The Christian Belief for Everyone series comprises five guides to the basic ideas of the Christian faith. Full of stories and helpful illustrations, these guides have been written primarily for ordinary churchgoers, though they will no doubt also appeal to interested readers outside the church. The approach Alister McGrath adopts is non-denominational, very similar to the 'mere Christianity' advocated by C. S. Lewis. Indeed, the series may be seen as a guide to 'mere Christianity', focusing clearly as it does on the life of faith. We look at why Christians believe what they do; how we can best understand these ideas, and the difference they make to the way we think about ourselves and our world.

This reader-friendly yet robust introduction to the Christian faith explores the essentials of Christianity and the impact they have on life, worldview, and witness. Written in an accessible and engaging voice for college-age readers, the book connects the biblical plotline, the Apostles' Creed, the comparative distinctiveness of Christianity, and life's big questions. The author shows how the Christian metanarrative speaks to questions about purpose, worth, ethics, personhood, and more, and helps readers understand what it means to be a Christian in a post-Christian world.

This book is not a formidable series of learned papers on abstruse theology, but a plain and coherent outline of the Christian faith, written by members of the Community of the Resurrection and intended for the ordinary educated layperson. There are no Hebrew or Greek words; scholarship will be found mainly in the notes. The central theme is the faith of the Resurrection. This is prepared for by essays on the relevance of the Old Testament, the Incarnation and the Cross. A chapter on the Resurrection of our Lord closes Part I. Part II contains a series of more reflective essays, looking back on what is involved in the claim for the Resurrection: arguments for the existence of God, the Christian doctrine of God, Creation and the Fall, the nature and work of the Holy Spirit. Part III considers the consequences of the Resurrection: the Church Worship in the Body, Baptism and Christian Unity, Prayer in the Body, and the Christian answer to pain and evil. Part IV deals with the consequences for the Church and the World: the secular challenge to the Church, the witness of the Church in an expanding World, Vocation, and the End of All Things.
