"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)
"'Who is Jesus Christ?' and 'What does it mean to follow him?' These are the basic questions that need to be first sincerely asked 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."
