One thought on “What's So Great About Christianity

  1. Kevan

    I worry this book might be harmful than positive But let s start with the stuff that was terrific 1 A beautiful effort to re unite Christian thinking with scientific thinking There are not many contemporary Christians who enjoy endorsing science, but D Souza welcomes science as a natural fit within the Christian worldview It s a restoration that is needed Very refreshing 2 When his chapters dwell on history, they are very engaging learning about Copernicus, Galileo, and even some early shifts t [...]

  2. David

    This is one Christian s response to the recent onslaught of atheistic anti Christian literature D Souza answers their attacks eloquently, showing how religion is triumphing globally over atheism, how Western culture, including the scientific method, is thoroughly indebted to Christianity, how Christian teachings are supported by science, and how atheist attacks against Christianity don t hold up philosophically I found this eye opening and intriguing It s a good tool for anyone seeking an answer [...]

  3. Maxwell

    rife with misconceptions and assumptions, this book is not much information about anything of a book about the author s opinion than facts, it is sheer propaganda what makes me sad about this book is that i can see the angle that this brand of christian is coming from, and it sees wrong conclusions using faulty logic for example, dinesh d souza claims that he understands darwinian evolution, but reading his take on it is laughable he claims that darwinian evolution actually SUPPORTS the argumen [...]

  4. Larry

    I am a devoted follower of Jesus and firmly believe he is the way, the truth and the life, but d souza is, in my opinion, trying to exploit a right wing market to sell books by putting out poorly researched, very biased, one sided works designed to be self congratulatory to a particular group His sense of history is so skewed that a high school teacher would give him a D Open minded, fair and balanced, it is not.

  5. John

    Of the recent books I ve read on Christian apologetics, this is the one that I d most like friends who are skeptics or doubters to read It s written in clear, conversational, persuasive and sometimes witty prose If you are confronted by a relativist who insists that all morality is relative, go ahead and punch him in the face The chapter on evolution challenged my thinking on that topic.I can t say that I understood everything in this book Anselm s argument for the existence of God is a bit beyo [...]

    Dinesh D Souza s What s So Great About Christianity is the book I want to have inside my mind when I encounter a confirmed atheist Of course I could never sort through my cluttered thoughts or dig out just the right argument when needed anyway, so it doesn t matter I suppose And arguments don t win souls anyway, for that we need the Love of God However, it is still good to know what one s critics are saying So I loved this book, enjoying Mr D Souza s skillful handling of many modern atheistic ob [...]

  7. Jeremy Hurren

    Meh I read this because I had recently read The God Delusion and wanted to see what this sort of rebuttal had to say I also D Souza and Christopher Hitchens debate at a conference over the summer and wanted to hear what this book had to say Ultimately, I thought that this book was just as uncompelling as was the Dawkins book The arguments are mildly interesting to think about, but there seemed to be many points either forgotten or left out In both books, I found myself wanting to present the arg [...]

  8. Justin

    I just skimmed through this at the library, but I don t think I missed much because I ve encountered every idea here in other books The only argument I found somewhat convincing is the anthropic principle, which Stephen Hawking elucidated adeptly inA Brief History of Time However, while I believe it s possible if not necessarily probable that the laws of physics were created in order to sustain life, everything we know about evolution, astronomy, and science in general suggests that human being [...]

  9. Tiffany

    Didn t agree with every point, but it s a great comeback to Hitchens, Dawkins and the rest of the atheists who have published books in the past few years What I liked most is that he takes the atheists primary argument tool reason and turns it right back on them to show the limits of their arguments, but without being arrogant or assuming The overall message could be summed up as Faith is not as unreasonable as some would have you believe in fact, it s the reasonable option.

  10. Becky

    I was very disappointed in this book I was looking forward to some solid reasoning on the positive points of Christianity What I read were mostly arguments trying to prove that atheists are wrong In addition, many of his arguments were contradictory and he made many blanket statements without any basis of fact The book should have been titled instead, What s So Bad About Atheists.

  11. Lee Harmon

    I smiled at D Sousa s portrayal of liberal Christians readers know me as one Instead of being the church s missionaries to the world, they have become the world s missionaries to the church They devote their moral energies to trying to make the church democratic, to assure equal rights for women, to legitimize homosexual marriage, and so on Liberal Christians are distinguished by how much intellectual and moral ground they concede to the adversaries of Christianity Guilty as charged.So D Sousa [...]

  12. Skylar Burris

    This is one of the best modern Christian apologetics I have read, because it directly addresses the specific concerns of atheists and secularists by drawing evidence and reasoning from a variety of fields including science, history, literature, and philosophy The tone is fairly moderate, and the book is well reasoned For me, the chapters on the origin of modern science which was made possible by and grew out of Christianity were the most intriguing I would have liked detail in the arguments, an [...]

  13. Eric

    According to D Souza, atheists choose atheism because they are unrepentant sexual deviants who need to eliminate punishment for fornication and abortion The atheist seeks to get rid of moral judgement by getting rid of the judge 272.Religion requires adherence, undermines individuality, and promises a set of rules for the conscience Atheism requires individuality, undermines indoctrination, and provides the perfect foundation for consideration of conscience Which sounds humanizing to you

  14. Jon

    The book could use one revision for concision, but it really is a brilliant and substantive response to Dawkins and Hitchens Hitchens himself said in one debate he had with D Souza that D Souza is one of the formidable opponents he s ever faced That s high praise, coming from Hitchens.Several of the chapters are right on par with C.S Lewis.

  15. Mikki

    This book had good arguments, but the tone of the author was completely lacking in humility, which made it difficult for me to read I agree with his view against atheism, but did not appreciate his personal slanders and assigning of motives to people he speaks against.

