Some reasons to start to explore Christianity

From the viewpoint of a secularist, what are some reasons to consider exploring Christianity?

1. If you want to connect to and make some sense of 1,500 years of culture. It is almost impossible to really understand the painting, sculpture, music, literature, and architecture of the past 1,500 years without a significant understanding of Christianity. See here.

2. If you look around yourself, and don’t think the promise of the atheistic utopia is manifesting. Indeed, it might seem that secular trends on the whole seem negative (although perhaps we are riding on scientific and technological capital).

3. If you start to suspect there are practical tools, developed within various Christian traditions (meditation, tithing, and so on), that can significantly improve your life or society in general – that are useful, whatever the intellectual context of their deployment.
