This compact book for laity introduces the major concepts of the Christian faith in a quick, easy-to-read fashion. The author begins with a brief overview of Christian history from biblical times to the present, with references to key people and events that shaped the faith. He follows this with sections on God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. For each of these topics, he sketches the basic ideas of the Bible and then shows how Christians in different centuries and contexts have applied these ideas to their own lives and circumstances. Author James White shows us the variety of Christian ideas about God but puts it all in order so that laypeople can understand how it all fits together. The end result is an inspiring overview of Christianity in its theological diversity and its continuing relevance for today, showing believers just how rich this deep tradition of faith can be. The book includes discussion questions and a glossary and is ideal for use in adult study groups.
