Is Christianity obsolete? Can an intelligent, educated person really believe the Bible? Has Christianity been disproven by science, debunked as a force for good, and discredited as a guide to morality? Do the atheists have it right?
Bestselling author Dinesh D'Souza looks at Christianity with a questioning eye, but treats atheists with equal skepticism; he challenges the assumptions of both believers and doubters, and affirms that there really is, indeed, something great about Christianity- Grace Cathedral
A New York Times bestselling author, Dinesh D'Souza, the President of The King's College in NYC, has had a distinguished 25 year career as a writer, scholar and intellectual. A former policy analyst in the Reagan White House, D'Souza also served as an Olin Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute as well as a Rishwain Scholar at the Hoover Institution at Stanford. Called one of the "top young public-policy makers in the country" by Investor's Business Daily, he quickly became a major influence on public policy through his writings. In 2008 D'Souza released the book, What's So Great About Christianity, the comprehensive answer to a spate of atheist books denouncing theism in general and Christianity in particular. Consequently he has gone on to debate atheists such as Christopher Hitchens, Peter Singer, Daniel Dennett, and Michael Shermer.

Author Dinesh D'Souza examines the implications of evolutionary theory on modern Christianity.
D'Souza believes evolution gives modern atheists reason to participate in a "liberation from traditional, or external morality," treating religious codes of conduct as human devices, not merely handed down from the cosmos.
