Reviews - What do customers think about Christianity: A Beginner's Guide (Beginner's Guides)?
A well-paced and lucid introduction to Christianity May 26, 2001
Ward's achievement suceeds in being clear and simple, concise, and demonstrates well the plurality present within Christianity. He achieves a fairly balanced presentation of a Christianity full of different views which are simultaneously connected to one another in a symbiotic theological and historical relation. Though sometimes his theological preferences surface, this is often subtle and often his biases remained fairly submerged. Beginners will find this book a helpful introduction to the Christian faith that is neither pendantic nor emotional blibber blabber. I highly recommend this to any one, believer or not, who is interested in exploring the vistas of Christian dogma.
The best one volume introduction to Christianity. Feb 20, 2001
Professor Ward of Oxford University has done a remarkable job of showing the variety of Christian beliefs in relation to its main doctrines such as incarnation, salvation etc. in a very clear, objective and readable way. I highly recommend it as possibly the best guide to the subject.
