Publisher's 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.

Author hurts his own cause

As a believer and a scientist, I was deeply disappointed with this book. I can only comment on the first portion of it, since I could only take so much of his erroneous 'reasoning' before putting it down for good partway through.

In my opinion: the author either has a very poor grasp of modern evolutionary theory, or is intentionally misrepresenting it to make it easier to make his argument against it. Because he fails to grasp his 'opponents' arguments, his own defense is flawed and weak and will do little to assist anyone interested in debating a real scientist.

Perhaps it got better at the end, but this type of shoddy workmanship is not what makes Christianity Great. Fortunately, Christianity is great despite its many flawed adherents - because it relies on the ultimate truth of God.

A truly great book

This is a great book ... well written, well argumented, up to date with the latest developments, and the narration is first class ... a real joy to listen to. This book covers a comprehensive spectrum and tackles root issues head-on. The author takes aim at the latest anti-Christian best sellers and hits the mark every time. The arguments are easy to follow, understand, and remember. The author's take on Emmanuael Kant's theory of perception was a breakthrough for me. For me this is the best book in this field that I've had the priviledge to read/listen to (and I've read many).
