Summary

Is Christianity obsolete? Can an intelligent, educated person really believe the Bible? Or do the atheists have it right? In his new book, best-selling author Dinesh D'Souza ( What's So Great about America) 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.

"A masterpiece of inventiveness, compassion, and stylistic virtuosity." ( Jewish Spectator)
"Yoram Kaniuk is one of the most innovative, brilliant novelists in the Western World." ( New York Times)
"Whether it is due to the originality of his broken style, or the sensitivity of his characters�or his implacable lucidity, Kaniuk must be considered one of the great writers of our time." ( Le Monde)

Well done!

Where does What's So Great About Christianity rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

D'Souza is well read, on point, truth oriented and well written. I was built up by the way he fashions his arguments and states his points. Do not hesitate to jump into this book!

D'Souza delivers a haymaker

This is a great book to understand the current arguments being launched by atheist. One of the topics that I especially appreciated was D'Souza explaining the true story of Galileo, the "Martyr" of Science. This is much more complicate political situation than was ever historically portrayed to me. It was always a black and white story of suppression of scientific thought by religion. Before I was a Christian, I used the old Galileo story to marginalize faith to my Christian friends. "It is easier to believe a lie that one has heard a thousand times than to believe a fact that no one has heard before." - Anonymous

I whole-heartedly believe D'Souza the systematically elimination of religion from schools and public life has not made society better, but worse.

This was an excellent book and I highly recommend it
