Description

How have Christians come to believe what they do? Now more than ever, in an increasingly secularized generation, there is a need for clear explanation of the unique features of Christian belief. This well-established, highly-regarded Lion handbook has been fully revised, restructured, redesigned and rewritten by a new international team of contributors - with all these revisions carried out with the needs and interests of a new generation of readers in mind. Key features of The New Lion Handbook: Christian Belief include: * Major chapters on Faith, God, Jesus, Salvation, the Church and Christian Hope * Over sixty panels on subjects from the origins of the creeds to postmodernity * Expert authorship writing at an accessible level * Takes account of the differences in Christian belief across traditions * Over one hundred full-colour illustrations
