Being Christian Sep 20, 2008
As a relatively new Christian (just shy of 2 years), I found this book to be well worth the purchase price. The two editorial reviews offered by this site are entirely accurate in their praises for the book. It's really well-written and the content flows extremely well, despite being in a question-and-answer format. That surprised me -- how well the authors were able to succinctly answer a wide variety of questions so seamlessly. The tone is reverent but not heavy, and even quite playful at times (which shouldn't be surprising if you are at all familiar with John Shore's writing style). The answers are straighforward, thorough and clear, and yes, they really do address just about everything you'd think to ask. Appropriate Bible references are given for nearly every answer. In the month I've owned the book I have both read it end-to-end and returned to it for random answers. The sections outlining the basics on choosing a Bible translation and a church are outstanding treatments of two very important topics. Overall, this book is practical, relevant, informative and entertaining. I'm donating a copy to my church's library, and there are a few folks on my Christmas list who I think would enjoy it as well.
