By: Holland, Tom.

Ranging from Moses to Merkel, from Babylon to Beverly Hills, from the emergence of secularism to the abolition of slavery, it explores why, in a society that has become increasingly doubtful of religion's claims, so many of its instincts remain irredeemably Christian. Even the increasing numbers in the West today pointless superstition remain recognisably its heirs. Christianity's enduring impact is not confined to churches. It can be seen everywhere in the West: in science, in secularism, in gay rights, even in atheism. It is - to coin a phrase - the greatest story ever told.
