For The Love of God: How the Church is Better and Worse Than you Ever Imagined. A Documentary by The Centre for Public Christianity, in cinemas from May 9.

Christian history offers plenty of ammunition to its critics. Crusades, inquisitions, witch trials, the oppression of women – not to mention the horrific incidence of child abuse, covered up in recent decades by the institutional church.

For the Love of God: How the church is better and worse than you ever imagined, a documentary in progress by the Centre for Public Christianity, confronts the worst of what Christians have done – and also traces the origins of Western values like human rights, charity, humility, and non-violence back to the influence of Jesus.

This is not the history we think we know. Join us on location around the globe and in conversation with leading international scholars as we weigh up the good, the bad, the ugly – and the unexpected – about the impact Christianity has had on the world we live in.
