Hi All, I have been an avid

Hi All,

I have been an avid reader of Dinesh D'souza's book. One of his latest books ( New York Bestseller ) is "What's so great about Christianity". This is a comprehensive and all encompassing apologetics on Christianity. A must read.

God has greatly blessed Dinesh with wisdom and a skill to lucidly pen down his thoughts in the most invigorating and influential manner. His research into penning this book is worthy of praise. His debats with atheists are well documented and can be viewd on 'U tube' and on various USA network channels.

Way to go Stanislites! We truly are a world class institution, infusing truth and love around the world.

God bless,

Alfred Gomez