  16. Sheryl Tribble

    Dinesh D Souza drives me crazy He s clearly a bright fellow, and when he knows his subject he s fascinating, but he has a bad habit of dismissing some concepts out of hand, which means that the depth of his ignorance is sometimes astonishing I suppose we all are guilty of that, but what s annoying is that he has no interest in issues sometimes quite close to his main subject, meaning he can go from profound to just plain ol ignorant in the space of a sentence.I don t mind reading stuff I disagre [...]

  17. Hal Mahaffey

    I have read several of the anti religious books that have appeared in recent years and felt it would be interesting to give the other side a crack at it Valerie had this book she likes the author from the library and I started reading it I was honestly impressed, so I got it used from.There are excellent chapters on why it s no slam dunk that there isn t a Creator The Big Bang is hardly a substitute, as one is still left with the question so what happened before the Big Bang Eventually science s [...]

  18. ShareStories

    I am reading this book via CD many CDs, as it turns out It is a thorough refutation of atheist Richard Dawkins and his ilk A favorite point D Souza makes so far is this The very nature of faith means that we will doubt If we knew with complete certainty, by all available empirical evidence that there was a God, then we would not need faith In this, we share our doubt, our not knowing with agnostics Lord, I believe help thou my unbelief Mark 9 24 But, believers use faith to get us beyond where re [...]

  19. Mike Horne

    Not as good as Tell Me Why or Mere Christianity He talks about Kant and Hume, but I don t think he is giving a full explanation of their ideas And a weird citation from Leo Strauss If I was an atheist, I don t think I would find this convincing as an argument for the God of Christianity I found an informative negative reviewfidels library moder

  20. Rusty

    A fascinating read, with views on not only Christianity, but religion as a whole A definite must read for anyone who wants to rebut that athiest at the office.

  21. Tyler J. Collins

    I was intrigued by the argumentation about the history of Christianity and D Souza s defense of religion as a whole as opposed to atheism, as well as his other critiques of atheism These were very convincing to me I was worried about several aspects of the beliefs that he espoused about Christianity, however, as he made the claim that evolution was compatible with the Genesis account without sufficiently providing evidence that this is true and considering the theological implications of this be [...]

  22. John

    The popularity of such New Atheist writers as Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett, and the like has spawned a slew of apologetics books from intellectual Christian writers seeking to promote rational arguments that refute the torrents of criticisms and attacks currently being leveled against traditional Christianity Some books do a really good job of this unfortunately, WHAT S SO GREAT ABOUT CHRISTIANITY isn t one of those The first problem is that the title doesn t [...]

  23. Elari

    Dinesh D Souza was the man I liked the least in the debate Science Refutes God So why did I choose to read his book Maybe because I try to understand the people and concepts that go against my own convictions Or maybe because, on a subconscious Thanatotic level, I occasionally long for the tachycardia I get from reading badly written books.I thought I d list the fallacies I encountered, but they were so numerous that I had to kill the idea in the womb you have just caused an abortion, Dinesh Ins [...]

  24. Ted

    Pretty good apologetics He gets a little lost in the weeds when he talks about philosophy and the book is a little self congratulating at times He makes a strong case for rejoining Christianity and scientific thinking But on the whole the book stays focused on the New Atheist trinity of Dawkins, Hitchens, and Harris He does a good job of defending the faith but the I listen to what these three have to say I m surprised they ve become so influential and are considered a threat to the church Most [...]

  25. Bear

    Read Booklady s review and add my endorsement Up front, I have a Christian faith and belief I am not into conflict with non believers The same can be said for Believers as well Who I do have conflict with are those who try to tell me I m wrong and then decide my fate for me, or those who would have me convert to their particular religious fervor du jour, or be killed you know what I m saying here As long as you are willing to listen to me as I am to you without judgment, then we can discourse I [...]

  26. Becky Safarik

    After hearing D Souza speak in an IQ2 debate, where the premise was Science Refutes God , I was looking forward to reading his book as his pro God arguments in the debate were the most reasonable I d heard from a Christian source As a non Christian, I have been mystified by the Christian faith and wanted to hear a reasonable discussion that would satisfy my scientific understanding of the world while explaining Christianity.I appreciated his initial sentiments This is also a book for atheists, o [...]

  27. Adam

    While in a very few instances the rhetorical underpinnings of this book get a bit wobbly, on the whole it is an impressive synthesis of theological and philosophical arguments drawing on the long history of Western thought and presents a cogent, erudite yet readable, and relatively comprehensive description of the Christian position in the 21st century I do not expect the book to convince militant atheists, and it will offend at least two types of Christians those who cannot allow any discussion [...]

  28. Joseph

    I feel a little generous giving D Souza 4 stars for this book It was quite an interesting read and didn t drag, which I suppose is always a plus He handles the so called rational and scientific atheists superbly and demonstrates the clear fallibility of their arguments Anyone who wishes to know why atheism is just as impoverished as much of contemporary Christianity ought to read this book If anything, D Souza convinces us not to fall for the atheists argument of scientific superiority, and he d [...]

  29. Dave Johnson

    it s actually quite funny to read reviews of this book it s obvious that there are quite a few people giving this a bad review, not because of the content, but because of the subject, and mostly because they disagree with the subject before even reading critics aside, this book is really great granted, i m a Christian, so i agree with the topic already, but D Souza does such a great job at answering the questions and accusations of militant atheism and darwinism so soundly that it often made me [...]

  30. Donald

    Excellent book Well written and thoughtful, this book makes the case for how important Christianity is to western civilization, going to the extent to say that it is the basis of western civilization, and warns that if society moves away from Christianity then it is in danger of collapsing Not only that, but the book takes on the atheist points of view on a variety of subjects, including science and morality, to show that the atheist viewpoint offers little to explain reality, which is the oppos [...]
