Item Description...
A unique, one-stop guide to the Christian faith that provides foundational truths with a knowing wit and refreshingly honest perspective.
Your parents would approve, but don't let that stop you.

Many of us can remember a time when faith was a simple thing: We went to church at least once a week, had strong ties in the youth group, and shared in our parents' beliefs. But there comes a moment in our faith journeys when we must find our own faith in Christ.

All of a sudden, we discovered that Christianity is much bigger than our church, our denomination, our perspective. And somehow during this transition, we found that a very simple message had become much more complicated.

Popular author Matthew Paul Turner presents a unique reference guide to the basics of the Christian faith. From historical facts, to the sacraments, to knowing Presbyterians from Pentecostals, Matthew provides foundational truths and practical insights that are infused with his knowing wit and honesty. So whether you're a new believer, or someone who's had his or her own 'section' in the pew for years, you'll gain a deeper and more personal understanding.

What You Didn't Learn from Your Parents About: Christiantiy  Oct 31, 2006
There is a fine line between being witty and being a smart elek, and Matthew Paul Turner has made an art of carefully walking that line. His newest tightrope act, "What You Didn't Learn from Your Parents About: Chrisitanity" is an enlightening, yet playful exploration of the world of the Christian sub-culture.
This is not uncharted territory for Turner, who authored, "The Christian Culture Survival Guide," but it is new scenary in a familiar land. This examination could be veiwed controversial considering some of the targets at which Turner fires his flaming arrows of observation. No one is safe: Binney Hinn, the Baptists, Christian music, even your grandmother are put under the microscope.
One aspect of the book that can repel some readers and at the same time attract others is the format. This book reads as if it were written by someone with ADHD for someone with ADHD. There is the main narrative, of course, but this is often interrupted by side-bars, other stories, thoughts by the publishers and even charts.
If you, like myself, have difficulty focusing on one topic for an extended period of time, this hyperactivity may break up the monotony. Not that the book ever becomes monotonous; there isn't any opportunity for it. The chapters are relatively short and easily read. The added information can be read after finishing the chapter or as you come to them.
Overall, the book is an intellectual, yet critical examination of the state of American Christianity: the good, the bad, and the really bad. According to Turner's web site, there are three other books in the "What You Didn't Learn from Your Parents About..." series. The topics include sex, politics, and money: all of the things your parents taught you to never bring up in public. "What You Didn't Learn from Your Parents About: Christianity" is a great book for anyone who has ever scanned the landscape of American Christianity only to be left confused, cynical, or jaded.
Great For Discussions  Oct 16, 2006
Matthew has done it again! This book is Christianity in a nutshell, which made me happy. It is full of the main highlights and the core beliefs of what Christianity is all about...of course along with random humor from the author...A must read for anyone who HAS no clue what Christianity is about and wants to learn it without having to pull out the BORING commentaries or for anyone who just needs to be refreshed on Christianity as a whole.
