Product Description

Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not A Christian clearly defined the mindset for Russell's brand of cynic atheism. But, as extensive as his critique may have been, it did not cover every argument against belief in the creator. John Stott (Baptism and Fullness: The Work of the Holy Spirit Today) takes up the challenge of finding the loophole in the reasoning of his chronologically displaced literary adversary, and turns the argument on its ear. Scholarly research, flowing prose, and many illustrative examples, both literary and biblical, crown his short masterpiece, as believer and unbeliever alike will be brought closer to an understanding of how God's election works.

Publisher's Description

Why Jesus? Perhaps you have had the funny feeling that God wants to get your attention. Or maybe you're intrigued with what you've heard about Jesus. Or maybe you're simply looking for meaning and direction in your life. John Stott has spent a lifetime wrestling with questions about Jesus both personally and in dialogue with skeptics and seekers around the globe. Now in Why I Am a Christian he provides a compelling, persuasive case for considering the Christian faith. If you take an honest look at Jesus, you will discover that following him gives you the purpose, identity and freedom you've been searching for--and far more than you have ever imagined.

“Amid a virtual smorgasbord of world religions, what answer can a believer in Christ give as to why he or she has chosen the Christian faith? Many people have no answer to this question; but, in his book Why I Am a Christian, John Stott enumerates the scriptural and intellectual reasons why it makes sense to pursue a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
“Stott contends that it is Christ alone who is responsible for our acceptance of Him, and he points to I John 4:19, which tells us, 'We love because He first loved us.' Through the validity of this and other verses of scripture, and with compelling persuasion, Stott draws on his years as an evangelist, preacher, and writer to help his readers look honestly at why they believe in the things they profess. Stott's previous books include The Cross of Christ and Basic Christianity.
“Reasoning that being a Christian not only helps define who we are, but also sets us free to be what we were created to be, Stott says, ‘Until we have discovered ourselves, we cannot easily discover anything else.’ He also says, ‘Thus, we are called both to self-affirmation and to self-denial, and we need discernment to distinguish which is appropriate and when.’ These are profound statements, the responses to which can lay the groundwork for a solid, confident profession of faith in Christ.
“This is a book for every follower of Christ. The clear and rational reasoning it provides can be used by all believers who desire an answer to the question of why they, too, are Christians.” -- Nancy K. Brown, Christian Book Previews.com

    This review was written for Why I Am a Christian.
    One of the finest books ever written by John Stott. A strong rational defense of the Christian world/life view. I often give this book out as a follow-up after talking to others about the Lord and Christianity. Excellent work.

    Loved it!! Full of doctrinal necessaries that helped even me to better share my Faith, giving clear, relevant and loving admonition to be light and salt to the One who sends us into a culture desperately in need of The Saviour. John Stott in any capacity is marvelous.
