Christianity best true story, Greg Sheridan tells 28th Toowoomba Mayoral Prayer Breakfast

Offering ‘an avenue back to enchantment’ provided the motivation for journalist Greg Sheridan to write books on Christianity, he told this morning’s (May 24) 600-strong crowd at the 28th Toowoomba Mayoral Prayer Breakfast at Rumours.

Mr Sheridan, who is the foreign affairs editor at The Australian, swapped his late-night working routine for a rare early morning speaking appearance at the community fundraiser. Funds raised from the Mayoral Prayer Breakfast will be presented to Winter Shelter Toowoomba in coming weeks.

“Journalists are looking for a good story and the truth,” Mr Sheridan said.

“Christianity is the best story and it also is true.”

Mr Sheridan said his early life in a Christian family meant he had no trouble with a belief in God. He said the decline in the role and influence of Christianity in western culture gave him the inspiration to write in its defence.
