Reviews

  • Great Analysis of the Christian Faith

    5
    By Davidjscott88
    As someone who truly enjoys reading a good study on the subject, this book lays it all out perfectly. What I've enjoyed most about this book is that it goes through all of the fundamental subjects of faith, not necessarily having a concrete stance on certain set beliefs, but bringing in the believes all Christians have that also stays true to Scripture. Anyone who has been wanting to learn more about the Christian faith and what we believe, this is a fantastic book to start with. Although I wouldn't say I agree with every little tidbit McGrath says, it's a very simple read and it allows you to understand parts of theology that can usually be confusing.
