As the title suggests, Wright decided to set the story straight on Evangelical Christianity. Too many statistics are misinformed and misinterpreted. A sociologist familiar with the proper use of statistics, Wright provides the reader with up to date stats and interpretation.
Did I mention that he’s genuinely laugh-out-loud funny? Here’s my favourite quote:
At this point, allow me to interject that there is a crucial distinction between extramarital sex and extra marital sex. One is committing adultery, the other represents a better-than-average week, and they have very different consequences.
At times the sheer volume of stats and graphs became overwhelming. This isn’t a criticism—it’s the nature of the book. This is a volume worth pondering by anyone frustrated with the negative views of Evangelical Christianity portrayed by the media, and indulged in by ourselves.
