Relating their story to the questions we have today, ‘What is meaningful in the world?’ and with the Church, ‘What does long term faithfulness look like, here and now in 21st Century Aotearoa?’ Dr Allpress presents a well-researched, inspiring talk on the potential influence a robust and intelligent faith can have today for the betterment of mankind.

How Christianity Changed the World | Alvin J Schmidt

Western civilization is becoming increasingly pluralistic, secularized, and biblically illiterate. Many people today have little sense of how their lives have benefited from Christianity’s influence, often viewing the church with hostility or resentment.

How Christianity Changed the World is a topically arranged Christian history for Christians and non-Christians. Grounded in solid research and written in a popular style, this book is both a helpful apologetic tool in talking with unbelievers and a source of evidence for why Christianity deserves credit for many of the humane, social, scientific, and cultural advances in the Western world in the last two thousand years.
