Availability: In stock

Dr. Schmidt, retired sociology professor, offers a topically arranged history/survey of the various ways--often unrecognized and overlooked--whereby Christianity has impacted the world, making the world a better place and enriching our everyday living. Grounded in solid research and written in a popular style, this book is both a helpful apologetic tool in talking with unbelievers and a source of evidence for why Christianity deserves credit for many of the humane, social, scientific, and cultural advances in the Western world in the last 2,000 years.

Dr. Schmidt, retired sociology professor, offers a topically arranged history/survey of the various ways--often unrecognized and overlooked--whereby Christianity has impacted the world, making the world a better place and enriching our everyday living. Grounded in solid research and written in a popular style, this book is both a helpful apologetic tool in talking with unbelievers and a source of evidence for why Christianity deserves credit for many of the humane, social, scientific, and cultural advances in the Western world in the last 2,000 years. Some of the often-unrecognized contributions of Christianity which he discusses include:
  • *   Bringing sanctity to human life by opposing the Greco-Roman practices of abortion, infanticide, child abandonment, and suicide
  • *   Raising the level of sexual morality and giving dignity to human life
  • *   Giving freedom and dignity to women
  • *   First founding hospitals in the 4th century
  • *   Originating universities and higher education
  • *   Bringing dignity and honor to labor
  • *   Spawning and developing modern science
  • *   First condemning slavery and inspiring its abolition
  • *   Producing major contributions to art, architecture, music, art and literature
