This book is scholarly written and designed primarily for university and seminary students who are beginning to read seriously about the nature of Christian theology. Students who do not have the opportunity to study theology in a formal setting but who take seriously a thoughtful understanding of Christian faith will also find this work accessible and invaluable. This book provides a summary of the basic ideas of what Christians believe and why they believe them. We are living in an unprecedented period of time of pluralistic thinking when Christian believers must know why they believe in Jesus Christ. This work is a friendly invitation to consider the importance and the truthfulness of Christian belief.
