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.
Sharon James has written several books, and has spoken in conferences in many parts of the world. She studied history at Cambridge University, theology at Toronto Baptist Seminary, and has a doctorate from the University of Wales. Sharon is married to Bill, Principal of London Seminary. They have two grown–up children. She works for The Christian Institute.
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.

In this brilliant book, Sharon James reclaims the ground and shows that nothing has done more for education, health, justice, the sanctity of life and dignity of women than this great Faith. A must–read ‘for such as time as this’.
