Very helpful, as well as engaging.

If you could sum up How Christianity Changed the World in three words, what would they be?

Well defended, well communicated, and important

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

He talked about some ugly historical events, some of which I'd rather not think about -- but worth the trouble for the insights gained.

very informative

great book, I learned so much and appreciate everything.the only part I would disagree on, or would like more of the authors opinion on is the part about music. his opinion seems very legalistic, and lacking in Grace and understanding

Like no other religion

This book was required reading for one of my classes and I looked forward to it every day. James Adams does an excellent job of reading Alvin Schmidt's book which systematically covers the benefits Christianity has bestowed on our world.

Astounding

This book gave such overwhelming examples of exact and specific ways that Christianity has changed our world, I find myself quite blown away. A fabulous book that any history lover (Christian or otherwise) should make sure not to miss.

Mind blowing!

I purchased a copy of the book halfway through listening because it is jam packed with amazing research. A must read/listen for anyone interested on the origins and influences of western civilization and/or the effects Christianity had on the world from the Roman Empire to today. You won't be disappointed.

Never knew so much!

Getting ready to re listen. Brings the book of Acts alive with the historical narrative of the culture at that time. Enlarges one's view of the Almighty God? Loved this book!

fascinating wealth of historical information

The teachings of Jesus and the transformed lives of his followers have had such a profound impact on our entire world that it is impossible to imagine how different the world would be if Jesus had not come.
