In my field of international holistic development, well researched sociological studies like that which is done by Stark are invaluable to help develop a potential framework of ideas to engage people in dialogue regarding how they can work with God to bring positive changes into their society.
I think this is useful in our own society to contribute to informed dialogue with respect to positive change. In a time when the less-than-helpful actions of central governments and political manipulation are obvious to many, being well informed as to dynamics which shape life, such as the leadership / influence of the Messiah, AND having the opportunity for respectful, patient, well-conceived dialogue together will give us a better chance for positive change than our continued frustrating reliance on the federal government to help us.
Dr. Stark's work makes a significant contribution towards a well informed populace - both because of sound research and methodology, and because he writes in a manner which is understandable.
So, why haven't you heard this before? Probably because the vast majority of academic researchers in the humanities and social sciences are nonbelievers and they are very uncomfortable with these results. Stark had to really dig for them and he even did some of the research himself.
I find it fascinating that a faith - Christianity - that is so focused on the next life and on the spiritual world can bring so much good to this life and this natural world. I guess I shouldn't be surprised. The Bible contains many sound rules for living and many promises about our life here in this world. And Christ apparently spent a great deal of time healing the sick - making the world a better place. It only makes sense then that his followers would flourish and make the world a better place for others, as well.
This book should be required reading in every Adult Sunday School and every Christian high school and college in America. Certainly, young Christians will never read this in a secular school or university.
For me personally, as a Roman Catholic Deacon and thus, a member of the clergy, it was fun to see that my strongest held beliefs were really provable true.
This book supplies us with the provable answers we need in those arguments we have with the liberals who want to put down religion in any form. It's really fun to get scientific facts to throw out in those arguments just to see their faces turn red when they have no answers.
