Mr. D'Souza's description of the impact of Christianity in the history of the world is persuasive. He tends to gloss over the failings of the church where its warts are all too apparent, however, in order to minimize claims that organized religion in general and Christianity in particularly are the cause of much suffering in the world. As only one example, D'Souza acknowledges the horrors of the Spanish Inquisition but attempts to downplays its impact, claiming that the Church did not target Jews but only those who had claimed to convert to Christianity but in fact still practiced their original faith. He totally ignores why so many Jews and Muslims converted or claimed to convert to Christianity in the first place - after the Spanish/Christian conquest of Granada from the Moors, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella dispossessed all Jews and Muslims from their property and drove tens of thousands from their homes and out of Spain altogether. Thus, to say that the madness of the Inquisition was limited to lapsed Christians is blatantly misleading and only adds fuel to the fire that rages between the fundamentalist Christians/Muslims/Jews on the one hand and the fundamentalist atheists on the other. This discussion is best served by a more balanced presentation of the facts.

Whether to believe or not to believe, Dinesh explores the facts with a fair and objective balance that makes this book an enjoyable one. I challenge you to read it for yourself and make a decision based on the facts within the book.

Thanks to this wonderful man Dinesh D'Souza, I have found my true calling in life: to become a gay gogo dancer. This book really put me in touch with my homosexual tendencies and I just LOVE him for that. I can finally scream out to the world that I'm a proud GAY AMERICAN MAN!

The author spoke at our school today and he has very intelligent and educated answeres as to why he believes what he believes and it's really something to hear him speak. It's a great book and I really reccommend it for anyone who is lost or for someone who just wants to strenghten their faith!

the arthur dinesh dsouza has writtion a very indepth and most hard to put down best seller that gives exellent research to show that christianity has alot of truth and this page turner give it a great defence and what I found fasinating from this best seller was the arthur showed some intresting documentation that athiest goverments are the ones that through out history have committed the most mass murders the writer brings to mind the goverments of communist china, nazi germany,commuinst russia and commusist north vietnam. I find athiest groups dont want to menchion this fact . great book for a Bible study or perhaps a gift for someone special.
