A truly new understanding,

This review is from: Christianophobia: A Faith Under Attack (Hardcover)
Christianophobia is a landmark in the understanding of the place of religious belief in the modern world, clearly and compellingly written. It explores a blindspot in the conventional Western liberal view.
Christians are oppressed in great numbers round the world, and yet this treatment is not reported as widely as it deserves. Rupert Shortt surveys incidents from China to Nigeria, Pakistan to Vietnam.
It is very welcome to read an account that does not suggest an inevitable war of ideologies between Islam and Christianity.
This book is all the more valuable for its sobriety, accuracy and reliance on interviews with first-hand witnesses. Try it and see.
