Renowned historian, Jeffrey Burton Russell, famous for his studies of medieval history, turns to the serious questions that confront Christianity in contemporary culture. Russell examines a wide array of common mispercerptions, characterizations, stereotypes, caricatures and outright myths about Christianity that circulate heavily within today's society, and are even believed by many Christians. In a succinct and engaging manner, Russell discusses these errors and provides thoughtful, even-handed, carefully researched and sharp-witted responses. The author sets the record straight against the New Atheists and other cultural critics who charge Christianity with being outdated, destructive, superstitious, unenlightened, racist, colonialist, based on fabrication, and other significant false accusations.

This would probably be an appropriate addition to a church library, but it’s a dubious addition to a publicly funded library. Taxpayer dollars’ going toward religious proselytization is a first step towards a possible violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution.

One of the best works on Christian apologetics out there. Russell is a retired history professor who taught at several universities including UC Santa Barbara. With his knowledge of history is able to debunk 145 lies and distorted history that, unfortunately, a lot of people believe.
