Christian Foundations

What people are saying about Christian Foundations: A Grounding for a Life of Faith

  

“Christian Foundations has proven to be a substantial and effective tool to assist people in deepening their understanding of the faith, its historical development and – most importantly – how it makes a difference in their lives.  It equips Christians to respond thoughtfully when asked what they believe and why.  I commend this resource both for its content and its process, and I strongly encourage its use throughout the Diocese of Toronto.”
 
The Most Rev. Colin Johnson
Archbishop of the Anglican Diocese of Toronto
  
“What an outstanding resource for Christian formation. I thought people new to Christian faith would benefit from this practical, formative and engaging resource, and they sure did.  What I did not expect was how beneficial Christian Foundations: A Grounding for a Life of Faith was for those more mature in the faith.  This synoptic, multi-modal learning tool brings together history, bible and theology for the formation of Christians for the sake of the world.”

 “This course is a great starting place to engage both new believers and others looking to deepen their understanding of what it is to be a disciple of Jesus. Using simple language, the narratives, timelines, reflective exercises and discussion questions strengthened my confidence in being able to share with others what I had learned.  I would recommend it to any church wanting to establish solid biblical foundations in their congregation and beyond.”

 “This book introduces readers not only to the story of salvation in Scripture but also to Christian history and theology.  It is a very useful resource for the Church in the twenty-first century.”

"Christian Foundations is a timely, engaging and deeply theological resource for local churches to help people take steps towards faith in Jesus and further develop their identity as missionary disciples in the world."

"This course gave me a fresh and over-arching summary of the biblical story, Church history, the life of Christ and what it means to live as a Christian today. At the same time it provided an opportunity to learn and discuss with others all these things at a deep and personal level. It is a wonderful tool both for someone exploring faith for the first time and for longtime Christians who need to be reminded of all we thought we knew but had forgotten."
