Keith Ward's latest contribution is a broad overview of the Christian faith which will fascinate Christians, those of other faiths and those of none. He takes a non-technical and non- confrontational approach. Recognizing that there are many differing interpretations of Christianity, has approached each of the doctrinal points from three perspectives.This is a book for lay people, especially those who have been intrigued by Ward's previous books and wondered about the overall framework of his beliefs. He covers the major points of Christianity - Creation, Evil, The Soul, Jesus, The Atonement, The Trinity, Prayer, Eternal Life and others. Many chapters will be of interest to non-Christians as a new perspective on the problems which have troubled mankind down the ages. Ward's Anglo-Catholic background does show through, but he tries to be as pluralistic as possible within a book of this size. Although it is only 179 pages, he manages a depth of profundity often absent in much larger books. This is a stimulating and eye-opening read, well worth the effort which it demands.

This is a refreshing and challenging overview of the key doctrines of Christianity which does not settle for simply repeating the tired and unconvincing mantras of traditional orthodoxy but recognises that there are competing views on almost all the important questions and sets them out relatively simply for the uninitiated. Buy a copy for yourself and one for any of your conservative evangelical friends who would certainly benefit from the wisdom it contains. (It is the same book as Christianity A Beginner's Guide)

It came recommended as an introduction to Christian Theology at a basic level. Due to pressure of time I have not been able to do other than skim through it to date.
