Publisher's Description

Wasn't the South African Apartheid supported by Christians? Weren't the Crusades motivated by greed, but advocated by the church? Don't phoney television preachers manipulate viewers into donating money? William Edgar addresses these and other questions honestly, without attempting to dismiss or explain away their uncomfortable realities. He displays the good aspects of the church even more brilliantly through frankly and Biblically acknowledging the bad. If you have ever asked the question Does Christianity Really Work? this will be an interesting and enlightening read, whatever your prior convictions.

Editorial Reviews

Edgar approaches difficult questions with pastoral care and theological wisdom. He acknowledges the ongoing reality of sin as the reason behind personal and corporate failure. He also points out the many instances of good accomplished by those with an explicitly Christian worldview - the abolition of slavery, health care, women's rights, art, music, social reform and much much more. The book is very accessible and easy to read and it contains many great stories which illustrate and support his basic argument. This book would be great to hand out to friends who were perhaps interested but skeptical about the claims of Christianity and the record of Christians.

... addresses one of the main questions that sceptics and seekers have about Christianity - does it actually work? Looking at some issues from a positive perspective (the good that Christianity has done, and continues to do) and others from a negative (the alleged harm it is supposed to have brought), Edgar gives reasoned, evidenced and clear answers. This is a good primer for the seeker or the sceptic.

From now on, when skeptics ask, 'Where in the world has Christianity done any good,' we have a powerful and convincing reply ... Bill debunks myths and blows the dust off of little known historical facts about the impact of the Gospel in a hurting world ... a remarkable book
