World-renowned scholar and preacher John R. Stott embarks on a compelling course of study that first defends the fundamental claims of Christianity and then defines the proper outworking of these basic beliefs in the daily lives of believers.
Here is a sound, sensible guide for those who are seeking an intellectually satisfying presentation of the Christian faith.

A Classic on the Doctrines of the Christian Faith
I decided to read Basic Christianity because I always see it on lists for books that we should read. It is a short book that was first published 50 years ago, but its words will be read for many more generations to come. This modern classic begins with a focus on God the Father and follows with Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Stott's next major topic he addresses is the unpopular topic of sin and later how Christ conquered sin. The last part of the book is how we are to respond to Christ's invitation. This book tells us how we must commit all of ourselves to Jesus Christ. This means trusting Him as our Savior AND submitting to Him as our Lord. To be an ambassador of Christ we must adopt a Biblical worldview so we can have an eternal impact on this world. To God be the glory forever!
Great but disturbing little book
The reader is wonderful but the book is disturbing at least it was for me. It helped me build a stronger faith buy also made me painfully aware of my own shortcomings. I will never be quite as comfortable with myself after reading it. Whether that's a good thing or not I'm not sure. That being said I have not been able to stop thinking about it which makes it a very good book. The reader really enhances the experience. I highly recommend this little audio book.
