What Our World Would Be Like Without Christianity
By Jeremiah J. Johnston
A world without Christianity is not a pleasant thought. After reading this book you will understand just how bad this world could be had Christ not come, had Christianity not started. The book is divided into three parts that cover the world before Christianity, the world without Christianity and the world with Christianity. The book is very much a history of the world and shows how things were, are or could have been. It shows how Christianity affected the world history and how the world may have been without Christianity giving guidance. There are stories of past leaders and famous writers that had great influence on people and what happen in the world. Some of those covered are Caesar, Hitler, Lenin and others and how their influence was received by the world and how it almost destroyed the world. The third part covers Christ and the start of the church and how that influenced what happen in the world.
If you like books about history, you will like this book. I found many facts that were helpful and added to my understanding of why some things happened. The book makes a great reference book for young and old and could help in Bible Studies or discussions. In the same way as books about culture helps, this one will be a big help in understanding why thing have happen and why Christianity is important to all, even if they don’t believe.
A quote from the book;
“Atheist regimes, whether fascist or socialist. Whether Nazi or Communist, are morally blind. This hardly occasions surprise. After all, once God has been removed, all that is left is the law of the jungle.”
