  • What are the basics of Christian belief?
  • How can you know the most important elements of the faith?
  • When you hear people talk about doctrines that seem unfamiliar, how can you know if they are at the core of Christianity or outside the center?

The basics of Christian faith have remained the same for centuries. Affirmed by the church around the world since its earliest years, these truths are summarized in documents known as creeds. Among these, the Apostles' Creed is one of the most important.

In this brief book, Alister McGrath introduces you to the essential truths about God the Father, the person and work of Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. Divided into six sections with reflection and discussion questions included for each core truth, "I Believe" is ideal for your personal study or for use in a small group or Sunday school class.

Here is the basic book you need to understand the basics of Christianity.
