2020 Australian Christian Book of the Year Winner

Christianity, depending on who you ask, is either a scourge on our society, narrow, delusive, and inevitably producing hatred and violence; or the foundation of some of the best elements of our culture and a continued source of hope, comfort to those in need, and moral inspiration.

Are we talking about the same people here?

Are we looking at the same history?

Crusades, witch hunts, slavery, colonialism, child abuse... the history of the church offers plenty of ammunition to its critics. And on the other hand: charity, human rights, abolition, non-violent resistance, literacy and education.

In For the Love of God, Natasha Moore confronts the worst of what Christians have done, and also traces the origins of some of the things we like best about our culture back to the influence of Jesus.

Covering episodes from the Spanish Inquisition to Martin Luther King Jr, Florence Nightingale to the "humility revolution", this book offers an accessible but wide-ranging introduction to the good, the bad, the ugly - and the unexpected - when it comes to the impact Christianity has had on the world we live in.
