Reviews - What do our customers think?
New believer  Sep 6, 2009
I bought this book for my husband for Christmas. It took him some time to get into it but once he did, he has really enjoyed it and has learned a lot! It gives lots of information for a new believer to understand the Bible and Christianity.
 
Tremendous overview for new/young Christians  May 7, 2009
This book is excellent, given the purpose it was written. It covers the broadest categories of Christian doctrine giving historical examples and development. What is noteworthy also is the fact that the topics are compared and contrasted to contemporary trends and thinking. For a younger audience, the many pictures give the reader a "real world" vantage point to further bring the text to a point of comprehension. I will be using this book as the text for a senior theology class I teach in a Christian high school.
 
a very good reference for both pastors and laypersons  Feb 25, 2009
I would like to send this review in response to the first reviewer that he did not comment on the book at all but mis-judged the editors by their standard, common and acceptable use of the word 'christian' for both Catholic and Protestants.

This book really covered a wide range of topics from a broad evangelical view. It is useful to me as a pastor to introduce the faith and doctrine to my congregations.
 
Not for the non-critical reader  Dec 29, 2008

Not for the non-critical believer.

Both editors are signers of the pagan Evangelicals and Catholics Together document and it shows in the book.

Roman Catholicism is wrongly recognised as a *Christian* denomination in the writings.
