Book Description

21 Feb 2013 Christian Belief/Everyone Vol1
The Christian Belief for Everyone series comprises five guides to the basic ideas of the Christian faith. Full of stories and helpful illustrations, these guides have been written primarily for ordinary churchgoers, though they will no doubt also appeal to interested readers outside the church. The approach Alister McGrath adopts is non-denominational, very similar to the 'mere Christianity' advocated by C. S. Lewis. Indeed, the series may be seen as a guide to 'mere Christianity' focusing clearly as it does on the life of faith. We look at why Christians believe what they do; how we can best understand these ideas, and the difference they make to the way we think about ourselves and our world. The first volume, Faith and the Creeds, concentrates on the nature of faith and the history and relevance of the Creeds, in a thrilling reflection on what we really mean when we say 'I believe' This is excellent preparation for exploring the leading themes of the Creeds in four subsequent volumes: The Living God, Lord and Saviour - Jesus of Nazareth, Spirit of the Living God and The Christian Life and Hope.

Product Description


' 'THANK you, Lord, for Alister McGrath' has been the heartfelt prayer of many theological students at different levels over the past three decades . . . They have adored McGrath's astonishing gifts for clarity, logical argument, and apt illustration. Again and again, he elegantly performs that central task of any teacher: to enable his students and readers, starting from the familiar ground of what they already know, to go on to explore new territory, and begin to see an expanded horizon.' --Church Times

'. . . written with general readers in mind, so does not assume great theological literacy and is full of anecdotes and references to popular culture . . . Good value as usual from this leading scholar and communicator.' --Christianity

'Throughout McGrath writes skilfully and with style . . . an exciting and enjoyable guide to the basics of Christianity.' --New Directions

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking and inspirational 16 Nov 2013
By Pilgrim
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have always loved the Creeds and bought Alister McGrath's book after previewing a chapter on my Kindle app. I had expected insight and knowledge from McGrath (and got that) but felt I got more too - a book which engaged my heart and my imagination as well as my brain. Shades of C S Lewis.
