Wednesday Giveaway - How Christianity Changed the World

Categories Theology

How Christianity Changed the WorldHas Christianity shaped Western culture for the better? 

In this week’s giveaway, How Christianity Changed the World, Alvin J. Schmidt makes the case that the West has indeed benefited from its Christian heritage in many ways, and that society is often simply unaware of this history.

From hospitals to higher education, Schmidt describes how the influence of Christianity can been seen in the stories of many of the
humane, social, scientific, and cultural advances in the Western world in the last two thousand years.

As Western civilization becomes increasingly pluralistic and secularized, this book serves as a reminder that, despite failures and dark moments in the story, Christianity has done much to transform the world for God's glory and the benefit of the people of their day-and-age.
