D'Souza presents the basic material examining Christianity in seven parts (the eight being the last two chapters). The first is "The Future of Christianity". The author lays out the current bump in popularity in militant atheism, but why it is really a long term loser. Despite atheism's best efforts, outside narrow intellectual circles religion is growing in most places in the world. In particular, Christianity is growing the fastest of all and in its future is bright. The second part looks at the historical rise and contributions of Christianity to Western Civilization and again demonstrates that many popular notions are simply wrong or fabrications.
The third part looks at science as a wonderful tool and a very poor faith. I particularly loved the chapter correcting the popular notion that Galileo was imprisoned by the Church because the Church was trying to suppress scientific truth. In fact, he was put under house arrest because he published a book he had promised not to publish and insulted the pope in a very egregious way.Read more ›
For example this morning I woke up at 5:00am so I had an hour before I had to get out of bed, I listened to how Christians were responsible for all the wars and killing from the Crusades, to witch hunts to Palestine, to "Hitler was Catholic and had deep seated hatred for Jews etc etc." Dinesh takes that one on and now I can throw off the yoke put on by my College Classes that made me feel guilty for what I believed.
Anyway, it is the best $17.00 I've ever spent, it's the modern version of C.S. Lewis's Mere Christianity.
Makes excellent philosophical argument for faith and religion in general, so it would be a good read for people of any faith.
For those who think religion is outdated or obsolete or worse, it will challenge them to re-examine their premises.
There are some solid remarks in his dissertation, and while much of it holds water, there are some minor issues off and on that I have problems with. Overall, this is a good book, and a good start in apologetics, if you're not already familiar with it.
I'm looking forward to seeing "2016: Obama's America". This guy will probably only get better with age.
