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.

John Folmar, Senior Pastor, United Christian Church of Dubai

This brilliant little book … beautifully demonstrates the way that all that we treasure in Western civilisation – such as human rights, equality under the law, democratic government, science, healthcare, education and literature – has its roots in a Christian worldview which values human beings as special creations made in the image of God who are called by God to demonstrate His justice, creativity and character.
