Many people today would say that Christianity has done more harm than good to our world. Sharon James argues, however, in seeking to love their neighbour and reflect God’s moral character the followers of Jesus have had a largely positive impact on our society. James takes a number of areas – education, healthcare, justice, human dignity – and traces the ways in which these benefits have spread with the gospel.

I would commend this book to young people studying A level history as well as Christian teachers. It would also be a helpful read for anyone who wants to find out how the Bible, Christians and Christianity have impacted our world for the good. You will be greatly encouraged.
