Publisher's Summary

What if all the bad news you've been hearing about Christians isn't true? Here are some facts that may surprise you: Evangelicals are more respected by society today than they were 20 years ago. Divorce rates of Christian couples are lower than those of nonbelievers. The percentage of young people who attend church has held steady over the past 20 years. All these statements are true, yet we’ve been told the opposite time and time again. Why is the church being misled? And what is the true state of Christianity in America today?

Sociologist Brad Wright shatters popular myths by sifting through the best available data. He reveals how Christians are doing when it comes to everything from marriage and morality to church growth and public perception. While not all the news is good, it turns out there is a wealth of encouraging information that we’re not being told. Get the truth behind the statistics you’ve been hearing and how the numbers are being manipulated, and discover what is really happening in American Christianity.

    "Good overall perspective"
    Any additional comments?

    I liked his non bias approach. It's very hard to do what he did coming from a religious background but I think he did a good job. Lots of facts and very general conclusion.

    "Title doesn't do the book justice"

    I was expecting another screed but from a right wing Christian perspective. After a second recommendation of the book I went ahead and listened. It was a rational, statistically based explaination of media both Christian and Secular. There is no sugar coating of shortcomings that do exist. It provides an excellent basis for critiqing statistics one hears from Christian leadership especially when they are trying to "sell" something be it a conference or a fear based call to action.
