We keep hearing that Christianity–particularly conservative, evangelical, orthodox Christianity–is dying out. We are told that secularists, atheists, and “nones” are getting the upper hand in American religion, that young people are deserting traditional faiths, that the church is dying. None of that is true. Quite the contrary.
Glenn Stanton has written a new book entitled The Myth of the Dying Church: How Christianity Is Actually Thriving in America and the World. He cites an abundance of evidence from prominent objective scholars that punctures the myth of Christian decline and shows that “intense religion”–as held by committed, believing, faith-filled Christians–is not in decline at all.
