Western civilization is becoming increasingly pluralistic,secularized, and biblically illiterate. Many people todayhave little sense of how their lives have benefited fromChristianity’s influence, often viewing the church withhostility or resentment.How Christianity Changed the World is a topicallyarranged Christian history for Christians and non-Christians. Grounded in solid research and written in apopular style, this book is both a helpful apologetic toolin talking with unbelievers and a source of evidence forwhy Christianity deserves credit for many of thehumane, social, scientific, and cultural advances in theWestern world in the last two thousand years.Photographs, timelines, and charts enhance eachchapter.This edition features questions for reflection anddiscussion for each chapter.

    " This book was written by a professor and unfortunately reads like a textbook. However, the premise is interesting. It shows all the ways in which Christianity permeates our Western world views. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justin Rose | 2/1/2013

    " This book is a great start to something that should see further editions with more editorial insite and perspective. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/25/2013

    " Contains great information as a resource and inspiration for Christians to be salt and light. Not particularly well-written and sections seemed slanted so that, while the information is true, it's presented in a way that those who are not Christians might not be persuaded. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dylan Bailey | 11/25/2012

    " Very informative. The best sections in this book are how Christianity influenced art and music. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frode | 11/1/2012

    " The early chapters were excellent. The latter few were not so good, but the book is a great read for Christians, well, Western non-Christians as well since they live in the culture which Christianity has influenced. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher | 8/9/2011

    " An excellent study that gives a panoramic view of how Christian thought permeates our society. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chris Krycho | 3/14/2011

    " Schmidt is repetitive and tends toward irrelevant polemics (and polemics unsupported by history no less). See my lengthier review at my old blog. "
