Professional Reviews

The book addresses four stages in readers' spiritual lives - unbelief, belief, commitment, and discipleship - employing clear prose buttressed by copious Scriptural citations to outline the core beliefs of Christianity.


These include the nature of the Trinity, the character of Jesus as both teacher and Messiah, and the precepts of Christian tolerance, charity, and self-denial; give to the poor, help the downtrodden, sublimate one's wants to the needs of others, etc.

The entire gamut of Christian subjects is covered in satisfying detail, with pertinent biblical quotations assembled on such topics as hell, angels, Satan, the mechanics of prayer, the afterlife, original sin, the personality of God, and the specific teachings of the church ... 


In the ambition, sweep, and comprehensiveness ..., Christians should find a gold mine of useful information and synthesis, with plenty of textual references to track down.


A spirited and comprehensive overview of the scriptural foundations of Christianity."

I was especially impressed with the Knowledge check and Controversial Topics sections that engaged the reader so well, spurring self-questioning to a vast degree, certainly a book that a couple or group could read together for some illuminating conversation.


Historical details are masterfully provided, and I found the origin of church names to be a stellar topic ... 


Excellent job. Author delivers on the promise to educate about Christianity in simpler concepts than we often get.


Excellent resources section providing quotes and parables by Jesus. This book would be a welcome addition to any early faith discoverer eager to learn more about Christianity.


Well done. Very impressive and a terrific pace considering so much historical and educational material."
