“This book is about seven cultural revolutions that changed human society for the better. These revolutions are the direct result of the presence of Christianity in the world, and of the influence of the Christian Church on society. But in a time when it has become fashionable once again to cheer the misfortunes of the Church, and to highlight the Church’s failures as if they overshadow its faithfulness, it is important to point out the ways in which Christianity has made the world a better place…” Mike Aquilina
Mike Aquilina is a prolific writer who always manages to put his finger on the pulse of the Catholic Church. He has once again found the heart of the issue in Seven Revolutions: How Christianity Changed the World and Can Change it Again. This book is simple in nature and profound in its wisdom. By examining seven cultural shifts, all rooted in Judaism and the early church, Aquilina proves how the church impacted Western culture in early times and continues to inspire and change the world in which we live. Rooted in history and scripture, this book proves that the church is still relevant today and that the Christian faith has a role in changing modern America. Although the church has been a political force, religious power, and global target at times, Aquilina proves that it the church remains a force of change and has the power to influence individuals and the world.
This is a life changing read (and I do not say this lightly) that as inspiring as it is informative. It is packed with spiritual insight and historical relevance and shows the seven revolutions of the church and how the church can truly change the world as we know it.
