This book was a great in-depth look at the Christian faith. It is perfect for those who are new to Christianity or want an intense study of their belief. Be prepared to do a lot of work! It took me months to complete this book.

This book allows you to work with it and write/think about your faith. It gives a fairly simple guide but the results are far from simple. It's in-depth and every Christian would benefit from working through a copy. You will be able to examine yourself and at the same time learn of the beauty of God's love. It's a must buy :)

Even though growing up in the church should have thought me a lot of biblical principles, when I decided to say thank you to God and look at Jesus as a model for my life, I had very little of the word left in me. This book helps baby Christians and maybe seeking Tomases gather the Biblical groundwork of the faith.

A all encompassing, Christianity 101 type book that is great for new believers to gain a good foundation of biblical truth and for mature believers to be reminded of what the bible says about certain topics. Could be great for a disciplining tool.

This is a must read for Christians new or veterans. I have learned so many things while studying these scriptures and doing the lessons. Biblical foundations should be as much a part of our lives as Bible reading...every day.

Soon after Rice Broocks became a Christian as a third year university student, he discussed his faith with his brother Ben, an atheist, who was a third year law student. Though Rice was young in his faith, his simple answers to his brother’s questions led to Ben’s acceptance of Christ, and he baptized Ben later that day.

Since that day I’ve devoted my life to reaching out to an unbelieving, skepti
