Publisher's Description

In this book--the first in a series of short, accessible guides--noted author Alister McGrath examines the nature of faith. Offering an extended reflection on the opening words of the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed--"I believe"--McGrath provides a compelling defense of core Christian beliefs. In his usual learned yet accessible style, McGrath demonstrates how these enduring Christian beliefs help explain God's world and our place in it. With future volumes to examine other core Christian principles, McGrath's new series will define "mere Christianity" to a new generation for years to come. Ideal for group study and personal devotion.
