      C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity is a classic. It is a winsome, thoughtful, well-written defense of the Christian faith. Some of its better known sections–like the famous liar, lunatic, Lord, trilemma–have become part of the way evangelicals think and speak. No doubt God has used Lewis and Mere Christianity to awaken affections for Christ, engage the mind for Christ, and remove obstacles Author: Kevin Deyoung. The books beginning with Isaiah and ending with Malachi belong to a section of the Christian Bible called the Prophetic Books. These books record God’s messages to the people of Israel and Judah in the form of speeches or sermons, visions, and life experiences of prophets who preached between about and B.C.

There were times in the past when few Christians had actual Bibles and times later when Christians would The central idea of Christianity book only a handful of books their entire lives.

Today, I have several feeds of good, biblical articles, a house full of good Christian books, a Bible software program with thousands of resources, and more access to the Bible than ever before. If we start with the wrong central idea, we will end up with a system of belief that is full of errors.

If my central idea for Christianity were the Church, as it is with the Roman Catholic Church, then the “end” to all of Christian meaning would consummate in the maintenance and existence of this organization. A few caveats: Christianity is a diverse tradition that comprises a variety of perspectives, and not all of the books on this list will agree with each other.

There are several that I argued with quite a lot when I read them, but those that I’ve read were interesting, comforting, or challenging in the best : Teresa Preston.

First published inPaul Johnson’s exceptional study of Christianity has been loved and widely hailed for its intensive research, writing, and magnitude—“a tour de force, one of the most ambitious surveys of the history of Christianity ever attempted and perhaps the most radical” (New York Review of Books).In a highly readable companion to books on faith and history, the scholar Cited by: books based on votes: Mere Christianity by C.S.

Lewis, The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis, Knowing God by J.I. Packer, How Should We Then Live?. The main ideological idea of Christianity is to believe that the way to salvation is through Jesus. Christians believe they are servants of the Lord and are here to carry forward his message.

THE SACRED TEXTS OF CHRISTIANITY BIBLE: The main book of Christianity is the derived from Latin word “Biblia”, which means Book. Bible has two parts the first part is called the Old Testament, which is almost the same as of the Jewish Bible while the second part is called New Testament that includes biographies of Jesus Christ and the apostles and teachings and writings of.

A foundational idea in Christianity is the Trinity, which holds there is a single God with three aspects or parts: God the Father, Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost.

In Book 4 of Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis explains the concept of the Trinity in terms of a "three-personal God.". The book presents human history as a conflict between what Augustine calls the Earthly City (often colloquially referred to as the City of Man, but never by Augustine) and the City of God, a conflict that is destined to end in victory for the latter.

The City of God is marked by people who forego earthly pleasure to dedicate themselves to the eternal truths of God, now revealed fully in the Christian : Augustine of Hippo.

John is one of the most widely quoted verses from the Bible and has been called the most famous Bible verse. It has also been called the "Gospel in a nutshell", because it is considered a summary of the central theme of traditional Christianity: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting : Gospel of John.

While the Synoptic Gospels are seen as focusing on the proclamation of the Kingdom of God, some scholars see eternal life as the central theme of Jesus' preaching in the Gospel of John, where receiving eternal life is seen to be synonymous with entering the Kingdom.

In Scripture, then, doctrine refers to the entire body of essential theological truths. The common belief is that Gnosticism originated as a branch of Christianity. There are some theories that claim the central ideas of Gnosticism existed before the birth of Christ.
