Freedom, Religious liberty, Justice, Healthcare, Education, the sanctity of life, Women’s Rights, the emancipation of slaves, the environment, even animal welfare have all been transformed for the better by Christianity.

Wilberforce, Shaftesbury, Butler – to name but a few – were men and women who, driven by their deep Christian faith have had a hand in transforming the world.

Dr Sharon James is The Christian Institute’s Social Policy Analyst. Here, she speaks to Ciarán Kelly about her new book, How Christianity Transformed the World and urges today’s Christian’s to embrace and build on the incredible legacy of previous generations of believers.

How Christianity Transformed the World is on sale from Friday, 5 March from Christian Focus Publications.

She is also the author of ‘God’s Design for Women in an Age of Gender Confusion’ and ‘Gender Ideology: What do Christians Need to Know?’.
