Overview

Christian Basics is a classic introduction to the Christian faith and a refresher course in Christianity's essentials. Respected author John Stott answers questions such as:

What is Christianity all about?

The essence of the Christian faith is not a creed, a code of conduct, or a collection of worship services. Christian Basics explains how Christianity revolves around the person of Jesus Christ and our relationship to him.

What does a Christian believe?

Christian Basics presents summaries of Christian beliefs, structured around an affirmation of the three Persons of the Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

How do I live as a Christian in a complex world?

Jesus summed up God's moral law in terms of love—not sentimental or selfish, but strong and sacrificial. Christian Basics explains how to build up your spiritual strength through a disciplined life in the Spirit.

This accessible guide includes end-of-chapter discussion questions, group activities, and suggestions for further reading and Bible study.
