The book is a course of seven Bible studies. They address matters such as What is God's Kingdom? What is God's plan for man? What is christianity really about? The studies came from an extended examination of what Jesus taught, as recorded in the four Gospels, and what the prophets and apostles had to say. It was presented originally as an inter-church Lent course.
The studies give an alternative approach to christianity, having in mind christians who want to delve more thoughtfully into their faith. It also addresses the 35% of western populations who may consider themselves christians but do not go to a church, and the churches to which they do not go.
The studies promote a relationship with God and a living out of our faith.
