Customer Review

on January 17, 2004
This book is an outstanding introduction. It's inspiring and offers a fresh perspective on the core of Christian belief. Its paradigm is the historical covenantal approach to Christian belief. It is a better introduction than any book I've read because it does not delve into the intricacies of exegesis or other complex analysis and yet you are aware that there is more you should know. It gives one an intellectual foundation on what it means to be Christian.
Of course it's not an all-encompassing tome - well good, that's not what is needed to start. Its title says most of what it's trying to accomplish. Though the title might seem pedantic, it tersely and unpretentiously expresses its basic thesis, and does not indicate a lack of sophistication on the defense of the thesis.
It would be a great read for a 12-14 yr. old. Yet, I read it when I was 20+ and I thought it was brilliant while concise. After reading it you will read on with a great foundation. I still like to go back and read it. It is a model of conciseness.
