Item description for Christian Faith: The Basics by Walt Kallestad & W. Kallestad...
Overview All of us stand on the threshold of a new millennium, a new thousand-year era in the history of the world and humankind. Most of us, in North America and Europe at lease, live in a time of unprecendented technological gains in communication, transportation, medicine, and scientific discovery. We have a standard of living that the world has not seen in the previous millennia. But despite all the scientific and technological gains--or maybe even because of them--many people experience feelings of boredom, restlessness, emptiness, meaninglessness, and anxiety. There is a sense that something is missing--something essential for human happiness and fulfillment. And so people go on spritual quests, looking for something to give their lives meaning. In their spiritual searching, many are looking again at the centuries-old tradition of Christianity. If you are reading this book, perhaps you too are examining the Christian faith--either for the first time or looking again after having been disconnected from Christianity. Whether you've known God in your life for a long time, you're seeking to know God more intimately, or you're just curious to know what Christianity teaches, I want to encourage you to explore several questions with me: How can I know God? Who is this Jesus? Why bother about sin? How do I become a Christian? How do I live the Christian life? How do I grow as a Christian? Is there hope for the future? Truly exploring these questions means encountering God. Encounter changes us, whether it be an encounter with a person, an idea, or some aspect of the physical world. An encounter with the creator of the universe, who is actively and intimately involved in its day-to-day operation, has the power to change you profoundly and to enrich your life forever. I encourage you to be as open, honest, and objective in your inquiry, as I have tried to be in writing this book.
