How were the books of the Bible chosen? What was the Roman world like during Jesus' life and ministry? And how are Christians to live out their faith in today's world? Living Faith offers thoughtful and engaging answers to questions about the faith, enabling believers of all backgrounds to understand Christianity more fully. John Schwarz compares and contrasts Christianity with other world religions, proposes helpful disciplines for a believer's spiritual growth, and provides a clear and balanced look at such controversial topics as free will and end-times theology.
Informative, insightful, and practical, Living Faith is an ideal resource for group or personal study, and also serves as the participant's guide in the curriculum series Living Faith: Exploring the Essentials of Christianity by Tom Wright.
John Schwarz has academic degrees in business, law, and Christian studies. He spent thirty years in the corporate business world before taking early retirement to go to Kenya as a missionary. He is the author of A Handbook of the Christian Faith, a book that grew out of Bible study courses he developed and taught in Kenya. He and his wife divide their time between Arizona and Minnesota.
