Item description for The House That Jesus Built: A Welcome to Christianity by Dale Ralph Davis...
Overview People are often curious and occasionally apprehensive about what the church is like. Not many people come sliding out of a reformed pipeline and straight into a pew - they come from all over the religious and non-religious spectrum. We don't want people to be surprised in a bad way about what they will encounter - thus this book. Although written for a Presbyterian church, it does not assume that only Presbyterians are reformed, happily many Anglicans, Lutherans, Baptists and others would place themselves under the 'reformed' banner and can find help in this little book.

Reviews - What do customers think about House That Jesus Built, The?
An excellent introduction to the Christian faith Oct 20, 2007
In a age when Christianity is all to often seen as merely a personal matter for the individual, Ralph Davis shows the corporate nature of the Christian faith by starting with what a Reformed protestant church believes. Any church in the reformation tradition, whether Anglican, baptist or Presbyterian will be pleased with his description of the nature of the church , what she believes, what she is. The author then gives an excellent summary of the disciplines needed in the Christian life before he concludes with a challenge for the non-Christian reader to come to faith in Christ. in short this is an excellent brief introduction to Christian faith lived together as church.
