Details: Product Description Many people today would say that Christianity has done more harm than good to our world. Sharon James argues, however, in seeking to love their neighbour and reflect God’s moral character the followers of Jesus have had a largely positive impact on our society. James takes a number of areas – education, healthcare, justice, human dignity – and traces the ways in which these benefits have spread with the gospel.   Chapter Headings: Freedom Religious Liberty Justice Protecting Life The Dignity of Women Philanthropy Healthcare Education for All The Creation Mandate and the Value of Work History: The Triumph of Christ Review … an encouragement to believers, and a challenge to unbelievers. (Peter Barnes) Christianity is good news to the world, despite critics’ charges that it is oppressive and outmoded. Sharon James skilfully marshals Scripture, church history, and cultural analysis to set the record straight, showing the revolutionary impact of Jesus Christ on humanity. Buy five copies and give them to friends who care about the free exchange of ideas. (John Folmar) … if you’ve been influenced to believe that the Christian gospel is a virulent intellectual infection that should be eradicated, that it robs people of joy and freedom, that it oppresses women and makes its heavenly–minded adherents of little earthly good, then you very much need to read this book. (Jon Bloom) This brilliant little book … beautifully demonstrates the way that all that we treasure in Western civilisation – such as human rights, equality under the law, democratic government, science, healthcare, education and literature – has its roots in a Christian worldview which values human beings as special creations made in the image of God who are called by God to demonstrate His justice, creativity and character.  (Peter Saunders) I would commend this book to young people studying A level history as well as Christian teachers. It would also be a helpful read for anyone who wants to find out how the Bible, Christians and Christianity have impacted our world for the good. You will be greatly encouraged. (Naomi Oliver) In this brilliant book, Sharon James reclaims the ground and shows that nothing has done more for education, health, justice, the sanctity of life and dignity of women than this great Faith. A must–read ‘for such as time as this’. (Alun Ebenezer) … skilfully combines historical research, biblical ethics and contemporary analysis to prove that the gospel really is good news for all people! (Elizabeth McQuoid) … an engaging read and leaves you wanting more … (Richard Turnbull) About the Author Sharon James has written several books, and has spoken in conferences in many parts of the world. She studied history at Cambridge University, theology at Toronto Baptist Seminary, and has a doctorate from the University of Wales. Sharon is married to Bill, Principal of London Seminary. They have two grown–up children. She works for The Christian Institute.
