Christian history is full of violence, corruption, and oppression. So, would we be better off without Christianity? Does religion poison everything?
The history of the church offers plenty of ammunition to its critics. Crusades, inquisitions, witch hunts, the oppression of women …
For the Love of God: How the church is better + worse than you ever imagined confronts the worst of what Christians have done, and also traces the origins of Western values like human rights, charity, humility, and non-violence back to the influence of Jesus.
This is not the history we think we know.
Join John Dickson, Justine Toh, and Simon Smart on location around the globe and in conversation with leading international scholars as they weigh up the good, the bad, the ugly – and the unexpected – when it comes to the impact Christianity has had on the world we live in.
Join the discussion, Thursdays at 7pm, Nov. 23rd, to Dec. 14th.
Everyone is invited!
