Two thousand years after the crucifixion of Jesus, Christianity has a greater number of followers than any other religion in the world. What are its essential beliefs? Where did they come from?

Here is an authoritative, comprehensive, and easy to understand survey of Christian beliefs---their origins, their development, and their significance for us today. After an initial historical overview, the book is divided into six major chapters. Spanning the full breadth of Christian teaching and doctrine, the chapters explore in detail the following topics: 1.Faith 2.God 3.Jesus 4.Salvation 5.The Church 6.Christian Hope Other features of this book include: *Expert information written in highly accessible language *Over sixty mini-articles contain more detailed information on subjects ranging from the nativity in Christian art to postmodernity, from the origins of the creeds to Christianity and social justice, from human sexuality to the problem of pain *Nearly 100 full-color illustrations shed additional light on the extensive range of topics *An anthology of excerpts from key Christian thinkers through the ages Definitive in its scope, the Zondervan Handbook of Christian Beliefs is a sweeping manifesto of the Christian faith that will deepen the knowledge and understanding of every reader.

Reviews - What do customers think about Zondervan Handbook Of Christian Beliefs?

New believer  Sep 6, 2009
I bought this book for my husband for Christmas. It took him some time to get into it but once he did, he has really enjoyed it and has learned a lot! It gives lots of information for a new believer to understand the Bible and Christianity.
Tremendous overview for new/young Christians  May 7, 2009
This book is excellent, given the purpose it was written. It covers the broadest categories of Christian doctrine giving historical examples and development. What is noteworthy also is the fact that the topics are compared and contrasted to contemporary trends and thinking. For a younger audience, the many pictures give the reader a "real world" vantage point to further bring the text to a point of comprehension. I will be using this book as the text for a senior theology class I teach in a Christian high school.
a very good reference for both pastors and laypersons  Feb 25, 2009
I would like to send this review in response to the first reviewer that he did not comment on the book at all but mis-judged the editors by their standard, common and acceptable use of the word 'christian' for both Catholic and Protestants.

This book really covered a wide range of topics from a broad evangelical view. It is useful to me as a pastor to introduce the faith and doctrine to my congregations.
Not for the non-critical reader  Dec 29, 2008

Not for the non-critical believer.

Both editors are signers of the pagan Evangelicals and Catholics Together document and it shows in the book.

Roman Catholicism is wrongly recognised as a *Christian* denomination in the writings.
