Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
There was a time—not all that long ago—when the question "Where are the Christians?" would never have been asked. But shifts in demographics, a decline in mainline religion, and the influx of immigrants from other cultures has muddied the issue, creating a cottage industry of polling and surveying, tracking the whereabouts of Christians of all affiliations. Shuster (Catholic Roots, Mormon Harvest) offers a comprehensive survey of Christian populations, beginning with the birth of the church and extending to the present. This multi-layered work examines the question "What is a Christian?" from many perspectives. The gradual erosion of society's mores and the crumbling of family structures are seen as factors in the disestablishment of American religious life. Along the way, Shuster challenges readers to evaluate their own commitment to the Christian faith. Such introspection can be painful, but in the end, the reader is rewarded with a richer understanding of one's self and one's neighbors. This very fine work deserves a wide audience. (May)

    The Changing Nature, Dynamics, and Impact of Christianity in the

    The Changing Nature, Dynamics, and Impact of Christianity in the Modern World 




    In his book Where are the Christians? Eric Shuster presents a scholarly survey, giving a panoramic overview and analysis of the history of the Christian Church. At a time when moral principles, cultural ideologies, and individual worldviews are being challenged Shuster calls for intellectual integrity and Christian compassion to examine The Unrealized Potential of a Divided Religion (the subtitle of the book.)




    Shuster draws heavily from the writings of Paul Johnson’s comprehensive and highly revered book The History of Christianity. Although he skillfully models the scholarly presentation of Johnson and is genuinely engaging he lacks Johnson’s gentle sensitivity and objectivity. 




    Other reviewers have thoroughly covered the content and intent of Shuster’s work. I will neither try to replicate, nor challenge their evaluations. It is hoped that as you consider each review you will better understand Shuster’s intent and passion for the cause of Christianity. Be sure to avail yourself of the companion workbook which provides a framework for additional individual or group study and reflection.




    Shuster is to be commended for the thorough research and impeccable documentation of his work. The quality of the content, binding, cover, print, and format of the book insure that Where are the Christians? will have a permanent and prominent place in my reference library.



    A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
