We live in an age where ‘friendships’ are prolific and contact is constant. But are all of these people really our friends? The bond of Christian friendship is different. Built on our unity with Christ, these are real life, flesh and blood relationships – both sacred and sacrificial. Christina Fox offers insight into how we can weave friendships that last through any season and reflect Christ to the world.
“‘I would never have chosen to write a book on the prayer life. What a subject – and how hypocritical one feels in making the attempt! This cannot be an exhaustive treatise; the very idea that anyone could cover the whole field of prayer in a kind of technical manual is ridiculous. But there might be some simple guidelines in these pages that can be put to use in your churches and fellowship groups. I have deliberately tried to let each chapter stand on its own, so that the reader can feel easy about dipping into the pages at random.”
Richard Bewes in his introduction

‘You could become the greatest living painter. Your paintings would be treasured for ever.’Those were the words Lilias Trotter heard from John Ruskin, one of the world’s most established art critics. She had to make a choice between her talent and her calling. Both were gifts from God. In May 1879 Lilias knew what she should do. God’s work for Lilias was in the desert land of Algeria. Palm trees and camels replaced lampposts and horse drawn carriages. The desert was her home, its people her friends and its Creator her reason for life.
Some people boldly claim, “Christianity is fine for some, but it isn’t for me”. Others feel it is just outdated and irrelevant. Still others see it as a negative, or even dangerous, influence in the world. For better or worse, everyone in the Western world has come into contact with Christianity: we all have some opinion on it.
James Anderson writes with a clear, humorous logic which, rather than attempting to persuade or force a positive view of Christianity, simply lays out the arguments backing up the beliefs. He explores what Christianity really claims, and shows the underlying reason and consistency behind these claims. By the end of Why Should I Believe Christianity?, while you may not agree with the Christian worldview, it is impossible to be left sitting on the fence.
This is the first installment of The Big Ten: Critical Questions Answered – a Christian apologetics series which addresses ten commonly asked questions about God, the Bible, and Christianity. Each book, while easy to read, is challenging and thought-provoking, dealing with subjects ranging from hell to science.
Wasn’t the South African apartheid supported by Christians? Weren’t the Crusades motivated by greed, but advocated by the church? Don’t phoney television preachers manipulate viewers into donating money? – and don’t these, and many more examples, mean Christianity doesn’t really work?
Navigating this area can be difficult and confusing. William Edgar, though, addresses these and other questions honestly, without attempting to dismiss or explain away their uncomfortable realities. He displays the good aspects of the church even more brilliantly through frankly and Biblically acknowledging the bad. If you have ever asked the question Does Christianity Really Work? this will be an interesting and enlightening read, whatever your prior convictions.
