Entering a church and listening to a Sunday sermon for the first time can be like picking up a good novel but starting from the middle of the book. Growing in a new subject can be difﬁcult, and the learning curve may seem enormous. The starting point is key. This is the journey I hope to take with you, starting from the beginning to help bring understanding to Christianity’s foundational truths, teachings, structure, and its written handbook-the Bible. Think of this as your personal guidebook on the subject of Christianity.
The primary readers of this book will be those that are looking for ways to understand their faith, whether new to the subject or someone that has been at it for a while or someone looking at Christianity to see what it is all about. Either way, the result will be you end up with foundational knowledge on the subject and the next time you walk into a situation where Christian doctrine or teaching is part of the discussion; you will not feel out of the loop; you will not feel you just walked into the middle of that conversation but will be a little more confident in joining in the conversation. It is possible you might find yourself knowing a little more than the one standing next to you for the first time, perhaps to where you could help them along their spiritual journey. p. 12
