That is why the book starts by addressing fundamental heresies like '' Jesus never existed '' and '' There is no God'' .Coren answers the question of wither there is any evidence that Jesus existed with '' There is , and plenty of it ''.He cities the early Historians from the first and second century . Pagans , Jews and Christians ,and argues that pagans and jews , who were not Christian and in many cases anti-christian, never doubted the existence of Jesus .
The interdiction of the book itself was an eye opening for me ,where the author shows the hypocrisy of the left media in the case of Andres behring breivik , for example , when he was called a right wing fundamentalist christian , even though he is a Freemason , supporter of gay Marriage , and do not have a relationship with God or Jesus , which have nothing to do with Fundamental Christianity! Yet the media started to use his blond hair and blue eyes to say that he is a '' Christian Fundamentalist'' and ignoring all the other facts. in another case , Coren shows the tragedy , of Nadia eweida , who was suspended from her job by the British Airways for wearing a small cross ,when other people such as Sikhs and Muslims wear their symbols and it's okay with the same company !.Read more ›
Coren shreds their arguments.
Anyone with a brain will relish the chapter on Dan Brown, but then, no one with a brain would have bought a word he wrote.
I especially enjoyed the chapter on Hitler. Coren found that Hitler wrote in July 1941 "National Socialism and religion cannot exist together. The heaviest blow that ever struck humanity was the coming of Christianity" (p 108).
Another rant by Hitler "Christianity is an invention of sick brains" (p 110)
The truth is that three years before Hitler was elected chancellor, Catholics were told that anyone who became a Nazi or who wore the Nazi uniform or flew the swastika would not be given the Eucharist. That's right. They were forbidden the sacraments, just as today politicians who promote abortion are denied the Eucharist. Documents in the Vatican show that the Nazis later pleaded for this excommunication to be removed.
The request was denied.
In the election that swept Hitler to power, the two Catholic areas of the country, Bavaria and the Rhineland, voted against, not for, Hitler. Which should surely not surprise anyone. Christianity, especially Catholicism, was being branded by the Nazis as the inheritor of the 'slave' religion Judaism.
The Nazis not only hated Catholicism, they actively promoted the occult and paganism. Nazis proclaimed the triumph of the strong, the Nietzschean superman, over the weak--the exact opposite of Christianity.Read more ›
I appreciated Coren's discussion of choice and the 'heresy' that because bad things happen, and especially to good people, God cannot exist. As Coren eloquently states, 'this reveals a fundamental misunderstanding of God's involvement and intervention in history, and -- again -- of what choice is all about." God is love and for love to be true, choice to love him is essential. Love cannot be forced.
A recommended read. Coren touches the other well known charges (e.g. the Bible supports slavery, the Catholic Church did little to help the Jews during the Holocaust, etc). These charges are either misunderstood or facts are completely ignored in order for the secularist to make his argument. Coren's final chapter is a synopsis of the conservative approach to life and is a well thought out and passionate argument for Christian values in today's society.
