Kirjan takakannesta:

Christianity is a fairy tale! Hitler was a Christian! Christianity supported slavery! Science has shown there is no God! Christianity has pagan origins!

Myths and misperceptions like these abound across all channels of contemporary culture. Jeffrey Burton Russell, an eminent scholar of history and religion, exposes the many falsehoods that prevail in popular, social and intellectual circles. Indexing 145 myths gone viral in our age, Russell not only catalogs the errors constantly propagated but also shines the light of truth in thoughtful responses to each distortion. This compendium sets the record straight about Christianity in a contested public space and is a vital resource for knowing what Christianity really is and what Christians really believe.
