The Global War on Christians?

Posted: April 11, 2014 in Uncategorized
So I had to read this book The Global War on Christians by John L. Allen Jr. for Blogging For Books. Honestly, I didn’t enjoy this book.This book just screams written by a journalist. I was excited at first and while the book is loaded to the brim with factual information and sound arguments, it lacks feeling. It was just one story of persecution after another. Which of course is what the book was about but at times it was just mind numbing.
This is a rough book, I knew it would be going in. But I needed to read it. This is not an every day read. It is intense and gritty. It will make you stop and think. It will as he puts in the end.. make you wake up.
My biggest and basically only issue with the book is that no footnotes or bibliography is provided, hence checking his sources becomes shady. He basically tells us to just type in keywords and search for it.
 
It is what it is…3stars
