Overview

Writing from years of “real-life” experience, and not just “book” experience; this book chooses to take “the path less taken,” thus giving the reader a fresh and real-life view of Christianity and the world we live in today. Instead of choosing to repeat the same basic plot of so many other theological books, the author chooses to present the three most relevant threats that seek to undermine Christianity as we enter into the 22nd Century. The past history of Christian persecution, the logic of the Christian faith through apologetics, and finally the hypocrisy of “Church-ianity” vs. “Christ-ianity” will all play pivotal factors in the future of the faith. If you are looking for a politically correct book, then this is not it; but if you are looking for a book that is applicable and relevant to a normal believer and unbeliever alike, then this book may be just for you.

Meet the Author

James Stroud adamantly refers to himself as an “Average Joe,” who has maintained a “C” average in most of his academic works; and like most of us, has not lived a perfect life. But through Christ, he has overcome these obstacles and used them to help educate himself and those around him on better understanding the Christian faith that we profess; thus adhering to 1 Peter 3:15.

James did his undergraduate studies in history at the University of Arkansas, and has since studied Christian persecution at Wesleyan University and Christian Apologetics at Biola University; he is presently a candidate for his Masters of Theology at Trinity College of Theology and Apologetics. He is a Voice of the Martyrs area representative and a chapter leader at ReasonableFaith.org.

James is insistent if he can understand the faith he professes, then anyone can do that and much, much more.

    James Stroud's New Book, "Christianity in the 22nd Century - Jihad, Darwin, & Church-ianity Is A Great Lesson in Religion And History

    James Stroud's New Book, "Christianity in the 22nd Century - Jihad, Darwin, & Church-ianity Is A Great Lesson in Religion And History

    Mr. Stroud has put the facts into Christianity that history supports and has done an amazing job at not turning his work into a scholarly rendition. Easy to understand and full of intrigue, readers will want to not only finish the book, but understand more about the events and the evidence that tells us about the past, but also what could be in store for the future.

    The author touches on Christianity, evolution, Islam, Chinese, the Nazis, archaeology and so many other great topics. Topics that would not normally exist in a book on religion, but that serve the purpose and meaning of this book, to enlighten the world on Christianity and Christ.

    Although, a little skeptical at first, I was really intrigued with this book. I am very impressed with the author's knowledge on the subjects he writes about, but also his conviction in his beliefs. This is a great book and a must read for history buffs, Christians, and anyone wanting to stimulate their mind. Christianity in the 22nd Century will not disappoint.

    Very Highly Recommended

    This writer is obviously not that well known, but I heard him speak as a voice of the martyrs representative and at the University of Arkansas on an Intelligent Design Seminar and I will have to admit this book is VERY original and easily flows. Chapter 1 is basically on a condensed history of the persecution role in CHristianity, the 2nd chapter is a great role up of Apolgetics and why there has to be a God and why Christ over other religions, etc, and finally Chapter 3 (my favorite) on church-ianity (I love that word) vs. Christ-ianity and how presumptious it is fo us to call ourselves "christian" in many ways. Great appendicies on what we can do ourselves to get involved vs. sitting on the side line. **His website is very helpful to find out more at Apologetics101org
    VERY surprised by it's flow and great content.

    Good Read

    I enjoyed the history of Christianity and how it relates to the inactivity of current Christians. The church vs christianity was particularly interesting to me. For those who truly want to feel and act like a christian vs face time at church activities, it will really hit home.

    A VERY original book that covers 3 areas I have never seen paired before

    This book deals with 3 areas that I have yet to find any book tie together in such a unique way: Christian history, apologetics, and hypocrisy (aka - church-ianity). In a very unique manner the author makes a relevant case how these 3 points have been interwoven throughout the history of Christianity; past/present/future. He then makes (in my opinion) a very good case as to why these (if left unchecked) will spell the future (good or bad) of Christianity in the immediate future, as well as the distant 22nd century. Well researched, unique, and original. The appendices are good references, but a little long. Very much worth reading.
