Westminster John Knox Press Introducing Christianity: Exploring the Bible, Faith, and Life

This introductory-level book on Christianity looks clearly at what the church believed and taught throughout its history. Hard questions about the Bible, theology, and the Christian life are dealt with from the perspective of faith. As author, veteran scholar, and pastor James Howell puts it, "Great hope rests in thinking through these questions, and this book wrestles with them." Howell knows the questions people ask and is adept at answering them. In doing so, he explores what it means to live as a Christian, as part of the church community, and also what it means to live with the hope Christian faith provides, even for those who "previously believed there was no hope." Includes study questions for discussion.

Personal and Modern Bias seem to dominate the text. Not recommended for serious Christians.

I can't be very objective because I couldn't get past the first chapter which includes a subtopic entitled "Imperfection in the Bible." Included within that ominous heading is the statement: "The Bible is not inspired in the sense that God whispered the text into a scribe's ear who wrote it all down before it could be somehow tainted by humanity." I feel so sad for Mr. Howell. I pray he learns what the Word of God really is and that God whispers in his ear.
