What Good is Christianity? : A UWA Chaplain's International Lecturer, Dr Mangalwadi brings experience and research to shed light on western culture. Other events...
What GOOD is Christianity? How would Australia look without it? Dr Vishal Mangalwadi: international author, philosopher and social reformer Vishal grew up in India, surrounded by Christian, Hindu, Buddhist and Islamic influences. In his teens he became a Christian, attracted to the life and teachings of Jesus. After studying philosophy at university, and spending time living in a Hindu ashram, he began to recognise the enormous benefits that the Bible has given to Western nations. Vishal and his wife Ruth turned down attractive US job offers. Instead they chose to minister among disadvantaged communities in rural India. They battled infanticide, corruption and entrenched poverty. Vishal even spent time in jail because of his efforts to help the people. He constantly asked himself: Why are some nations more successful than others? It led to the publication two years ago of his best-seller: The Book That Made Your World. in which he tracked key biblical influences that have shaped the West today. Much is broadcast about religious hypcrisy but what is the bible's enduring value? Has Christianity done any good in our culture? If so, what? Come and hear Vishal’s unique story and inspiring insights. www.whatgood.net.au
