Bestselling author Michael Coren explodes popular myths about the history, beliefs, and culture of Christianity.
Michael Coren explores why and how Christians and Christian ideas are caricatured in popular media as well as in sophisticated society. He takes on, and debunks, ten great myths about Christianity: that it supports slavery, is racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-intellectual, anti-Semitic, provokes war, resists progress, and is repressive and irrelevant. In a climate that is increasingly as ignorant of Christianity as it is good at condemning it, Coren gives historical background, provides examples of how these attacks are made, and explains the reality of the Christian response, outlining authentic Christian beliefs.
MICHAEL COREN is the bestselling author of twelve books, including biographies of G.K. Chesterton, H.G. Wells, Arthur Conan Doyle, J.R.R. Tolkien, and C.S. Lewis. He is the host of the talk show "The Arena" on the SUN News Network. He also hosts a daily radio show and writes a syndicated column for ten daily newspapers. His most recent book, Why Catholics Are Right, was a national bestseller.
Praise for Why Catholics Are Right:
"Michael Coren has given us an essential, clever and stylish book of Catholic apologetics, history, and theology accessible to both the informed as well as the searching. Crack this cover and discover why Coren as well as Catholics are right. A terrific read."
