We must educate ourselves on these points and act now if we hope to preserve authentic Christianity into the 22nd century and beyond.
Longwood, FL (Vocus) July 27, 2010
In today’s world, many millions of Christians are living under the threat of persecution. According to some estimates, a staggering 52 countries are either hostile to Christians or outlaw Christianity entirely. Within the pages of author James Stroud’s Christianity in the 22nd Century: Jihad, Darwin, & Church-ianity ($18.99, paperback, 978-1-60957-104-7), readers will find a fresh and real-life view of Christianity that reveals the past history of Christian persecution, the logic of the Christian faith through apologetics, and the hypocrisy of “Church-ianity” vs. “Christ-ianity”—all of which will play pivotal factors in the future of the faith.
“The future of Christianity really does hang on the three points covered in this book: persecution through the world against Christians, skeptics, as well as believers becoming less confident in their faith, and a growing nature of Christians being recognized as being hypocritical and non-authentic,” the author says. “We must educate ourselves on these points and act now if we hope to preserve authentic Christianity into the 22nd century and beyond.”
Stroud, who studied Christian persecution at Wesleyan College, says that he penned this book because the topics it covers are some of the most neglected in the Christian book field. “When I go to a Borders or Barnes and Noble, I see tons of books on theology or self-help, but I have yet to see a single book cover these fields in any depth,” he explains. “But this book does, while being very readable with appendices on what steps the reader can take to get involved.”
