A Handbook of the Christian Faith - a book review

"Who wrote the Bible?" "Why did the church divide into Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Protestant, and then into so many Protestant denominations?" "What is the difference between Christianity and Mormonism or New Age religion?" If you have asked these questions or wondered anything else about the Christian faith, this book will probably have the answer.

A HANDBOOK OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH by John Schwarz, is a wealth of information with the answers to those questions and many more. The first half of the book covers the Bible - the Old Testament, life of Jesus, the gospels, epistles and other writings of the New Testament.
The second half discusses the history of the church, doctrines and beliefs and goes into other religions and beliefs. In these ten chapters you can find just about everything you ever wanted to know. As I read through it, I was impressed with how much usable information was contained in just 288 pages.

This is the perfect book for the new Christian who wants a catch-up course on what their new belief is all about and for those seasoned Christians who want to 'tie up loose ends.'

It is well organized, easy to navigate and easy to understand. I was happy to see that the detailed Table of Contents and excellent Index make it easy to find information and quick answers. It has already been a useful addition to my reference library.
