Reseña del editor
Named a "Book of the Century" by Christianity Today"If Jesus was not God in human flesh, Christianity is exploded," writes John Stott. "We are left with just another religion with some beautiful ideas and noble ethics; its unique distinction has gone."Who is Jesus Christ? If he is not who he said he was, and if he did not do what he said he had come to do, the whole superstructure of Christianity crumbles in ruin. Is it plausible that Jesus was truly divine? And what would that mean for us?John Stott's clear, classic book examines the historical facts on which Christianity stands. Here is a sound, sensible guide for all who seek an intellectually satisfying explanation of the Christian faith.
Biografía del autor
John R. W. Stott (1921-2011) has been known worldwide as a preacher, evangelist and communicator of Scripture. For many years he served as rector of All Souls Church in London, where he carried out an effective urban pastoral ministry. A leader among evangelicals in Britain, the United States and around the world, Stott was a principal framer of the landmark Lausanne Covenant (1974). His many books have sold millions of copies around the world and in dozens of languages. Stott's best-known work, Basic Christianity, has sold two million copies and has been translated into more than 60 languages. Other titles include The Cross of Christ, Understanding the Bible, The Contemporary Christian, Evangelical Truth, Issues Facing Christians Today, The Incomparable Christ, Why I Am a Christian and Through the Bible Through the Year, a daily devotional. He has also written eight volumes in The Bible Speaks Today series of New Testament expositions. Whether in the West or in the Two-Thirds World, a hallmark of Stott's ministry has been expository preaching that addresses the hearts and minds of contemporary men and women. Stott was honored byTime magazine in 2005 as one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World" and was named in the Queen's New Years Honours list as Commander of the Order of the British Empire. In 1969, Stott founded the Langham Trust to fund scholarships for young evangelical leaders from the Majority World. He then founded the Evangelical Literature Trust, which provided books for students, pastors and theological libraries in the Majority World. These two trusts continued as independent charities until 2001, when they were joined as a single charity: the Langham Partnership. Langham's vision continues today to see churches in the Majority World equipped for mission and growing to maturity in Christ through nurturing national movements for biblical preaching, fostering the creation and distribution of evangelical literature, and enhancing evangelical theological education.

The book was well packaged and came in the stated time period. The condition was exactly as stated.
There is some basic apologetics, but there is much more as well. It contains a lot of basic Christian doctrines and some great insights. The author shows that it matters what one thinks about spiritual issues as well as why it matters. He teaches a lot about the character and nature of God.
Some of the topics that he addresses are that people do not seek God without God seeking them first, that the primary purpose of the Gospel is not an invitation to man, but rather a statement about what God has done for us through Christ, that God will only be found by those who really seek Him, the importance of humility in the spiritual quest, that many who belong to the 'visible Church', are not necessarily members of the real church, and much more.
This is really a powerhouse that should be read by spiritual seekers, those who are already Christians, and pretty much everyone else. At the very least, from an educational standpoint, any reader can learn "why 2.3 billion people call themselves 'Christians'" as Rick Warren states in the foreward.
As a Bible teacher for many years, I find that re visiting this book and thinking about the basics over and over again, helps me consider the depth of Jesus sacrifice and how important it is to clearly communicate these truths to others.
This book is not only for those who know very little about Christianity, it is for the mature believer who is seeking a deeper and more intimate relationship with Jesus.
