Excellent explanation of the development of the Christian Faith and tradition. A "must read" for any who want to understand their faith tradition.

This book could be a life changing experience:

It’s always amazed me how ill-informed the general public is when it comes to world religions. It is also surprising that so many people who fill our church pews on Sundays, refer to themselves as Christians, but have very little knowledge of the faith they embrace. It seems they adopt their faiths by birth and just go along with the status quo and never really question the legitimacy of their beliefs.

I just finished reading “Remedial Christianity,

Religion professor and theologian Paul Alan Laughlin takes the reader on a methodical journey through Christian scholarship primarily from a historical-critical perspective. The information is clearly presented and much of it will undoubtedly be a shock to many Christian readers who, as the book's subtitle suggests, will largely be unfamiliar with many of the facts of Christianity's history.

When I read a book of this nature I prefer to just get the facts with no alternative agenda. Laughlin fail

I loved this book...well, it's actually a textbook, but I read it cover to cover. The information contained is straightforward and actually struck me as very unbiased in its presentation. Many of the questions that are raised for me, and many of the issues that cause me to doubt some integral Christian beliefs are directly and openly addressed. I definitely think that everyone who claims to be Christian should read this book and get to know the religion inside and out, instead of blindly accepti ...more

If you’re looking for a good overview on many of teachings taught in mainstream Christianity, and you wish to use your new found understanding to berate your fellow Christian friends or improve and better define your own Christian faith this is the book. It’s easy to read and easy to use for devils, angels and people who don’t believe in either.

This book is amazing! I have spoke with the author of this book who is a professor at a liberal arts school, Otterbein University. This is a great book to re-examine christianity and its validity. It is clearly written and an easy read. It makes you think and ponder reality. I would recommend this book to everyone.

Frustrated that his college students thought they understood Christianity because of dim memories of superficial platitudes from Sunday school, Laughlin wrote this book as an introductory text on Christianity. As an added bonus, it features cartoons and is often downright hilarious. I adore this book. Guaranteed to offend all traditional and mainstream Christians.

Wonderful book. Very open minded commentary on biblical concepts in a wonderfully easy to understand and non-judge mental (if that's possible with the bible) manner. Recommended reading as alternative interpretations of the bible.

The subtitle says it all -- to paraphrase: "What (Everyone) Should Know about the Faith, but Probably Doesn't."
