Introduction to Christianity’s Contributions

Who started hospitals?  What was the original purpose of “Sunday School”?  Who developed the scientific method and why?  Who viewed all life as valuable, from womb to tomb?

In the coming days and years, the Christian Church will continue to be attacked as one of the main perpetrators of evil and suffering in the world.  In order to counteract that charge, the blogs to follow in the coming months will equip believers to state the case for the Christian faith as the driving force for good in the world.

Dr. Paul Meier, professor of Ancient History at Western Michigan University, summarized the Church’s contributions: “No other religion, philosophy, teaching, nation, movement–whatever–has so changed the world for the better as Christianity has done.”

An excellent resource to further your knowledge of this subject is Alvin Schmidt’s How Christianity Changed the World.
