A masterful, inviting telling of the Christian story. Christian faith, says Martin Copenhaver, is not a subject to be mastered like calculus or Shakespeare—it is a story to be told and a life to be lived. No matter how much or how little you know, To Begin at the Beginning tells the story of Christian faith and invites you to take part in it.
In this book Copenhaver covers basic themes—the Bible, church, ministry, sacraments, prayer, ethics&mdash:in a clear and inviting way. His approach creates a valuable resource for pastors, an accessible guide for seekers and new Christians, and a 'refresher course' for longtime Christians who want to engage anew with what they believe.
