'Forgotten Foundation' by Russ Stevenson
Following up from Dr. Case Thorp's sermon on May 18, 2014, many of you have asked about the book he recommended, Forgotten Foundation.
Forgotten Foundation comes from a series of lectures Rev. Russ Stevenson gave to the graduating high school seniors each spring of his 30-plus pastoral ministry. It presents the great gifts of Christianity to the world like emancipation of women, abolition of slavery, and scientific inquiry. As well, the author addresses legitimate criticisms concerning the darker periods of the Church's history (antisemitism, crusades, etc). This is a perfect book for the skeptic, as well as a book that equips disciples for conversational evangelism.
