Customer Review

on 17 May 2005
I was wholly disappointed with this book, the series as a whole is brilliant but if you are genuinely interested in Christianity and finding out what Christians believe, this book really is not very helpful. It devotes little space to the central messages of Christianity and without this focus, there can be no coherent analysis of Christian practises. By quoting passasges from the Bible without considering their context, a somewhat distorted view is given, particularly in respect to the Biblical teachings on women. Whilst the views given may represent the ideas of a minority of Christians, they are certainly not a fair reflection of Christianity as a whole as found in the Bible.
If you want an introduction to Christian beliefs, a book like "Christianity Explored" by Rico Tice and Barry Cooper, gives a better, jargon-free analysis. I certainly found it very helpful.
