Taking a nondenominational approach similar to the "mere Christianity" advocated by C. S. Lewis, Alister McGrath uses the creeds as framework with which to explore the teachings of the Christian doctrines and what it means to live a life of faith.

In this new book, he tells of his discovery of Christianity while a student at Oxford University and takes readers on a panoramic tour of the landscape of the Christian faith. Using the story of his own crisis of faith, he looks at why Christians believe what they do, how we can best understand these ideas, and the difference they make to the way we think about ourselves and our world so that readers can find their own map to navigate the landscape of faith.

"Again and again, Alister McGrath elegantly performs that central task of any teacher: to enable his students and readers, starting from the familiar ground of what they already know, to go on to explore new territory, and begin to see an expanded horizon."

Church Times

"McGrath's ability to translate often complex theological matters into contemporary prose for a popular audience once again shines through, with an immensely readable style that captivates readers from the opening pages."
