Simple and Clear
One reason I really liked Basic Christianity is that Stott takes the reader on a journey toward answering difficult questions and objections without over-simplifying it, talking down to the reader, or sounding too “preachy.”

Very good book
This is a very good book to learn the basics for the young Christian and good for the older believer to get back to the roots of Christianity.

A good summary.
I am a Catholic, and this book is obviously from a Protestant teaching. Never-the-less, it is a book I would recommend to any non-Christian who wanted to learn about the basics of Christian faith. There are a few points of doctrine I don't agree with, but it is a very easy to understand presentation of the basic truths of Christianity that are also presented in an engaging fashion.

It delivers on its title, Basic Christianity
I read this short book (short compared to many books on doctrine) many years ago. It provides a great overview of Christianity by looking at Christ, his birth, death and resurrection. What a novel idea, writing a book about doctrine with Christ as the center. It was good to become reacquainted with the book and the author in another format.

The book was well read and presented in audio form.

the REAL basics of Christianity...
Basic Christianity by John Stott has been an amazing book.

I have heard of John Stott. I have seen other others mention him and quote him from time to time. I have even seen a few of his books, but until now, I had never had the opportunity to read (or to listen to in this case) anything from this author. I am so glad that I have finally had that opportunity. While listening to this book, with each successive chapter that I completed, he continued to move up my personal ranks of influential authors.

This book is exactly what the title suggests, it is all about Basic Christianity. But what I really loved is that the majority of the topics that this book covers would not have made it into my own book on basic Christianity... But here is the thing: After listening to Stott's explanations and reasons for each of his topics, I began to see how important each of these subjects are. If I had written a book on Basic Christianity, I would have thrown it away in favor of this book.

I mean, sure, we both would have talked about who Jesus is, but the angles that he uses to approach this person of Jesus was literally eye-opening. I have found myself throughout the day contemplating different points that had been made and making mental notes on what I would need to revisit.

Bottom line... Jesus is an amazing figure who stands supreme in the scope of human history. I understand that better now after having listened to this book. I will definitely have to purchase a hard copy of this book.

...unless someone would like to gift it to me during "Pastor Appreciation Month" ?

Concise and well delivered
I agree with the Audiofile Magazine review. The book is a great tool for the advanced more read Christian, as well as for the seeking Christian. It provokes thought and lays it out in a manner that is engaging as well as understandable. I would recommend that everyone should have a copy of this book in their “tool chest” of witnessing tools. The book is a great book to be able to hand someone that is seeking the answers to what it is to be “Christian” in an age of post-modern thinking. I agree with Audiofile Magazine in thier review. The book is a great tool for the advanced, more read Christian, as well as for the seeking Christian. It prokes thought and lays it out in a manner that is ingaging as well as understandible.

Grover Gardner can read anything. His clear, direct, and expressive delivery of this title is engaging. Anyone who finds him- or herself questioning the claims of Christianity should spend time with this book. Author Stott clearly and concisely defends the doctrines of the Bible and describes how the tenets of Scripture can be incorporated into a Christian’s life. This is good for intellectual listeners, as well as for those seeking a simple explanation of the Gospel. Stott has written books sold in the millions and in many different languages. Grover Gardner’s great ability to read aloud makes this a winner as an audiobook. N.L. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine
