Publisher's Description

A primer on Christianity--its scriptures, history, beliefs, practices and uniqueness--and some helpful guidelines for Christian living in today's world. "John Schwarz's book What's Christianity All About? offers a good overview of the Bible. It also provides a brief sketch of the history of Christianity, sets forth important Christian beliefs, suggests ways for Christians to deepen their faith and, last, offers some guidelines for Christian living. For those serious about Christianity and the desire to understand it better, this book is a good place to begin." --N. T. (Tom) Wright, Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity, University of Saint Andrews, Scotland "What's Christianity All About? is a much-needed book that provides information to whet readers' appetites. It also opens wide the doors to help us see and imagine the future into which the triune God is calling us even now." --Sarah S. Henrich, Professor of New Testament, Luther Seminary "What's Christianity All About? is a both a guidebook for inquirers and beginners and a refresher course for the casual. It contains brief surveys of the Christian Bible, Christian beliefs, Christian history, Christian living and Christianity alongside other faiths. Brisk, exact and user-friendly, it merits a very wide ministry and will bring clarity of focus wherever it goes." J. I. Packer, Board of Governors Professor of Theology, Regent College "John Schwarz writes as a layman, and he writes so that laypersons can understand. However, what he writes shows the result of serious biblical scholarship. This is a good read for those who want to know what the Bible is all about and Jesus' relevance to the modern world." --Tony Campolo, Professor Emeritus, Eastern University "John Schwarz is a careful thinker, a lover of the faith, an equipper of the church. He has devoted himself to making an understanding of Christian Scripture and thoughts available on a broad scale. I am grateful for his work." --John Ortberg, Senior Pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church "The most appropriate description that I can think of for John Schwarz's book is multum in parvo, that is, a great deal in a small space. For here we are given a succinct summary of the contents of the Bible, a brief history of Christianity, an introduction to other religions, together with outlines of both Christian belief and behavior. John Schwarz has succeeded in giving us a mine of information, some skillful overviews, and in areas of controversy, a fair statement of the different options." --John R. W. Stott Former Rector Emeritus, All Souls Church, London "What's Christianity All About? is an excellent road map for those starting out on the Christian journey. It is a good primer on the Bible, one that paints a picture of the big story of God at work in the world and shows how the different parts of the Bible fit together. I warmly recommend it to those who want to understand what it means to be a follower of Christ." --Leighton Ford, President, Leighton Ford Ministries "What's Christianity All About? by John Schwarz combines an encyclopedic breadth of information and insights--and materials not usually found in overviews and surveys of the Bible--with an easy-to-read style. I can think of no other introduction, intended for the lay reader, that does the job as well." --Patrick R. Keifert, President, Church Innovations Institute John Schwarz is a CPA and lawyer who spent his working life in the corporate business world. He took early retirement and went to seminary and then Africa as a missionary. His Handbook of the Christian Faith, on which this book is partially based, has been translated into several foreign languages.
