17 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Andrew Young on 25 Sep 2006
Format: Paperback
This is a simple book by John Stott, which explains the basic beliefs of Christianity. Stott begins by showing us who Jesus Christ really was, and then goes on to explain the reason for and significance of His death. Stott then concludes with a section on what it really means to become a Christian, and then what it actually means to be a Christian.

This book is well written, easy to follow and simple to understand. It will clear up some misconceptions in the modern world as to what a true Christian really is. This is a good book, which has proven to be a blessing to many down through the years.

Format: Paperback
Stott describes basic Christianity in detail and then lays out a convincing plan of action for believers. He points out that we owe forgiveness and reconciliation to the death of Christ.
After the resurrection the Holy Spirit took the place of Jesus and next the Holy Spirit changed the apostles.
Stott reminds us that the claim that Christ can live in all of us is put forth in Galatians 2:20. Stott's book is a concise introduction to Christianity for beginners. It can also serve as a good refresher for those who need to review the basics.

Format: Paperback
A must read. Probably one of the best books on the basics of Christianity as Dr. Stott carefully lays out the foundations of the faith. Not a word is wasted. Could be a life changing book for many as it was for me.

Format: Paperback
I love all of Stott's books. A great insight for anyboby interested in learning about Christianity and commited Christians alike. He always presents a balanced and unjudgemental view whilst never compromising his belief.Maybe a little wordy in places,but he is an accademic so this is his style.However it doesn't detract from the overall enjoyment and worth of the book for all.

This is a very sound foundation for anyone who has just become a believer in Jesus Christ or for anyone who wants to understand what it means to be born again. John Stott writes in a very simple, easy to understand way and I would recommend it.
