Why Jesus?

Perhaps you have had the funny feeling that God wants to get your attention.

Or maybe you're intrigued with what you've heard about Jesus.

Or maybe you're simply looking for meaning and direction in your life.

John Stott has spent a lifetime wrestling with questions about Jesus both personally and in dialogue with skeptics and seekers around the globe. Now in Why I Am a Christian he provides a compelling, persuasive case for considering the Christian faith.

If you take an honest look at Jesus, you will discover that following him gives you the purpose, identity and freedom you've been searching for--and far more than you have ever imagined.

Why I am a Christian is easy to read and presents the essentials of Christianity clearly. The book can be read devotionally by Christians with much profit. It can also be given as a gift to non-Christians interested in learning about Christianity.

John E. Shaffett for The Christian Librarian, Volume 49.1, 2006

"In a time when many Christian authors recommend the claims of Christian faith by descriptions of faith encounters and invitations to 'dance with the mystery,' John Stott . . . offers a clear and compelling account of the theological basis for his own belief. . . . It's the sort of book that Christians who need a more reasoned, thoughtful approach to their faith will read and then pass along to skeptical friends."
