In 2006, Christianity Today voted this title to be one of the top 50 books that have shaped evangelicals! Who is Jesus? "If Jesus was not God in human flesh, Christianity is exploded," writes John Stott. "We are left with just another religion with some beautiful ideas and noble ethics; its unique distinction has gone." If Jesus is not who he said he was, and if he did not do what he said he had come to do, the whole superstructure of Christianity crumbles in ruins to the ground. Is it plausible that Jesus was truly divine? And what might this mean for us? John Stott's clear, classic statement examines the historical facts on which Christianity stands. Here is a sound, sensible guide for all who seek an intellectually satisfying explanation of the Christian faith.
John R. W. Stott (1921-2011) has been known worldwide as a preacher, evangelist and communicator of Scripture. For many years he served as rector of All Souls Church in London, where he carried out an effective urban pastoral ministry. A leader among evangelicals in Britain, the United States and around the world, Stott was a principal framer of the landmark Lausanne Covenant (1974). His many books, including and have sold millions of copies around the world and in dozens of languages. Whether in the West or in the Two-Thirds World, a hallmark of Stott's ministry has been expository preaching that addresses the hearts and minds of contemporary men and women. Stott was honored by magazine in 2005 as one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World."
"There are a few landmark books that everyone in the world should read. This is one of the rare few. In the twenty-first century, you cannot afford to ignore this book! Whether you are a skeptic, raised in another faith, spiritual seeker or Christian believer, you need to know why 2.3 billion people call themselves 'Christians.' You need to know what they believe and why they believe it. This book is especially essential for leaders in business, government, academics, media, entertainment, journalism and other fields that work directly with people. To be able to have an intelligent conversation with one-third of our world's population, you need to understand their worldview. This is the classic introduction to the faith that has transformed billions of lives."

KateDallas, TXAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5I bought an additional 40 copies for others.December 21, 2010KateDallas, TXAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5It is an excellent overview of Christianity - I am using it as a witness tool to share with others who are exploring the faith. I lead an ESL program at our church, and gave a copy to each teacher as a basis for sharing. My son, a seminary student, uses the book when he mentors college students, and I needed a book for a Russian friend who is considering Christianity. I am also reading it with a student from Japan who is already a Christian, but returning to her own country where there are few Christians. Interestingly, I found that one of the seminary professors gives it to people who he meets while working out at the YMCA - it is easy to read and clearly points out that Christianity centers on a relationship with Jesus - as Christians we are to be His people.
Jason Chess4 Stars Out Of 5November 24, 2009Jason ChessI am still reading this book, but it is great! It isn't just for Christians; it explains what Christianity is about, focusing a lot of Jesus, so everyone can understand.
Joel Weber5 Stars Out Of 5December 28, 2007Joel WeberWell written in a purposeful and clear style. I have no quips with the content nor extent of this book. Those essential elements and doctrines of Christianity are well spelled out and those wishing yet more clarification or depth can use this book as their important initial step to knowledge. A great book to offer a young believer or to strengthen the nominal. The Trinity while not deliberately outlined, is evident to anyone who has some background in rationality - if all three persons of the Trinity are equal in all respects and all God, then this Doctrine is well represented with many direct quotes from Scripture. I particularly like that Stott reveals those necessary duties of Christians (not for salvation but part of justification). Too often the Christian is informed that naught but his mental assent is needed. Here Stott delineates those crucial outward elements incumbent upon those that claim a true fellowship with Christ!
