Book Review: What's So Great About Christianity by Dinesh D'Souza
by Patricia Mondore

I wasn't planning on reading this book, but after Patty's review, I might have to get it. Has anybody else read it?

I haven't read it. I have read some of D'Souza's articles and blog entries though and I've found him to provoke a lot of thinking and to make some strong statements that are worthy of examination. He seems to be ascending as a voice in the public discourse responding to the New Atheism movement pushed by Dawkins, Dennett, Harris and Hitchens.

Along these lines, here's an interesting article on the Templeton Prize winner recently announced that might be worthy of note.

I know that this is a little late, but I just finished that book and it's amazing. The only bad thing about it is that if I try to read another book on apologetics, I'd just keep on thinking "this books is nowhere as good as What's So Great About Cristianity."

Yep, I read it a couple of times already.
A nice common sense intro to apologetics for the "every day christian".
Dinesha's book about the after life is very interesting also.

I wish Dinesh D'Souza picked a different title for this book. Whenever I read it in public, everybody thought I was reading one of those atheist books. It's still amazing.
