A provocative, enlightening, twenty-first-century successor to C. S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity, Dinesh D’Souza’s What’s So Great about Christianity is the perfect book for the seeker, the skeptic, and the believer who wants to defend his faith. Is Christianity obsolete? Can an intelligent, educated person really believe the Bible? Or do the atheists have it right? Here, bestselling author Dinesh D’Souza 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Those who believe in God are at present being subjected to a barrage of atheist propaganda, directed particularly at Christianity. What’s So Great About Christianity is a much-needed response to this offensive. It is wide-ranging, specific, well researched, and dependably accurate. It will be of immense value to all those who wish to defend and uphold the Christian case.” Paul Johnson, New York Times bestselling author
“Sharp and poignant observations on…freedom and opportunity.” Wall Street Journal
“Responding to the current epidemic of atheist manifestos, Dinesh D’Souza applies just the right balm for the troubled soul. Assembling arguments from history, philosophy, theology, and science—yes, science!—he builds a modern and compelling case for faith in a loving God. If you’re seeking the truth about God, the universe, and the meaning of life, this is a great place to look.” Francis Collins, director of the Human Genome Institute
“This is a timely, important, and illuminating work, scholarly in tone, though accessible to a general audience. Agnostics and atheists will not be able to ignore this challenge.” Daniel Robinson, Oxford University
“With scholarship and eloquence that reminds me of C. S. Lewis, Dinesh D’Souza addresses the urgent questions of our time, such as ‘Is Christianity believable in the face of the discoveries of modern science and modern scholarship?’ His answer is a resounding yes. More than a decisive refutation of atheist attacks, this is a powerful, affirming, genuinely exciting argument for Christianity. You may want to carry this one around with you.” Reverend Robert H. Schuller
