Leonardo Boff

Orbis Books

Complementing The Imitation of Christ, Thomas à Kempis’s devotional classic of the 15th Century, with a message that speaks to our own time, Boff sets out a manual based on the following of Jesus, an approach that takes into consideration the meaning of discipleship in a world of conflict, and acknowledges our emerging understanding of cosmic evolution.

Justo Gonzalez

Eerdmans

“I do not hope to convince you so that you will believe. That is to be left to the Holy Spirit. I write to you because you share the faith by which I live. I write so that you may share my joy in seeking to understand better this truth that our hearts believe and love.” 

In Knowing Our Faith Justo González introduces the Christian faith in direct, contemporary language that does not assume prior knowledge. While recognizing the existence of various denomi­nations and theological positions, González focuses on the core faith of the Christian church through the centuries.

Covering all the key topics—revelation, God, Jesus Christ, the Spirit, the church, Christian hope, and others—Knowing Our Faith is an ideal resource for both individual reading and small group study, with questions for discussion included at the end of each short chapter.

This accessible resource will help readers understand the Christian faith better—and, more importantly, live it better.
