  • Rodney Stark

    Rodney Stark was a Baylor sociologist who challenged the notion that religion was on the decline. He was an agnostic for most of his career, though he wrote positively about Christianity. He apparently converted to Christianity within the last ten years or so.

    He was also notable for writing his books in plain English. He wrote something to the extent of "If someone can't explain it in ordinary language, they don't understand it."

    "I am not angered that the Moral Majority boys campaign against abortion. I am angry when the same men who say, "Save OUR children" bellow "Build more and bigger bombers." That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill
