Is it reasonable to have faith in God? Can intelligent, educated people really believe what the Bible says? Or do the atheists have it righthas Christianity been disproven by science and discredited as a guide to morality? Best-selling author Dinesh D'Souza (The Enemy at Home; What's So Great about America) responds head-on to the anti-God arguments of prominent atheists such as Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens and defeats them on their own terms. What's So Great about Christianity provides believers with a straightforward tool kit for meeting the challenge of modern atheism and secularism; for nonbelievers, it offers a compelling apologetic that will challenge their assumptions and affirm that there really is something great about Christianity.
Dinesh DSouza, a former White House domestic policy analyst, is currently the Rishwain Research Scholar at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. He is the bestselling author of Whats So Great About America, Ronald Reagan: How an Ordinary Man Became an Extraordinary Leader, and many other books.
Is Christianity obsolete? Can an intelligent, educated person really believe the Bible?
Or are atheists correct? Does science disprove Christianity, debunk it as a force for good, and discredit it as a guide to morality?
In this groundbreaking book, bestselling author Dinesh DSouza is the first to tackle these questions and challenge atheists on their own secular turf. Approaching atheism with the skeptical eye usually reserved for religion, DSouza uses the latest scientific (among other) evidence to show why Christianity makes sense, why the atheists arguments are wrong, and why there really is something great about Christianity.
Whats So Great About Christianity explains:
Why Christianity explains what modern science tells us about the universe and our originsbetter than atheism does
How Christianity created the framework for modern science, so that Christianity and science are reconcilable, but atheism and science may not be
Why the alleged sins of Christianitythe Crusades, the Inquisition, the Galileo affairare vastly overblown
Why atheist regimes are responsible for the greatest mass murders of history
Why evolution does not threaten Christian belief, but actually supports the argument from design
Why atheists fear the Big Bang theory and the anthropic principle of the universe, which are keystones of modern astronomy and physics
How Christianity explains consciousness and free will, which atheists have to deny
By revealing the superiority of Christianity, DSouza raises the culture war debate to a whole new level. This book seeks to prove that Christianity and science are not at odds with each other; that atheism is philosophically, factually, and demographically bankrupt; and that a resurgent Christianity is the real wave of the future, and atheism a trend of the past.
