Opening Sentence: What's So Great About Christianity


Christians are called upon to be "contenders" for their faith.
-- from the author's Preface to What's So Great About Christianity by Dinesh D'Souza.

God has come back to life.

-- from the first chapter, "The Twilight of Atheism: The Global Triumph of Christianity."

This is a very good book.  D'Souza makes a case for religion in general and Christianity in particular, arguing from scientific, historical, and (mostly) philosophical positions. 

I found the audio version at the library and didn't really know what to expect.   I definitely didn't expect it to be a philosophy book.  I find myself rewinding quite a bit, but it is worth it to understand his arguments.

I wish I could agree with the author's optimism that Christianity is triumphing over atheism. Perhaps in concept. But the number of atheists seems to be growing exponentially.
