More Description

Christians looking for a refresher course in the essentials of their faith and general inquirers seeking to know the historic beliefs of Christianity will find answers to their questions in Christian Basics. Arranging basic theological beliefs in a narrative form, Christian Basics highlights the Christian story as Scripture tells it: it begins with creation and moves on to discuss the Fall, God's covenants with Noah and Israel, Jesus Christ, the church, salvation and consummation. Both the prologue and the epilogue of this story focus on God, an intentional structure which shows that the Christian story is grounded in the purposes of the triune God. Supporting this narrative are various charts that portray the "chapters" in the Christian story, different views on the Atonement, ways of understanding the Bible in relation to the traditions of the church and human experience, the diverse aspects of the church's mission, and the relation of clergy to laity. In simple language with a creative flair, the authors also confront contemporary issues ranging from science and secularism to the rise of fundamentalism and to the "new age" spirituality, offering guidelines for living a spiritually rich life as well as a summary of the Christian doctrines. A glossary is included to aid readers in understanding theological terms. As a jointly written project, this book draws on the experience of both men and women in the interpretation of Christian faith, an important perspective in a day when inclusivity of viewpoint is crucial. The authors' shared pastoral and teaching background roots their writing deeply in the life and mission of the church, and their discussion is permeated by a joyful gratitudethat readers will find inspiring. This practical guide promises to be as fundamental an introduction to Christian belief and life as John Stott's Basic Christianity.
