A major shame in contemporary Christianity is the large number of ordinary Christians who are biblically illiterate. This robs them of their inheritance as believers and makes their witness to others often weak. In response, "Landscapes of Christianity" unpacks the history and truths of our Faith logically and powerfully, answering virtually every question ordinary church-goers ask, or are too embarrassed to ask for fear of being labeled ignorant of Scripture. Already praised by leaders in churches across America, this book offers a fascinating glimpse into God's redemptive plan for people, discussing intelligently, clearly, and impartially the debated issues that have separated Christians for centuries. Furthermore, it addresses (from the Bible) some of the great issues of this day as they relate to homosexuality among the clergy, abortion and the death of other innocents, euthanasia, and the relevance of Scripture in contemporary society. John MacArthur, world renowned Bible teacher, says: "I am stunned at the excellence and comprehensiveness. I can only pray that the Lord will find many uses for it." Others call the book, "compelling," and required reading for anyone who wants to have a fuller grasp of Christianity without denominational bias."

I found this book to be one of the few overviews of Christianity that is relatively free of denominational bias. I learned more here than I ever learned elsewhere. Such an easy and interesting read.
