Product Description

Ever since terrorists shocked the world on September 11, 2001, the mainstream media has portrayed conservative Christians in frightening terms. Instead of distinquishing biblical Christians from Islamic extremists, liberal journalists lump them together. Having taken the same path as many liberal journalists in his years before becoming a Christian, Marvin Olasky understands this journalistic antipathy toward evangelicals. Yet he urges conservative Christians to stand their ground in the public square, and to do so in a way that points journalists to Christ. In this book Olasky examines the phenomenon of "Christophobia" in the mainstream media. He critiques the absurd equation of groups like the Taliban with conservative Christians. And he dispels illusions about Islam and its history that drive the current media coverage, showing how different Christian and Islamic conservatives really are. This book is for Christians who want to stand tall in the public square in spite of press attacks and for those who want to use those attacks as opportunities to communicate the truth.
