WHEN PILGRIM Learning Community asked people from every presbytery what they wanted to learn about, the most common answer was about how to share our faith. It seems that many Christians while committed to their faith, wonder just how to go about sharing that faith with others.

Perhaps this is because we don’t really know how we would go about explaining what we believe and why we believe it in a way that people outside the church can understand.

If you’ve ever wondered how to share your faith, I highly recommend this little book.

Part of the simple faith series Faith sets down the nature of faith in our contemporary world in fifteen concise chapters which cover the big questions of faith such as Who or what is God for me?

How do we relate to God? Is God ultimately a certainty or a mystery? What does it mean to follow Jesus? It also includes questions for reflection at the end of each chapter which could be used as the basis of a small group study.

Concise but not dense, simple but certainly not simplistic, Faith is a treasure!

It sets down the fundamentals of the Christian faith in such a way that it will help us as Christians put into words what it is that Christianity is about – and why we believe.

It will also give us a way to share our faith in a way that is relatively jargon free and authentic.
