Now in its sixth edition and fully revised in July 2016 by Canon John Young and Revd Dr Greg Hoyland, this paperback in the popular Teach Yourself… series has established itself as a standard text. The term ‘standard text’ might give the impression ‘dry as dust’. Dr David Hope’s comments (below) make clear that this is not the case.
“An exciting, engaging and intellectually serious book that gives a really comprehensive picture of how Christians behave, what they think and how they believe their faith makes a difference in today’s world. John Young offers us a first-class survey of doctrine and history along with a sympathetic account of prayer and ethics as Christians understand them.” Dr Rowan Williams, 104th Archbishop of Canterbury.
‘This is a well-researched, accessible guide to the central themes of the Christian faith. It is not only a useful resource to those exploring Christianity for the first time, but I’m sure experienced believers will find it a most invaluable point of reference.’
The Archbishop of York, John Sentamu
‘This important book … a warts and all presentation of the Christian faith. It is highly readable and gives the reader access to the heart of the Christian story’.
The Bishop of Liverpool, James Jones
Bishop Stephen Cottrell‘
The Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster, Cormac Murphy-O’Connor ‘…not only informs, it excites, and in doing so invites the reader on a journey of discovery’
Dr David Hope, former Archbishop of York
‘Excellent material … timely and right on target. There is a crying need for such a book.’
Bishop Michael Marshall
‘An amazing compilation … Brilliant!’
Dr Peter Brierley, Executive Director of Christian Research
