Item description for Exploring Christianity: The Bible, Faith, and Life by James C. Howell...
In the last decade or so, people who had moved away from Christianity in search of more intellectually satisfying religious traditions have begun moving back to the Christian traditions of their youth. As they return to the church, they bring with them questions about the nature of the Christian faith, the nature of the Bible, and the meaning and value of Christian doctrine. Exploring Christianity is for these people, and for those who have been in the pews for some time, who want to establish faith and practices that are both vital and intellectually satisfying.
James C. Howell writes for those who are approaching Christianity with an intellectual hunger. Based on sound scholarship, but written in very accessible language, Howell helps readers explore the Bible, the historical Jesus, the historical spread of Christianity, Christian doctrines and morality, as well as the ways in which Christians live together as Church and make a difference in the world.

Reviews - What do customers think about Exploring Christianity: The Bible, Faith, and Life?
Educated, Open-minded, thought-provoking book Aug 15, 2005
My friend's old pastor wrote this book and so I was a bit skeptical upon reading it, but after a few pages I was completely hooked. With an open-minded non-demanding style, Howell tackles the issues most often asked about Christianity in a way that revives both believers and non-believers and does what most Christians somehow fail to do.. pull others closer.
I recommend this book for every single person who's ever had a question about Christianity.
