Easily the most self-contradictory and self-congratulatory collection of cliches and amusing vignettes I've read in a long time.

If you want a self-help book that isn't helpful, this is for you.

Christian Books O...: READ ONE BOOK AND REVIEW 33 232 Jan 12, 2019 01:28PM  
Dinesh D'Souza
“Christianity holds that man, no matter how hard he tries, cannot reach God. Man cannot ascend to God’s level because God’s level is too high. Therefore there is only one remedy: God must come down to man’s level. Scandalous though it may seem, God must, quite literally, become man and assume the burden of man’s sins. Christians believe that this was the great sacrifice performed by Christ. If we accept Christ’s sacrifice on the basis of faith, we will inherit God’s gift of salvation. That’s it. That is the essence of Christianity. To some it may seem ridiculously simple. In this simplicity, however, there is considerable depth and richness.”
Dinesh D'Souza, What's So Great About Christianity

“One canon reduced to writing by God himself, two testaments, three creeds, four general councils, five centuries, and the series of Fathers in that period – the centuries that is, before Constantine, and two after, determine the boundary of our faith.”
Lancelot Andrewes

G.K. Chesterton
“He has based all his brilliancy and solidity upon the hackneyed, but yet forgotten, fact that truth is stranger than fiction. Truth, of course, must of necessity be stranger than fiction, for we have made fiction to suit ourselves.”
G.K. Chesterton, Heretics
