Is God dying? Some people think so—and more want it so. They say Christian beliefs and our way of life aren't relevant anymore. But what critics, and even many churchgoers, don't realize is the life-changing importance of Christianity.

Showing how the world would be a dark place without Christianity, Unimaginable guides you through the halls of history to see how Jesus' teachings dramatically changed our world and continue to be the most powerful force for good today. Learn

· How Christianity has stood against slavery, racism, eugenics, and injustices toward women and children
· Why freedom as a universal value and modern education and legal systems owe much to Christianity
· How Christians throughout the ages have demonstrated the value of human life by sacrificially caring for the sick, marginalized, and dying
· How people of faith are extending God's kingdom through charities, mental health initiatives, and other ways.

This provocative and enlightening book is sure to encourage believers and equip them to respond to doubters.
