Not since C.S. Lewis's Mere Christianity has such a wise and informed leader taken the time to explain what Christianity is and how it is practiced.

Walking the reader through the Christian faith step-by-step and question by question, Wright's Simply Christian offers explanations for even the toughest doubt-filled skeptics, leaving believers with a reason for renewed faith.
