Sylva native, Dr. John Stiles will visit City Lights Bookstore on Saturday, May 17th at 3 p.m. to discuss his book, All the Damn Christians. In his book, Stiles presents a research-based look at the non-Christian perceptions of the Church. His title, All the Damn Christians, comes directly from a study respondent who wrote, “I would have a much higher regard for the religion itself if it weren’t for all the damn Christians.” Stiles explains to readers that Christians have been called hypocrites for centuries, and even now, many non-believers react defensively at the slightest reference to Christianity. In his book, he shares candid insights as to why the world rejects the faith and illustrates how Christians can turn hypocrisy into opportunity.

Though Dr. Stiles still lives in Sylva, he travels the world as an international speaker and serves as U.S. Director for Hannam University in South Korea. He is a graduate of Montreat College, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and the University of Southern Mississippi. To reserve a copy of his book please call City Lights Bookstore at 828-586-9499.
