"I first read Basic Christianity as a new Christian in college. I feasted on every word. The blend of head and heart, soul and strength, marks me to this day. It provided a rudder of truth that would long keep me on course amid the gale-force winds of our day. Later in life, when I had the opportunity of meeting the author, the book took on an even richer texture--for it was clear that the words of the book were a reflection of the life that he led. I cannot commend this book, or the life behind it, highly enough." (James Emery White, pastor, professor and author of Serious Times)
"Anything John Stott says is worth listening to. Anything he writes is worth reading. Basic Christianity is not only a classic must-read for every believer, it is truly a blessing preserved on the written page for the enrichment of this generation and those to come." (Anne Graham Lotz)
"'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." (Michael Card)
"[This slim volume] has introduced more people to Christ than any book I know other than the Bible." (James W. Sire, author of The Universe Next Door) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
