A provocative, enlightening, twenty-first-century successor to C. S. Lewis Mere Christianity, Dinesh D’Souza’s What’s So Great about Christianity is the perfect book for the seeker, the skeptic, and the believer who wants to defend his faith.

Is Christianity obsolete? Can an intelligent, educated person really believe the Bible? Or do the atheists have it right? Here, bestselling author Dinesh DSouza investigates both Christianity and atheism and their influences on culture to show why there is, indeed, something great about Christianity.

Challenging the assumptions of both believers and doubters, D’Souza demonstrates how Christianity created the framework for modern science and is compatible with the theory of evolution; how Christianity explains consciousness and free will, which atheists have to deny; and why, against all expectations, Christianity is the fastest-growing religion in the world, while secularism and atheism are on the decline. He argues that, ultimately, you can't have Western civilization without the Christianity that gave it birth.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Those who believe in God are at present being subjected to a barrage of atheist propaganda, directed particularly at Christianity. What’s So Great About Christianity is a much-needed response to this offensive. It is wide-ranging, specific, well researched, and dependably accurate. It will be of immense value to all those who wish to defend and uphold the Christian case.”

    Paul Johnson, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Sharp and poignant observations on…freedom and opportunity.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “Responding to the current epidemic of atheist manifestos, Dinesh D’Souza applies just the right balm for the troubled soul. Assembling arguments from history, philosophy, theology, and science—yes, science!—he builds a modern and compelling case for faith in a loving God. If you’re seeking the truth about God, the universe, and the meaning of life, this is a great place to look.”

    Francis Collins, director of the Human Genome Institute

  • “This is a timely, important, and illuminating work, scholarly in tone, though accessible to a general audience. Agnostics and atheists will not be able to ignore this challenge.”

    Daniel Robinson, Oxford University

  • “With scholarship and eloquence that reminds me of C. S. Lewis, Dinesh D’Souza addresses the urgent questions of our time, such as ‘Is Christianity believable in the face of the discoveries of modern science and modern scholarship?’ His answer is a resounding yes. More than a decisive refutation of atheist attacks, this is a powerful, affirming, genuinely exciting argument for Christianity. You may want to carry this one around with you.”

    Reverend Robert H. Schuller

  • A New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carmon | 2/16/2014

    " I'm reading this slowly, doing something I learned to do when reading a book for information: writing a synopsis of each page at the top of the page, then I can go back over that to reinforce what I read. I do not agree with some of his optimism which is a little too ecumenical (he's Roman Catholic) but he does a good job of showing how Christianity benefits the world, and I agree with him that we have much to be optimist about in that Christianity is growing by leaps and bounds in certain parts of the world, such as South America and China, even as it declines in the West. "

    " Good book. It's very broad. Good intro great for the layman wanting to begin their study of defending the christian faith. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doug | 2/7/2014

    " This book was alot better than I expected. It was well written and interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 A.J. | 1/28/2014

    " Good book in regards to a lot of the arguments about evolution versus intelligent design. I just do not care for the author's politics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kent | 1/20/2014

    " Heard a speech by Dinesh and loved it. Just starting this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon Zink | 1/17/2014

    " An amazing book. Although Dinesh D'Souza is a Christian, he is well versed in history, philosophy, science, and the old classics as well; and he makes his points using arguments from various secular fields. His careful thinking and clear writing clears up many dilemmas surrounding Christianity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Taylor | 12/14/2013

    " I liked it for the most part. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mugsymkelly | 10/1/2013

    " I previously read this book and recently picked it up to review. I love Diesh D'Souza's points and validation of Christianity as an intellectual. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glen | 9/22/2013

    " Good logical rebuttal to Athiest writers of our day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric Gendreau | 6/3/2013

    " A pretty technical book, but for those that like the technical stuff it is a very interesting book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 3/25/2013

    " Another book I really enjoyed but didn't finish before I had to take it back to the library. I read a chapter and then read a couple of fiction books as is often my habit with nonfiction. I want to read the rest of this so I may actually have to buy it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Cindrich | 8/23/2012

    " He wrote this after the surge of 'new atheism' books came out a few years ago so responds to at least some of the arguments made by Hitchens, Dawkins, etc. What are the chances I can also finish this before the starting bell rings for the book group? (sound of mocking laughter) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marty Peterman | 3/19/2012

    " Great to see the influence of Christian culture in present day. Further, very interesting to read apologetics that are not self-referential or using circular reasoning. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Jones | 12/7/2011

    " GREAT book. I actually was able to meet Dinesh and was more impressed in person! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ronald Kohlin | 7/2/2011

    " A very good discussion of the merits of the Christian faith. I don't agree with all the tenets of Mr. D'Souza's understanding (he holds to evolution as an integral part of God's plan) but overall he points out how much Judaism and Christianity have benefited the human race over the years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 4/21/2011

    " I thought this was a great book, meaty read. Really good for those who may or may not be Christian brings more of the science into it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josh | 3/11/2011

    " I read this book while I was researching Christian apologetics in order to write my own book. But Dinesh, while not hitting every point, wrote a book that was good enough that I decided there was no need for me to write my own. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LJh* | 3/9/2011

    " I liked it for the most part. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jonathan | 2/11/2011

    " What's so great about this book? Not too much. He has some good insights here and there, but there are much better responses to the New Atheists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Raul | 1/3/2011

    " An excellent critique of the 'New Atheism'. From the scientific worldview to the philosophical, Mr. D'Souza does an outstanding job weighing the arguments, analyzes and answers them. This is a 'must-have' apologetic work in any Christians' tool kit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel | 11/9/2010

    " A great book, Dinesh discusses some of the biggest questions about Christianity (ranging from humanity to science) and gives both very honest and intellectual answers. If you like "the reason for God", then you should like this one as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 10/13/2010

    " Good, rational arguments he's got here. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debbi | 9/6/2010

    " I think that D'Souza would have had a better book if he had just kept to the Atheistic arguments against Christianity and taken them head on. Instead he wanted to give us a bit of a history lesson too, which I think falls short.

    2/5 stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike | 7/7/2010

    " Well done sir, he accomplishes all he set out to do in a relatively concise way. He makes excellent points without engaging other writers in pointless bickering or rambling too far in one direction. "
