7 Truths That Changed the World

In Stock

Ideas have consequences, sometimes far-reaching and world-changing. Historic Christianity embodies powerful truth-claims that have transformed the church and even turned the world upside down, beginning in the ancient Roman world. However, in the last couple of centuries, unsettling naturalistic perspectives have propelled the secularization of the Western world. The advance and entrenchment of secularism make historic Christian truth-claims newly fresh and explosive.

In 7 Truths That Changed the World, philosopher and theologian Kenneth Richard Samples explores some of Christianity’s most transformational ideas. He offers a biblical, historical, and philosophical look at how the world changed when Christ and his followers came on the scene. The ideas explored include:

  • Christ’s resurrection
  • Jesus as God incarnate
  • creation out of nothing
  • the compatibility of faith and reason
  • justification by grace through faith
  • humankind created in God’s image
  • the greater good of suffering

Pastors, students, and thoughtful Christians will be strengthened to face contemporary challenges to these truths and will find the confidence to impact their world for Christ.
