Christianity can be a difficult faith to grab hold of. Oh, the basic concepts are easy enough to grasp- As C. S. Lewis wrote in Mere Christianity , 'The central Christian belief is that Christ's death has somehow put us right with God and given us a fresh start.' So far, so good. But then, we're taught . . . The one God consists of three persons- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit Jesus is both fully God and fully man - at the same time You can have a personal relationship with this very same Jesus - today.

Christianity is a religion of genuine mysteries - things we'll never fully understand this side of Heaven. It's no wonder that the more we learn about Christianity, the more confused many of us feel. But there are many doctrines that sincere, truth-seeking Christians can understand without an advanced degree in theology.

The Complete Idiot's Guide® to Christian Mysteries illuminates the truly tough teachings and doctrines that are the foundations of Christianity, but that also make us feel like complete idiots when we think or talk about them. In clear language, it gives readers straightforward explanations of each teaching or doctrine - and, where appropriate, a handy analogy or two. Key topics include-

Mysteries vs. miracles Theological mysteries - the Incarnation, the Atonement, the Last Things, the Lord's Supper Jesus and his ministry - the missing 30 years, the healings, power over demons and nature, the missing three days after the Crucifixion Other Christian mindbenders - the Holy Spirit, Paul's conversion, and more
