Overview

Being Christian. What does that mean? And how do you do it? // However you answer those questions-even if the answer is "I don't have a clue!-you need this book. Here Steve Arterburn and John Shore tackle some simple, but also complex, questions that just about everyone has about being Christian. And they do so using everyday language. Here you'll find real questions, like: // How do I know God loves me personally? Is there any sin that's beyond forgiving? Will being a Christian help me get rid of my bad habits? Why are there so many Christian denominations? Should I join a Bible study group? // Wherever you happen to be along the faith continuum, this book is for you. For some, it will be an introduction to Christian beliefs and practices. For others, it will be an in-depth review. The authors say, "We asked a lot of people, and did a lot of thinking and praying, in order to come up with the questions about Christianity and its attending issues that we feel even the most experienced Christians sometimes want answered."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Arterburn (Every Man's Battle series) and Shore (I'm OK-You're Not) have designed a thoroughly comprehensive and refreshingly engaging primer on foundational Christian tenets. Readers from across the spectrum of Christian experience (newbies, veterans and seekers alike) will find this biblical question-and-answer format compellingly practical. Although it is written from an evangelical perspective, other Christians will learn from it, too, and appreciate the authors' clear approach. The book addresses specific, often thorny questions: how is God simultaneously Father, Son and Spirit? Why does God allow evil to exist? Why must Christians pray for their enemies? How are they to understand "fallen" Christian leaders? What is original sin? And how do confession, repentance and Christ's atonement and resurrection play into the Christian's daily faith journey? Arterburn and Shore further enhance their excellent guide with wit, humor and gentle pokes at the church's foibles. Whether individuals are just wondering about God or serious in their religious pursuit, this book is a valuable resource. (Sept.)
