Is God Dying?

That's what some people think and want. They say Christian beliefs and our way of life aren't relevant anymore. But what critics and even many churchgoers don't realize is the life-changing importance of Christianity.

Showing how the world would be a dark place without Christianity, Unimaginable guides you through the halls of history to see how Jesus' teachings dramatically changed our world and continue to be the most powerful force for good today. Learn . . .

  • How Christianity has stood against the evils of slavery (more than once), racism, eugenics, and injustices toward women and children
  • Why democracy, freedom as a universal value, and modern education and legal systems owe much to Christianity
  • How Christians throughout the ages have demonstrated the value of human life by sacrificially caring for the sick, handicapped, marginalized, and dying
  • How people of faith are extending God's kingdom through charities, social justice efforts, mental health initiatives, and other profound ways

This provocative and enlightening book is for anyone concerned about where our world is heading.|

“Johnston makes a very compelling case for Christianity’s many positive contributions to world history.

Praise for Unimaginable:

“Sweeping in scope and teeming with insights, this creative and compelling book shows us the horror of a world without Christianity. An eye-opening work that should be read with pen in hand to mark points to remember. Truly powerful and persuasive.”
-Lee Strobel, bestselling author of The Case for Christ and The Case for Faith

“Much of the way we interpret reality is determined by how we view the world, and the Christian worldview has shaped millions of lives across the globe. If you want to make the case for what you believe as a Christian, or simply want to investigate the truth for yourself, this book will help you in a new and meaningful way.”
-J. Warner Wallace, cold-case detective, Senior Fellow at the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, and author of Cold-Case Christianity, God’s Crime Scene, and Forensic Faith

“With scholarly research and imaginative flair, Jeremiah Johnston asks us to consider the unimaginable: What if Christianity had not won the war of competing ideologies? What if it were not to continue as a world-changing influence? This insightful book will help you to understand why Christianity makes sense for us and the world we live in.”
-Justin Brierley, presenter of the Unbelievable radio show and podcast and Senior Editor of Premier Christianity magazine
