Christendom has been getting some bad press lately. Not least from me. But is that the whole story or is it a necessary correction?
As always the answer is both/and. If you like the case for the positive influence of Christianity in the world have a look at “What Has Christianity Ever Done for Us?: How It Shaped the Modern World” (Jonathan Hill)
David Mays has a handy summary here. Hopefully the summary will whet your appetite to read the book. I've ordered my copy.
