IS GOD DYING?
That's what some people think and want. They say Christian beliefs and our way of life aren't relevant anymore. But what critics and even many churchgoers don't realize is the life-changing importance of Christianity.
Showing how the world would be a dark place without Christianity, Unimaginable guides you through the halls of history to see how Jesus' teachings dramatically changed our world and continue to be the most powerful force for good today. Learn . . .
· How Christianity has stood against the evils of slavery (more than once), racism, eugenics, and injustices toward women and children
· Why freedom as a universal value and modern education and legal systems owe much to Christianity
· How Christians throughout the ages have demonstrated the value of human life by sacrificially caring for the sick, handicapped, marginalized, and dying
· How people of faith are extending God's kingdom through charities, social justice efforts, mental health initiatives, and other profound ways
This provocative and enlightening book is for anyone concerned about where our world is heading.
