John Stott's classic introduction to the Christian faith.
'Jesus certainly existed. His existence as an historical figure is vouched for by pagan as well as Christian writers,' says John Stott.
Who was Jesus? Why was he crucified? Did he really rise from the dead?
We need answers to these key questions in order to understand the basics of Christianity. The author offers a clear and full explanation, showing what it means to be a Christian today.
