This is the revised version of the best-selling Christianity Explored book, written by Rico Tice and Barry Cooper, is a jargon-free introduction to Christianity.

Drawing from the book of Mark in the Bible the book explores who Jesus was, what his aims were, and what it means to follow him.

Concise, entertaining and honest, it's an ideal book for anyone with little or no experience of Christianity. It can be used to encourage people to join a Christianity Explored course, to consolidate what has been learned by a guest, or simply as a way of reaching those who would rather not come to church.

Anne Graham Lotz

Author of Just Give Me Jesus

Rico Tice and Barry Cooper skilfully relate timeless truth to our pluralistic, pop culture in a refreshingly relaxed and honest approach that draws the reader into the great adventure of discovering for himself who Jesus is. Using a secular approach to reach the secular mind, and based on Mark's biography of Jesus, Christianity Explored is logical, reasonable, humorous, easy to read - and true! For starters, I want six copies - one to keep and five to give away!

Christianity Explored is the best resource I have ever read for knowing Jesus Christ. It is clear, precise and very enjoyable.

John Stott

Here's what I really like about this book: it's honest, hiding nothing. It doesn't mince its words and tells it straight. It focuses on the authentic portrait of Jesus as painted in Mark's Gospel.

“Great for opening things up”

(Review written for 'One life. What's it all about? (ebook)')

What do you get someone showing interest in finding out more about Jesus Christ? This is a good starter! Reading the Bible is an alien experience for people today, so this book puts the Christianity Explored approach to Mark's Gospel into print form. Accessible and with links to CE website a useful pass-it-on.

“A must for the inquisitive sceptic.”

(Review written for 'One life. What's it all about? (ebook)')

This book explores and examines St Mark's Gospel and Jesus' life and teachings contained therein. Using a lot of relevant and contemporary anecdotes, he [Rico] explains that the human heart is fundamentally flawed and ultimately wicked. The only way to gain God's kingdom is by loving God wholeheartedly and forsaking all else to enter on our knees, full of repentance, with the unquestioning devotion and reliance on God's grace as a small child is dependent on its parents for everything. Jesus was sent to suffer and die for all our sins, and if we truly trust this to be the case and follow Jesus' life and example we can rejoice and join Christ's community, and mix with like minded Christians at church to partake of their love and strength and encouragement and guidance. A very compelling read. logically worked through and very in depth of all the Scriptures. A truly well researched document bringing in facts from a vast database of biblical knowledge. A must for the inquisitive sceptic.

“Excellent for anyone seeking God”

(Review written for 'One life. What's it all about? (ebook)')

This book faithfully presents the Gospel in a clear, concise, contemporary, interesting, and lucid way. I have given a copy to several people who are willing to search for the truth.

(Review written for 'One life. What's it all about?')

I bought this book to give to a group of Mums who were doing the Christianity Explored Course. I found it a good summary of all the material presented in the DVD and the course. It describes the same examples as the DVD and as such can be read to go over what has been covered.

“Excellent reading”

(Review written for 'One life. What's it all about?')

An excellent purchase. I attended this course through my local Church and this book enhances what I have learned.

(Review written for 'One life. What's it all about?')

I bought this book for some relatively new Christians and it was everything and more than I hoped it would be. Learnt a lot myself, it is in plain everyday language that is easy to read but doesn't stray away from Mark's Gospel.
Thoroughly recommend it to anyone however far they are along the Christian journey.

“Outstanding as an evangelism tool.”

(Review written for 'One life. What's it all about?')

This is a very enjoyable and readable book. The references to films and modern life really help the reader relate to what is being said while all the truths of the Gospel are faithfully stated.
For anyone who is searching about God & Christianity and is prepared to sit down and read,this is an invaluable introduction to the Christian faith.
The chapter on Jesus - His Death is so powerful. I am passing this on to any interested people I talk to.

“Excellent book to give away”

(Review written for 'One life. What's it all about?')

This is a great book for anyone who has been to a Christianity Explored course but it's also great for those who are a bit reluctant to come along. I gave away five copies after a church service and several of the people who took them have now asked to come to the next course.

It is very easy to read but clearly sets out the Christian gospel. And the chapter on Grace seems to have a particularly significant impact on people.

“Love it - brilliant introduction to Christianity”

(Review written for 'One life. What's it all about?')

I bought this as a replacement for one I was given by a Christian friend back when I wasn't a Christian. I love this book. It's incredibly clear, funny and truthful and it helped me go from 'interested' to 'informed' and certainly helped put me on the path to Christ. In fact, I love it so much I bought two copies - one for me, and one for my Dad who recently found faith. I can't recommend it enough.
