Publisher's Description

A masterful, inviting telling of the Christian story

Christian faith, says Martin Copenhaver, is not a subject to be mastered like calculus or Shakespeare—it is a story to be told and a life to be lived. No matter how much or how little you know, To Begin at the Beginning tells the story of Christian faith and invites you to take part in it.

In this book Copenhaver covers basic themes—the Bible, church, ministry, sacraments, prayer, ethics&mdash:in a clear and inviting way. His approach creates a valuable resource for pastors, an accessible guide for seekers and new Christians, and a "refresher course" for longtime Christians who want to engage anew with what they believe.

Author Bio

Martin B. Copenhaver is president of Andover Newton Theological School and a United Church of Christ minister. His other books include Room to Grow: Meditations on Trying to Live as a Christian and This Odd and Wondrous Calling: The Public and Private Lives of Two Ministers (with Lillian Daniel).

Editorial Reviews

William H. Willimon
"Martin Copenhaver has a great gift for talking about deep and difficult matters in a unique, enjoyable way. His book is a wonderful introduction to the Christian faith or an invigorating way to renew faith."

Barbara Brown Taylor
"Copenhaver has done a bold thing well. Working patiently with the formidable bulk of Christian faith and thought, he has untangled its denser matters and smoothed them out."
