What People are saying about this

Michael Card
"'Who is Jesus Christ?' and 'What does it mean to follow him?' These are the basic questions that need to be first sincerelyasked and then meaningfully answered. They are the fundamental questions the Gospels ask and to which they give the perfect answer. From Augustine to Bonhoeffer, from The Confessions to The Cost of Discipleship,great theologians with pastors' hearts have asked and answered these two basic questions for their own age. In our time, it has been John Stott and his Basic Christianity."
Rick Warren
"There are a few landmark books that everyone in the world should read. This is one of the rare few. In the twenty-first century, you cannot afford to ignore this book! Whether you are a skeptic, raised in another faith, spiritual seeker or Christian believer, you need to know why 2.3 billion people call themselves 'Christians.' You need to know what they believe and why they believe it. This book is especially essential for leaders in business, government, academics, media, entertainment, journalism and other fields that work directly with people. To be able to have an intelligent conversation with one-third of our world's population, you need to understand their worldview. This is the classic introduction to the faith that has transformed billions of lives."
Rick Warren, author, The Purpose Driven Life, pastor, Saddleback Church
James Emery White
"I first read Basic Christianity as a new Christian in college. I feasted on every word. The blend of head and heart, soul and strength, marks me to this day. It provided a rudder of truth that would long keep me on course amid the gale-force winds of our day. Later in life, when I had the opportunity of meeting the author, the book took on an even richer texture--for it was clear that the words of the book were a reflection of the life that he led. I cannot commend this book, or the life behind it, highly enough."
James Emery White, pastor, professor and author of Serious Times
Anne Graham Lotz
"Anything John Stott says is worth listening to. Anything he writes is worth reading. Basic Christianity is not only a classic must-read for every believer, it is truly a blessing preserved on the written page for the enrichment of this generation and those to come."
John Ortberg
"John Stott's Basic Christianity is a simple, clear, deep explanation of our faith. I am so grateful for the lucid elegance of this invitation to follow Jesus."
John Ortberg, pastor and author, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church
James W. Sire
"[This slim volume] has introduced more people to Christ than any book I know other than the Bible."
James W. Sire, author of The Universe Next Door
