Why is it that when Christians are asked to explain their faith they are often left speechless? True, there is much about faith that defies description and explanation. Yet John Pritchard thinks we can do better than stunned silence when posed with challenging questions about what it means to have faith in Jesus. In a world that increasingly doubts the need for organized religion, it is important for Christians to have straightforward and respectful answers to questions such as Is Christianity for those who can’t get a life? and What use is a dying God? and What’s the use of praying?. In How to Explain Your Faith, Pritchard helps us explore these challenging questions and many more.
In a style that is simple without being simplistic or sugar-coated, practical without being preachy or pious, Pritchard takes readers to the heart of the matter of Christian faith. He not only helps us articulate a response to challenges from others but helps us personally enter more deeply into the mysteries of Christian faith and the heart of that faith, Jesus Christ.
Right Reverend John Pritchard is the Anglican Bishop of Jarrow, England. He is the author of numerous books, including Living Easter Through the Year and Leading Intercessions, both published by Liturgical Press.
