Christian Beliefs is designed for those who desire a basic understanding of Christian life and thought—any believer or non-believer should find this small volume to be useful in the discovery of meaning for living the good life.
Written by a professor of Philosophical Theology, Christian Beliefs is a multidimensional look at Christianity and the authority of the Bible. It considers the reality of sin and evil in the human and cosmic orders, but it also treats the grace and forgiveness of God through the light of faith affirmations. This book will go to the heart of historic faith of Christians without being intolerant of those who may differ on points of doctrine. Overall, it seeks to find a deeper understanding and commitment to one’s beliefs.
Christian Beliefs consists of two sections, the first being the basic foundations of Christianity, which covers the Bible as a source book and both the Old Testament and the New Testament. The second section moves through Christian beliefs interpretations, examining the coming of Christ, the love of God, and many more topics.
The first edition of Christian Beliefs was a request made by the Christian Education Department of the Mount Carmel Baptist Church in Washington, DC. It was widely received and used by a variety of individuals and groups on campuses and in churches. In the end, this is a book that aims to strengthen your faith in God and invite nonbelievers to learn more.
