Categories Theology

Why You Think the Way You DoLeslie Keeney recently reviewed Why You Think the Way You Do, a history of Christianity’s influence on the Western worldview. 

Below is an excerpt, and you can read the rest here.

"Beginning with the Greco-Roman world, Sunshine examines the pervasive philosophical assumptions that shaped the beliefs and habits of historical Western culture, then demonstrates how Christianity challenged those assumptions, eventually transforming them… 

'…When Western civilization embraced a robust vision of the image of God,' writes Sunshine 'we had our greatest successes; when we ignored it, we had our greatest failures….Christians should be at the forefront of the fight for human rights, and we should adamantly oppose racism, sexism, or any other affront to the common humanity we share.'

At just over 200 pages, Why You Think the Way You Do is engaging, insightful, and—oddly enough—inspiring. You’ll feel smarter for having read it and, perhaps, even want to walk out your door and change the world."
