Description

Wasn't the South African Apartheid supported by Christians? Weren't the Crusades motivated by greed, but advocated by the church? Don't phoney television preachers manipulate viewers into donating money? William Edgar addresses these and other questions honestly, without attempting to dismiss or explain away their uncomfortable realities. He displays the good aspects of the church even more brilliantly through frankly and Biblically acknowledging the bad. If you have ever asked the question Does Christianity Really Work? this will be an interesting and enlightening read, whatever your prior convictions.

Endorsements

Edgar approaches difficult questions with pastoral care and theological wisdom. He acknowledges the ongoing reality of sin as the reason behind personal and corporate failure. He also points out the many instances of good accomplished by those with an explicitly Christian worldview - the abolition of slavery, health care, women's rights, art, music, social reform and much much more. The book is very accessible and easy to read and it contains many great stories which illustrate and support his basic argument. This book would be great to hand out to friends who were perhaps interested but skeptical about the claims of Christianity and the record of Christians.
