Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. Basic Christianity, 50th Anniversary Edition

"We must commit ourselves, heart and mind, soul and will, personally and unreservedly, to Jesus Christ. We must humble ourselves before him. We must trust him as our Savior and submit to him as our Lord; and then go on to take our place as loyal members of the church and responsible citizens in the community. This is basic Christianity, the theme of this book."

With these words, world-renowned preacher John Stott embarks on a compelling study that first defends the basic claims of Christianity and then defines the proper outworkings of those main beliefs in the daily lives of believers. Here is a sound, sensible guide for all who are seeking an intellectually satisfying presentation of the Christian faith.

Named one of the Top 100 Books of the Millennium by World magazine and listed among Christianity Today's Top 100 Books of the 20th Century, Basic Christianity has had huge impact on countless readers worldwide over the past fifty years. This special new edition continues the Stott legacy.

Some books are tethered to a particular time and age and are very helpful and useful at the time. But, the Lord, every so often, uses someone that seemingly transcends the time and helps us see the timeless. Stott's "Basic Christianity" is one of those books.

One of the best summaries of faith that could be done in 160 pages. Inspires a hunger to go deeper into a life of Jesus. As pertinent to the Christian today as it was 50 years ago.
