A survey of the various ways - often unrecognized and overlooked - whereby Christianity has profoundly and positively influenced the world. Formerly titled Under the Influence.

The pervasive pluralism, secularism and biblical illiteracy of contemporary Western culture has led to a widespread, uncritical acceptance of the notion that Christianity has been largely a negative force throughout history. The church of today is often perceived as irrelevant and moribund; with an historical legacy characterized by ignorance, ethical compromise, and oppression. There is little appreciation for the fact that Christianity is the foundation of what many people most value in cultural, political and social spheres.

How Christianity Changed the World is a topically arranged history of Christianity for Christians and non-Christians. Grounded in solid research and written in a popular style, this book makes a persuasive case for crediting Christianity as the source of many of the social, scientific, and cultural advances in the Western world in the last two thousand years. Photographs, timelines, and charts enhance each chapter. Formerly published as Under the Influence, this edition also features questions for reflection and discussion for each chapter. 448 pages, from Zondervan.

Publisher Description

Western civilization is becoming increasingly pluralistic, secularized, and biblically illiterate. Many people today have little sense of how their lives have benefited from Christianity's influence, often viewing the church with hostility or resentment. How Christianity Changed the World is a topically arranged Christian history for Christians and non- Christians. Grounded in solid research and written in a popular style, this book is both a helpful apologetic tool in talking with unbelievers and a source of evidence for why Christianity deserves credit for many of the humane, social, scientific, and cultural advances in the Western world in the last two thousand years. Photographs, timelines, and charts enhance each chapter. This edition features questions for reflection and discussion for each chapter.
