Now That I'm a Christian: What It Means to Follow Jesus
Patton, C. Michael
Rolled into this one volume is a guide to both right belief and right practice. Believers need a solid foundation that maps out the essentials for the Christian faith, as well as how to grow stronger and deeper in that faith. This work addresses both. Written in an introductory manner that is well-informed, witty, and fast-paced, readers will feel at home in the text even if they have not studied these things before. I recommend it with pleasure.See All

As a pastor Im often confronted by new Christians with questions such as How do I get started? What should I read? How do I grow spiritually? Although I havent had good answers in the past, I do now. Im sending them to Michael Pattons excellent book. This is a gem! Eminently readable and experientially relevant, this is a book that addresses with brutal, but always loving, honesty the most pressing theological issues a new believer faces. In fact, you who are a bit older in the faith can also benefit from Michaels insights. Highly recommended for Christians of all ages!See All

I wish this book was out when I first became a Christian! What we believe really matters, and this book covers many basic and necessary beliefs of the Christian faith in an easy-to-read format. Its like sitting in a theology class, but one that brings life and you can understand what the teacher is teaching. There has been no more urgent time in history for us to be reading and learning the basic beliefs of the Christian faith. I encourage all Christians, especially those new to the faith, to not miss the joy and wonder of learning what is written in this book.See All
