"Christianity, if false is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important".
It is in your interest to take time to find out for yourself if the message of the Bible is true. Here are some tools that may help you.
An Overview of The Christian Message
By This Name
The ideal book to help explain the message of the Bible to a post-modern, post-Christian, & secular society. Written for those in a culture influenced by Pantheism, Polytheism and Animism, By This Name peels the religion off the sacred book, the Bible, and lets the ancient story speak for itself. In the process, a message of hope snaps into focus. It is a must read. The book lays the foundation of the Gospel with major Old Testament stories, builds upon essential biblical truths in a logical manner, and culminates at the Cross and the Resurrection.
We recommend buying this book for ease of reading, but you can also download it free as a PDF.
