Christianity begins with God and ends with God. It is a story for all to know and understand.
In this personal and easy-to-read book, James Sire offers a basic introduction to the foundational truths held by Christians at all times and in all places. The chapters are organized around a simple scheme: creation, fall, redemption, new life in Christ, and glorification. In this expanded edition, Sire added a chapter on the person of Jesus.
With study questions for personal or group use, this is the ideal first book for seekers and believers who want to understand the central teachings of the Bible.
