The Power of Building Your Bright Side: Five Surprising Renewal Strategies to Personal and Business Success

Front Cover
Wynwood, 1995 - Psychology - 186 pages

The media portrayal of conservative Christians in the wake of terrorist attacks is frightening. Instead of distinguishing biblical Christianity from Islamic fundamentalism, liberal journalists lump them together. Coming from an East-Coast, leftist background, Marvin Olasky understands this antipathy. Yet he argues that God can change the hearts of those journalists even as he changed Olasky's own heart.

In this book Olasky examines the phenomenon of "Christophobia" in the mainstream media. He critiques the equation of groups such as the Taliban with conservative Christians. And he dispels myths about Islam and its history that drive the current media coverage, building a case for how different Christian and Islamic conservatives really are. This book is for conservative Christians who are tired of being beaten up by the media. It can also be given to journalists to help them understand Christianity better. After all, God may use a compassionate presentation of the facts to change their hearts.
