In this simple straightforward book for the new-to-faith and the seeking-renewal-in-faith, the gentle yet direct words of John Stott explain the basic beliefs of the Christian faith.

The respected and loved thinker, writer and Bible scholar begins by showing that Jesus Christ really lived in history. He explains the reason for, and significance of, His life, message, death and resurrection. Concluding with a section on what it really means to become a Christian, he ends with what it actually means to live as a Christian.

The author describes basic Christianity in detail and then lays out a convincing plan of action for believers. He never lets you forget that we owe our forgiveness and reconciliation to the death of Christ.
