With the advent of the 21st century, several Christian writers have been described as this generation’s C. S. Lewis. Ravi Zacharias is one such notable figure, and yet another one has emerged recently.
Dinesh D’Souza has written an outstanding work, which could be classified as applied apologetics. What’s So Great About Christianity was written by D’Souza to answer the cacophony sounds of renowned atheists, like Christopher Hitchens, who are basically calling for an end to religion, namely Christianity.
In this well-organized presentation, the author considers the historical and contemporary impact the Christian movement has had on Western culture and the world in general. Written in a scholarly but simple language, this book could be used in church study groups and college Bible classes as well.
D’Souza is a native of India, and he serves as a resident scholar at the famous Hoover Institute. His earlier books were well-received by the reading public, and this one is apparently destined to follow their footsteps also.
