Probably the best-selling Australian Christian book of our generation John Chapman's clear, persuasive and engaging presentation of the news of Jesus is as fresh, and readable as ever.

Un livre qui m'a énormément aidé au tout début de ma vie chrétienne (livre offert par un ancien de mon église de l'époque). Je le recommande pour tout ceux qui viennent de découvrir la foi chrétienne et qui veulent en savoir plus.

An interesting and insightful look at the author's conversion and subsequent way of living life as a Christian.
Full of information for those hoping to become a Christian and peppered with anecdotes and stories about how to apply Christianity to modern life.
Reading this as an atheist, it changes nothing for me and at times sounded a bit saccharine but was an interesting read all the same and am sure is a good tool for those hoping to or the newly converted Christian.
