Christianity Matters

In These Troubled Times

In an increasingly secular, materialistic and individualistic age, the argument is put Judeo-Christianity is of little, if any, significance or relevance. In Western societies like Australia, Judeo-Christianity, for all its sins, underpins and safeguards our political and legal systems and contributes much in areas like health, education, welfare, literature, music and the arts. Christianity Matters is a vital read for anyone interested in religion, Christianity in particular, and who wants to know more about the challenges and threats faced by religion in Australia and Western societies today. Through this collection of essays, readers will gain a better understating of the sins and failures of the Church and how Christianity offers the road to human flourishing and inner peace and spiritual fulfilment.

Since first warning about the dangers of political correctness during the mid-1990s Kevin Donnelly has established a reputation as one of Australia’s leading conservative commentators and authors fighting against politically correct group think and language control that are undermining Western societies and stifling free and open debate.He is the author of How Political Correctness is Destroying Australia, How Political Correctness is Destroying Education, How Political Correctness is Still Destroying Australia, Christianity is Good For Us, and is the editor of Cancel Culture and the Left’s Long March.
