Why do they believe it?
Why does it matter?
The Faith is a book for our troubled times and for decades to come, for Christians and non-Christians alike.
Its a thought-provoking, soul-searching, powerful manifesto.
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.
True, Biblical Christianity is often mischaracterized by the media, misused by politicians, and mistaught by academics, making it misunderstood by most Americans. Everyone will benefit from reading this book - sceptics, seekers, new believers, long-time followers of Christ. It is a clear, concise, and compelling summary of what followers of Jesus actually believe. Rick Warren, bestselling author of The Purpose Driven Life.

The FaithHelen Hancox, via The Good Book Stall
A well-written discussion of what conservative Christians should believe.
Charles Colson (or is it Harold Fickett) is clearly a very good author. This book instantly caught my attention with the story about the Amish community's forgiveness in the face of a horrendous shooting. There are several other true life stories sprinkled throughout the text which illustrate the points being made, and although some of these stories are from recent events, several are also from times way back in Church history, particularly Roman times. This was an unusual and very welcome part of the book. Colson is seeking to remind Christians of the central tenets of the faith, writing with an eye to his belief in the contemporary threats of Islam, anti-theism and post-modern Christians. His vital points include the fall/original sin, the bodily resurrection, the Trinity, forgiveness and reconciliation, dignity of human life, the return of Jesus and more. He encompasses a wide sweep of history in this book, which I liked, quoting the early church fathers and referring frequently to the Creeds as well as modern authors such as C S Lewis.
As someone who very much values the emerging church movement, its explorations of post-modern society, and the scholarly efforts of liberal Christians, I found much in this book with which I disagreed, however this did not detract from the way that the book was presented and written. For those who share Colson's particular view on 'the truth' this would undoubtedly be a very worthwhile book to read and enjoy
