Greg Sheridan’s God is Good For You: A Defence of Christianity in Troubled Times is a vigorous and passionate defence of Christianity. It argues, exhorts, admonishes and informs. Christians, especially their leaders, are encouraged to lift their game. Atheists are invited not to be quite so sure of their atheism ― or, at the very least, have better arguments for it. More generally the citizens of the “West” ― Christian or not ― are advised not to ignore or dismiss their Christian heritage. He sketches a future of Australian Christianity that accepts its minority status but which lives into that unfamiliar condition boldly.
