Publisher's Summary

Rightly understood and rightly communicated, the Christian faith is one of great joy. It is an invitation to God's kingdom, where tears are replaced by laughter and longing hearts find their purpose and their home.

This is the heart of the gospel: God's search to reclaim us and love us as his own. But have we truly grasped this? Those of us who have disdained Christianity as a religion of bigotry - have we repudiated the genuine article or merely demonstrated our own prejudice and ignorance? Those of us who are Christians - have we deeply apprehended the mission of Jesus, and do our ways and character faithfully reflect his beauty? From the nature of God, to the human condition, to the work of Jesus, to God's coming kingdom, and all that lies between, how well do we understand the foundational truths of Christianity and their implications?

The Faith is a book for our troubled times and for decades to come, for Christians and non-Christians alike. It is the most important book Chuck Colson and Harold Fickett have ever written: A thought-provoking, soul-searching, and powerful manifesto of the great, historical central truths of Christianity that have sustained believers through the centuries. Brought to immediacy with vivid, true stories, here is what Christianity is really about and why it is a religion of hope, redemption, and beauty.

Fantastic. Great Read. Nothing better.

I had been reading the book on and off as I had time, and purchased the audio book to fit it into by busy schedule. This book does exactly what it says. It concisely and directly explains the chrisian faith, what we believe, and why it matters. The title is the best review of this book. Whether you are a christian or not, this book is a must read. You will not find a better book on the Christian faith that this one.

EXCELLENT BOOK - DEFINITELY WORTH A LISTEN

I enjoyed listening to this book and also found it educational to boot.

Chuck addresses some deep and meaningful issue in a very intelligent manner.

Chucks legal background shows in the clarity of his presentation.

I was encouraged and edified by it.

Thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand Christianity.

Great Book and needed greatly

Great read and great to listen to. I have had this book on on my bookcase for over a decade. Finally finished it! I believe every serious Christian should read it a least once. I am sorry I took so long to finish it.

Comprehensive survey

Mr. Colson himself narrated this amazing comprehensive survey for today's Christian. Filled with foundational historical stories along with recent history and contemporary examples illustrating each chapter. Kept me coming right back and rewinding to catch the all the rich information!
