This introductory-level book on Christianity looks clearly at what the church believed and taught throughout its history. Hard questions about the Bible, theology, and the Christian life are dealt with. As author, veteran scholar, and pastor James Howell puts it, "Great hope rests in thinking through these questions." In doing so, he explores what it means to live as a Christian, as part of the church community, and also what it means to live with the hope Christian faith provides, even for those who "previously believed there was no hope. Study questions for discussion are included.

Glenda Hendry1 Stars Out Of 5If you believe the Bible is the inspired WordApril 2, 2012Glenda HendryMeets Expectations: 1I can't be very objective because I couldn't get past the first chapter which includes a subtopic entitled "Imperfection in the Bible." Included within that ominous heading is the statement: "The Bible is not inspired in the sense that God whispered the text into a scribe's ear who wrote it all down before it could be somehow tainted by humanity." I feel so sad for Mr. Howell. I pray he learns what the Word of God really is and that God whispers in his ear.
