Rightly understood and rightly communicated, the Christian faith is one of great joy. It is an invitation to Gods kingdom, where tears are replaced by laughter and longing hearts find their purpose and their home. This is the heart of the gospel: Gods search to reclaim us and love us as his own. But have we truly grasped this? Those of us who have disdained Christianity as a religion of bigotryhave we repudiated the genuine article or merely demonstrated our own prejudice and ignorance? Those of us who are Christianshave we deeply apprehended the mission of Jesus, and do our ways and character faithfully reflect his beauty? From the nature of God, to the human condition, to the work of Jesus, to Gods coming kingdom, and all that lies between, how well do we understand the foundational truths of Christianity and their implications? The Faith is a book for our troubled times and for decades to come, for Christians and non-Christians alike. It is the most important book Chuck Colson and Harold Fickett have ever written: a thought-provoking, soul-searching, and powerful manifesto of the great, historical central truths of Christianity that have sustained believers through the centuries. Brought to immediacy with vivid, true stories, here is what Christianity is really about and why it is a religion of hope, redemption, and beauty.
Chuck Colson was a popular and widely known author, speaker, and radio commentator. A former presidential aide to Richard Nixon and founder of the international ministry Prison Fellowship, he wrote several books that have shaped Christian thinking on a variety of subjects, including Born Again, Loving God, How Now Shall We Live?, The Good Life, and The Faith. His radio broadcast, BreakPoint, at one point aired to two million listeners. Chuck Colson donated all of his royalties, awards, and speaking fees to Prison Fellowship Ministries.
Harold Fickett is the author of numerous books, including an acclaimed novel about the evangelical experience, The Holy Fool; a critical biography of Flannery OConnor, Images of Grace; and the inspirational Living Christ. He is a cofounder of Image: Art, Faith, Mystery, a journal devoted to the intersection of the arts and religion. He is a contributing editor of the web magazine GodSpy (www.godspy.com) and writes regularly for such publications as Books & Culture and Crisis. Fickett made contributions to Colsons projects for twenty-five years, beginning with Loving God and most recently in The Good Life. He speaks regularly at conferences and retreats. He and his wife, Karen, live in Nacogdoches, Texas, with their children, Will and Eve.
