to deny; and why, against all expectations, Christianity is the fastest-growing religion in the world, while secularism and atheism are on the decline. He argues that, ultimately, you can't have Western civilization without the Christianity that gave it birth.
