Top Customer Reviews
"Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction."
The preparation document for the upcoming Synod on the New Evangelization puts it even more simply:
"The goal of the transmission of faith is the realization of a personal encounter with Jesus Christ."
With that end in mind, Bert Ghezzi and David Nodar have written a superb guide. The chapters in Discover Christ are arranged in question and answer format, and are designed to walk non-believers into a relationship with Jesus. It tackles some of the biggest questions many non-Christians have like:
- What is the meaning of life?
- Why does Jesus matter?
- Why do I need a savior?
- Who is the Holy Spirit?
The book also covers basic elements of Christian discipleship like spiritual formation, celebrating the sacraments, participating in community, and spreading the Gospel themselves.
In short, Discover Christ is a compact guide to living the Christian life. Those strong in their faith might find it a bit simplistic, but Discover Christ is the perfect book for the new seeker or anyone wading in the shallows of faith.
