Abstract:

The positive impact of Jesus Christ and his followers on Western culture cannot be overstated. Yet, ironically, today's marketplace of ideas fails to recognize the Christian foundation on which it is built. Christianity is popularly discredited by our pluralistic culture. The overlooked truth, however, is that from education to women's rights to public health to economic liberty, the things we cherish most and many of the blessings we take for granted trace to the spiritual and cultural revolutionary named Jesus.
