Publisher's Description

Drawing on passages from Romans 1 to 12, J.D. Greear unpacks the essential aspects of the Christian message, showing both secular and religious people what the gospel is and how it addresses our most pertinent questions. The gospel, as he explains, is not just about life after death; it’s about reclaiming the life we’ve always yearned to live.

Whether you are exploring the core concepts of Christianity or you are a weary Christian wanting to rediscover the excitement and joy of knowing God, this warm and compelling explanation of the goodness, truth and power at the heart of the Christian faith is for you.

As J.D. says in his introduction:

“The gospel is not just the diving board off which you jump into Christianity—it’s the swimming pool in which you swim. See this book as your invitation to rediscover the goodness, the excitement, the liberation and the power of the gospel.”

Editorial Reviews

Our questions really matter. Yet our questions should cause us to seek for the truth and not just end the conversation at our query. That’s what J.D. Greear does here. He asks the questions—and proposes clear answers—about key issues of the Christian faith. Essential Christianity will be a key resource for those considering the faith and for their friends who want to share it with them. -- Ed Stetzer (Executive Director, The Billy Graham Center, Wheaton College, Illinois)

My heart was skipping with excitement as I read this book. J.D. writes with simplicity and grip—he teaches clearly because he understands deeply. This book will show you a devastating critique of the human condition that will ring true to your experience of life; and then it will reveal to you the overwhelming wonder of God’s solution in Jesus Christ. Whether you are an honest seeker or a mature pilgrim, I cannot commend this book highly enough to you. -- Rico Tice (Founder, Christianity Explored Ministries)

If you’re wondering what on earth to believe in a confusing and often disappointing world, Essential Christianity could be just the lifeline you need. In it, pastor J.D. Greear peels back the layers that can get piled on top of Christianity and helps us see the 1st-century original, which offers life-changing hope to billions around the world today—including you. -- Rebecca McLaughlin (Author, Confronting Christianity)

J.D. Greear has a rare gift for really getting into the mind of the modern skeptic. He gets out in front of every key question and objection to Christianity and answers each one with compassion, honesty, and a great sense of humor. I bet even the surliest and most self-assured atheist wouldn’t mind sitting next to Greear on a plane—and would never be quite the same after their conversation. -- Molly Worthen (Associate Professor of History, University of North Carolina; New York Times columnist; Author, Apostles of Reason: The Crisis of Authority in American Evangelicalism)

Every generation needs a voice to present the central tenets of the Christian faith in a way that is both contemporary and timeless. With Essential Christianity, J.D. Greear shares the good news using simple, direct language and explanations first laid out by the apostle Paul. A compelling and helpful guide for anyone exploring their own faith journey. -- Dan Cathy (Chairman, Chick-fil-A)
