Is Christianity Good for You?
asks how much Christianity is still a potent, if indirect, influence upon how we live our lives.
Is Christianity good for you? An interesting question when we consider that so much of Western culture is largely founded upon Christian thought and beliefs, and that Christianity is still a potent, if in many cases an indirect, influence upon how we live our lives. If Christianity is good for people as individuals, then it follows that it is likely to be good for them as a society. And if Christianity is good for society, then it follows that it is likely to be good for the individuals who make up society. So when we ask Is Christianity good for you? we mean is it good for you the reader and for me the writer, and at the same time is it good for the society of which you and I are a part? Let us understand the question in this way, and see where the answers lead us.

An easy to read book that left me with more questions and therefore well worth reading.~ John Smith Wilkinson, Faith and Freedom

David Fontana’s final book is a fitting culmination to his lifelong work in psychology, psychical research, consciousness studies and spirituality. With his characteristic combination of sympathy and incisiveness, he examines the many dimensions of Christianity and its influence on history and culture, steering a sensitive and intelligent middle course between militant atheism and fundamentalist creationism. His humane and gentle tone illuminates the significant issues at the centre of every thinking person’s philosophy of life.~ David Lorimer, Programme Director, Scientific and Medical Network, President, Wrekin Trust.
