With over two billion adherents worldwide, Christianity is the world’s largest religion. However, with a multitude of denominations, and a huge variety of opinions on many of its central tenets, it can be difficult to obtain a balanced overview of the faith. Renowned theologian and bestselling author Keith Ward draws from his vast array of experience and knowledge to provide a unique and authoritative introduction for the simply curious and for those seeking a deeper understanding of this complex faith. Examining differing Christian perspectives on fifteen major themes which range from Creation to conceptions of the Trinity, Ward reveals a religion which is united by a common belief, despite being stunningly multifaceted, as he encourages readers to think creatively about a tradition whose impact has been felt in the most remote areas of the planet.

Although this is called a beginner's guide I think that this little book more useful if the reader already has some knowledge of Christian theology and beliefs....the Creed. I found it useful to identify various ways of viewing Christian belief. The division of each belief topic into three Christian views of it is a bit artificial but still useful for analytical purposes. It has helped me to refine my own conclusions regarding Christology/theology.
