We live in a cynical age in which only one prejudice is tolerated--anti-Christian bigotry. Yet despite the unbridled slanders and attacks against the faith, one powerful truth is undeniable: if Christ had never been born, nearly every facet of human life would be much more miserable than it is today. Arranged topically and presenting compelling, little-known historical facts, What If Jesus Had Never Been Born? clearly demonstrates that an enormous array of benefits to humankind--from economics to art to government, science to civil liberties, morality to health, and beyond--would never have occurred had Jesus Christ not lived.… (mais)

The book begins with the history of how human life had little to no value, the infanticide, sacrifices, and the cruel treatment towards the elderly.
The chapters cover everything from civilization changes, value of life, helping the poor, government with Christian foundation, civil liberties, science, work ethic, sex and family, healing the sick, art, music, literature, the negative history and when restraints are removed.
Pg. 89 Many people view Christianity as an impediment to the continuation of their "freedom" to sin. But they have transformed liberty into license, and in the worst form of licentiousness, they don't want anybody speaking against that or in any way restraining them. Hence, the modern hedonist views Christianity as repressive and not liberating.
pg. 189 People are not improved by atheism unless they so define that as abandoning a twisted form of Christianity that isn't Christianity at all!
pg. 205 Despite all the good the Church has done and continues to do, we're reminded ad nauseum about the Crusades, the Inquisition, and the witch-hunts - as if they are the sum total of the Christian record in history.
(Ironically this was just mentioned in the media and so found it to be very ironic the timing and all). Interestingly enough the witch hunts were stopped by two Christian men. But to that story there's more than we may ever know.
The book was a very thought provoking and well written. I would highly recommend this book. ( )

This is an older Christian book with original copyright of 1994. But it's a timeless subject and was very refreshing. People who think that Christianity is a threat should read this book. Many like to point to dark periods in the church history to mock Christianity. With honesty, Kenney and Newcombe, pull back the curtain on the Crusades, the Inquisition, etc. He points out that there is a difference between those who claim to be of a "Christian" culture but who aren't really saved and therefore are not true Christians. So called "Christians" who did horrible things are not true Christians. They are wolves in sheep's clothing.

I really encourage you to read this book! ( )

Kennedy presents some provocative questions that stir the reader to reconsider the world as we know it and what an impact Jesus Christ has on our entire universe. Was he liar, lunatic, or messiah? ( )
