Dinesh D'Souza, born in 1961 in India, is a Christian apologist, author, policy analyst, and the former Robert and Karen Rishwain Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. D'Souza is known amongst Christians for his prolific debates with several prominent figures of the New Atheism. These include debates with Christopher Hitchens, Daniel Dennett, Michael Shermer, and Dan Barker. D'Souza has written numerous books, including his What's So Great About Christianity. D'Souza graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Dartmouth College in 1983 and is a Roman Catholic.
Regarding his book, What's So Great About Christianity, Albert Mohler had this to say:
- "Christians will find Dinesh D'Souza's latest book to be both interesting and helpful. His apologetic model is G. K. Chesterton, and he writes with a similar style and verve. I found his argument that Christians should embrace evolution while rejecting Darwinism to be unconvincing and unhelpful. The dominant model of evolutionary theory is just as atheistic and incompatible with Christianity as classical Darwinism."
