Publishers Description

People today are searching for something to believe in. How can they choose between conflicting belief systems and find answers to their questions? In this book, Stanley Grenz presents the central tenets of Christian faith clearly and concisely, answering the most common questions and helping readers strengthen their understanding of Christianity.

From Publishers Weekly
Grenz, professor of theology and ethics at Carey Theological College in Vancouver, British Columbia, places Christianity in the context of competing belief systems for today's seekers. Grenz presents the central tenets of the Christian faith clearly and concisely, conveying the major doctrines of the faith--God, humanity, Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Church and last things. Grenz poses questions that many Christians ask of their faith--"Why believe at all?"; "Who is Jesus and what did he do?"--to direct his study of Christian doctrine. Grenz contends that many North Americans now revel in God's immanence within the universe so much that God meshes almost completely with the world. Grenz contends that the Christian understanding of God actually seeks a balance between immanence and transcendence. Grenz argues that humankind can reach the goal of its quest only by turning from self toward the triune God as we leave behind our old identity and discover who we are created to be within the fellowship of the community of Christ. Grenz's guide is an accessible introduction to the Christian faith. (June)

Reviews - What do customers think about What Christians Really Believe?

Middle-of-the-road, evangelical apologetic  Aug 7, 2000
Stanley Grenz aims this work ostensibly at the North American religious "seeker." Structured in seven chapters, each addressing an existential question that Grenz thinks most North Americans (it is a very culture-bound work) ask at one point or another, Grenz attempts to guide the reader through the hodgepodge of contemporary "spiritualities," hopefully ending up within the fold of orthodox evangelical Christianity. The reader who is already well-versed in the culture of evangelical Christianity will find little that is unfamiliar, though Grenz does offer a somewhat nuanced view of the meaning behind Jesus Christ's death and resurrection. Pop culture references abound, in a worthy attempt at contemporary relevance. Curiously--perhaps in an attempt to avoid sounding too scary--the word "sin" is not mentioned once. One unwelcome tendency is Grenz' propensity for making statements--such as calling the Bible the "sourcebook" for Christians, or referring to various beliefs as "erroneous"--without adequately backing them up or elaborating what he means or why he means it.

This is not, by any measure, a bad book, and evangelical Christians ought to find much to celebrate about it. However, it is a bit too brief on some key points. And the title's implicit assertion that Grenz gives voice to the theology and beliefs of all Christians is, to me, rather off-putting.
