Rate this:

A revealing and fascinating short book that illustrates the varieties of Christianity and explains what separates Christians as well as what unites them.

Christianity began as a minor sect within Judaism and has now become one of the major world religions, with nearly two billion adherents spread across every nation on earth. It began with a small group of people who shared the same language, lifestyle, and background, but now embraces many languages and cultures, giving rise to an astounding variety of practices and interpretations, yet all with a common basis of shared faith inspired by the teaching, life, death, and new life of a carpenter from Nazareth. Whether they are Copts in Egypt, members of the Orthodox church in Russia, Baptists in America, or Anglicans in an English village, they share three elements that are at the core of all Christianity: belonging, believing, and behaving.

Malcolm Guite gives readers insight into the different types of Christianity with candor, but never bias. An ideal introduction to the histories and mysteries of Christianity, What Do Christians Believe? also contains a list of suggested further reading and Web resources.
