I’ve given away over a dozen hardcopies of this book to people in my church, and each year people ask if I have more. This short book is easily approachable and meant to be understood even if you have little or no theological training. This book was written in the hope that those who seek truth may find common ground in a commitment to Christ as He is made known to us through God's truthful Word.
